Wasl Tower is a new residential complex located in Al Wasl, Dubai. The project was developed by Wasl Properties in partnership with architectural consultant UNStudio, a Dutch company. Construction started in 2015 and is still ongoing.
The 63-storey skyscraper has a distinctive winding asymmetric shape. It has been dubbed the ‘breathing tower’ because of the ceramic fins on its façade, which rhythmically reflect sunlight and create an effect of movement. The ceramic façade allows external noise to be suppressed and the temperature inside the building to be regulated, while the onsite gardens will increase the amount of oxygen.
The tower is located in the central part of the emirate on Sheikh Zayed Road, one of the city’s major highways. The area offers a well-developed infrastructure and a comfortable living environment.
Wasl Tower will have a total of 144 residential apartments located on the top floors of the building. It will also feature commercial spaces, offices, a museum of light and vertical gardens, and the Mandarin Oriental, a luxury hotel with 257 rooms that will occupy floors 16 through 38. The design of the building includes sports fields, retail outlets, restaurants, cafés, and exterior lighting for light shows.
Wasl Tower offers a wide range of comfortable accommodations. Its strategic location offers easy access to major attractions, business centres, and the airport. Properties are popular among business travellers, visitors, and families with children.
Investors can expect a high return on the purchase of an apartment at Wasl Tower. The average return on investment rate for properties near Sheikh Zayed Road is 7.9%.
