About Al Seef Tower
The Al Seef Tower is a 44-floor residential tower in the Dubai Marina in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The tower has a total structural height of 215 m (705 ft). Construction of Al Seef Tower was completed in April 2005.
Al Seef Tower is of unrivalled architectural and structural design and usually a project of this nature generally takes at least two and a half years but the hallmark of this tower is that it was built in record time-21 months (completed April 2005). Another point of interest is its design which incorporates a squared shape on the lower floors, a wider extended shape (due to balconies) at mid-level, a circular shape at the higher level, and a pyramid crown at top. It is definitely an eclectic design which may not work for everyone.
With different sized apartments on different floors, Al Seef Tower have more complex architectural and structural aspects involved than if you are building a tower with the same sized apartments throughout. We had to include a cantilever above the two bedroom apartments and a larger cantilever on the 36th floor above the three bedroom apartments.
The Al Seef tower offers a range of residences from 2-bedroom to penthouses, which include spacious floor plans of 1900-6000 cubic feet. It also has standard amenities like pool and gym. A Mashreq Bank branch is housed at ground level. It is one of a few tower projects in the UAE for developer Deyaar.
