The 53-storey, 102,193m2 ICD Brookfield Place – a lifestyle and business destination located in Dubai’s DIFC – has opened its doors to the first wave of tenants, including Julius Baer, Natixis, Latham & Watkins, and Akin Gump.
The property offers curated dining, retail, and community spaces alongside Grade A modern workspace. EY, the building’s anchor tenant, expects to move into the property in October 2020, while the Arts Club will open later this year.
The precinct features 91,974m2 of Grade A office space alongside 14,864m2 of curated retail amenities including a private members club, The Arts Club, a chef-driven food hall, health and fitness club, and a community hub.
The building also benefits from more than 13,000m2 of green space, including a half acre, 31m high public atrium, to be enlivened with arts and cultural events.
ICD Brookfield Place also sets a new standard regionally in workplace design with column free floorplates and an optimal internal planning grid, which enables efficient workplace design, providing for a variety of office layouts that can adapt as businesses evolve.
Commenting on the milestone, the chairman of ICD Brookfield, Khalid Al Bakhit, said: “ICD Brookfield Place is a new destination for Dubai and a remarkable addition to the city’s renowned skyline. With a growing call for workplaces to evolve in the face of a ‘new normal’, we are proud to offer a world-class workspace within an urban setting in the heart of the city, which will be home to regional headquarters of some of the world’s leading companies.
“ICD Brookfield Place offers numerous reasons to return to the workplace; the richness of amenities, best-in-class technology, wellness features, and hotel-standard property management will elevate the standards of the commercial property market in the UAE.”
Aspects of the base build, such as the air filtration system, which increases fresh air by 30%, along with UV air treatment, helps protect against the spread of infection. Such innovative features were key to the building achieving its LEED Platinum status making ICD Brookfield Place EMEA’s tallest and largest LEED® Platinum office building.
“As businesses transition back to physical workplaces, finding ways to respond to the health and safety of the workforce is more important than ever before. ICD Brookfield Place is at the cutting edge of health-centric building design,” Khalid Al Bakhit concluded.
