Wasl Tower Is Set To Be The World’s Tallest Sustainable Building

Dubai is always breaking records, and this time in sustainability, with the impending completion of the Wasl Tower. This 64-storey architectural marvel is poised to stand as the tallest sustainable building globally, showcasing Dubai’s unwavering commitment to cutting-edge green practices in construction.

This towering structure, reaching an impressive height of 302 meters, is not just about breaking records; it’s a harmonious blend of traditional renewable materials and cutting-edge ingenuity. According to Hesham Abdullah Al Qassim, CEO of Wasl Group, the tower symbolises a continuous effort to innovate and create sustainable developments that align with both people’s needs and the UAE’s climate goals.

Scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2024, Wasl Tower stands tall, both literally and metaphorically, embodying Dubai’s role as a pioneer in sustainable construction. What sets it apart is its ingenious use of ceramic fins, aligning seamlessly with the UAE’s sustainability goals, especially during the impactful Year of Sustainability.

The tower’s façade boasts finely crafted ceramic fins, a hybrid marvel of clay and low-tech glazed ceramic encased in aluminum. These fins serve a trifecta of purposes – providing shade, enhancing wind-induced cooling, and ushering natural light deep into the building’s interior. A true multi-tasker in the world of architecture!

Developed by Wasl, this expansive mixed-use project sprawls across approximately 167,733 square meters, offering a diverse range of spaces, including residential apartments, offices, restaurants, and a luxurious Mandarin Oriental hotel with 259 keys, not to forget the inviting swimming pool.
