Piling works for the 70-storey Cavalli Tower have commenced according to developer DAMAC Properties. The luxury residential project was launched last year and is being built at a total investment of $545mn and is located in the Dubai Marina. On completion, it will offer occupants views of the Palm Jumeirah and is to boast premium interior designs by Italian fashion house Roberto Cavalli.
According to the developer, piling works are being executed by the National Piling & Land Draining Works. A total of 213 piles and approximately 1,400 metric tonnes of steel and 10,000cu/m of concrete are being used in the piling process, which entails drilling the ground to provide footings, in order to transmit the building’s load to deep strong strata underneath.
“This is a milestone achievement as piling provides the foundations for the impending superstructure. We have received enormous interest in this project and have nearly sold out all units, our customers are super excited that construction work is progressing, and we can’t wait to build and complete, what we believe will be one of the most iconic and innovative towers that Dubai has ever seen,” said Niall McLoughlin, Senior Vice President at Damac.
Once complete, the project will feature 485 units which are divided into three sections: the first floors are considered luxury, the middle section is upper luxury, while the top floors offer super luxury features and finishes.
The luxury and upper luxury sections will have access to their own sky pool and sky gardens, while the super luxury category boasts an infinity pool, a cigar lounge and a private pavilion, where residents can host their own private dinner parties and hire their own chefs, stated the developer.
Designed by Shaun Killa – who also created the Dubai Museum of the Future – the tower is expected to be completed in four years, DAMAC noted.
In March 2022, S&P Global upgraded DAMAC’s rating as the developer returned to growth, while in June, in an exclusive interview with Middle East Construction News (MECN), the developer said North America is a key target market in its expansion plans. The Dubai-based developer then partnered with de GRISOGONO to launch the Safa Two tower project.
