Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) has appointed the local Brewer Smith Brewer Group (BSBG) as the lead consultant for the design and executive architecture, interior design and structural engineering for the next two commercial towers at its Uptown Dubai development.

The mid-rise towers will be 28 and 21 storeys, featuring approximately 67,500 square metres of commercial space and 5,000 sq m for retail and food and beverage outlets.

DMCC awarded Belgium’s Six Construct the contract to build a mixed-use high-rise tower as part of the first phase of Uptown Dubai in 2019. The 78-storey tower will be about 300 metres tall and will have a total gross floor area of about 103,650 sq m.

Uptown Dubai, formerly known as the Burj 2020 District, is being built on a 106,000 sq m site next to Jumeirah Lakes Towers within the DMCC Free Zone. The original masterplan includes seven towers ranging in height from 60 metres to more than 500 metres. The towers will have commercial, residential and hotel space.

The tower’s concept architect is the US’ Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill (AS+GG). US-based WATG prepared the masterplan.
