Innovative glass curtain wall provides dramatic facade for new Dubai residential tower 

Located adjacent to the landmark World Trade Centre (WTC), the WTC Residence features 378 luxury residences including a two-story penthouse in the higher tower. The design includes several notable amenities such as a landscaped rooftop and terrace, temperature-controlled pool with poolside café, business suites and a fitness centre, as well as several levels of private balconies and garden rooms. Many of the residences are two-storey duplex units with dramatic full-height views.

Using modern construction methods and materials, including an innovative glass curtain wall system, the 1,400,000 sq ft apartment complex, which stands 31 storeys along the shorter leg and 41 storeys at the tall end, is topped off with a large, angled shading device. Additionally, there is covered and underground parking to accommodate more than 650 cars. The entry drive features cascading waterfalls and lush landscaping leading to a circular porte-cochere. The lobby is a grand, double-height space with 24-hour concierge and valet services.

The public spaces and units are contemporary in design with an abundance of glass and marble, and stainless steel kitchen appliances. Units are available in 1-, 2-, 3- or 4-bedroom layouts with electronic shades, mood lighting, central air conditioning controlled by room, high-tech security systems, and floor to ceiling, double-height windows giving spectacular views of downtown Dubai. Additionally, there is a private rooftop club and restaurant open exclusively to residents and their guests.
