Completing one of Abu Dhabi's tallest towers in the City of Lights

The City of Lights on Al Reem Island is a residential and commercial community draped across 140 acres of verdant waterfront oasis and situated within 1km of the central business district in Abu Dhabi.

In 2014, Multiplex completed the Design and Construction of Addax Tower, located within the City of Lights development, and is currently providing select facilities management services.

The project encompasses a high-rise office tower atop nine levels of podium and a basement carpark with 1,111 parking spaces. Designed with large column-free floor plates, it has set the precedent for commercial office space in the region, offering flexible and intelligent workspaces along with sweeping views across the Arabian Gulf and back to Abu Dhabi.

The 60 storey tower was constructed using reinforced and post-tensioned concrete, encapsulated with an ultra-modern aluminium and glass fa├žade. Adjoining the office tower to the south is a six level reinforced concrete podium structure.

Covering a gross construction area of over 180,000m2 and standing at 282 metres, the tower is one of the tallest towers in Abu Dhabi.
