A key part of this has been the provision of good quality commercial space – an objective pursued based on our understanding of the needs of international companies and often against the warnings of those who said that Dubai was facing a chronic oversupply of office space. The successful pre-leasing in record time of Uptown Tower’s Grade A office complex reaffirmed our focus, and as we mark the opening of Phase 2 of Uptown Dubai, we will aim to fully replicate this success with two new commercial towers that will add to the expansion of our business district and DMCC’s overall value proposition.”
