1/JBR on track for completion in 2019

Dubai Properties’ flagship project 1/JBR, which is taking shape on one of the final plots of land in Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) district, is on track for a timely handover in the fourth quarter of 2019.

The premium development is located on Al Mamsha Street at the entrance of JBR nestled between the five-star properties of Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa and The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai.

Bearing the distinction of being the only residential development in the district with private beachfront access, 1/JBR promises to set new benchmarks for Dubai’s prime residential sector through offering a luxury lifestyle experience in an aesthetically understated ambience, says the top developer.

On the project, Marwan Al Kindi, the executive director of sales and sales operations at Dubai Properties, says: “We are committed to the highest standards of excellence in every aspect of the residential and commercial development process.”

With the core walls cast as far up as the 14th floor, work is rapidly progressing at the speed of one floor per week, states Al Kindi.

“Once completed, 1/JBR will rise 46 floors above the Arabian Gulf and feature a total of 163 units, including two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments, as well as five-bedroom penthouses with minimalist interiors, subtly incorporating luxury elements,” he notes. “In total, the high-rise development will comprise a gross floor area (GFA) of over 45,000 sq m, with the built-up area (BUA) spanning 74,000 sq m.”

Meticulously designed to offer the utmost privacy, apartments on the top 15 floors will feature private lobbies, while those on the first 30 floors will have semi-private lobbies.

Dubai Properties has appointed Edge as the design architect and lead consultant for 1/JBR.

In collaboration with WSP, one of the world’s leading engineering professional services companies, the award-winning Dubai-based architecture firm is working closely with the master developer’s in-house project management team to ensure that all phases of the construction progress on schedule, says Al Kindi.

The main contractor for 1/JBR is Dubai Contracting Company (DCC), one of the key players in the field of building construction in the UAE.

Martin Baerschmidt, the founding partner and managing director at Edge, says: “We designed 1/JBR keeping in mind two primary goals – waterfront views and spatial clarity. The minimalist aesthetic permeates every aspect of the building and its interior design.”

“As a result, each space conveys a sense of serenity that is not commonly found in residential buildings. Inspired by Emirates Towers, one of Dubai’s most iconic mixed-use developments, 1/JBR, upon completion, will redefine Dubai’s skyline as it becomes one of the most slender towers in this city of skyscrapers,” remarks Baerschmidt.

To ensure residents enjoy easy access to their homes with minimal traffic snarls, Dubai Properties has worked closely with Dubai Municipality and the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to plan a dedicated roundabout, says Al Kindi.

Also a part of the infrastructure development in the area, a brand-new exit along Mamsha Street will enable vehicles to get to and from the site without having to use King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street along JBR, he adds.
