Jordan’s tallest tower, The Heights, tops out

The Heights, the latest tall tower in Al Abdali, Jordan by DAMAC Properties topped out in December at 35 storeys. Destined to be the highest residential tower in the country upon completion in 2013, The Heights is already garnering much attention from the local community with DAMAC Properties’ Senior Vice President Niall McLoughlin confirming: “We have experienced very strong interest from Jordanians, both in Amman and working abroad, as well as the international market. Only a very small number of apartments remain and we expect The Heights to have sold out before the end of the year (2012).”

DAMAC Properties currently have 65 buildings under construction in the Middle East however The Heights is the company’s first project in Jordan. Part of this new development is The Lofts which has passed the sixth floor of construction and The Courtyard which is past the fifth floor, both of which will provide luxury apartments upon completion with rooftop retreats for residents. Lower levels of The Heights will comprise of high-end boutique retail outlets with restaurants and designer shops.
