KUALA LUMPUR: Eversendai Corp Bhd claimed it has created a world record and landmark feat in the construction industry with the one-of-a-kind iconic landmark project, the “One Za’abeel” in Dubai.
One Za’abeel is an iconic, high-rise, mixed-use luxury development in Dubai.
The structure puts in place twin high-rise buildings, a 300 meters tall Tower A, which will house offices and a hotel, the world’s first vertical resort, whereas Tower B, standing at 235 meters tall oriented towards the residential units.
The two towers are linked 125 meters in the air by ‘The Link’, a 9000-tonne bridge, a 230 meters long steel structure that will top the list of engineering marvels and is set to break the world record for the longest cantilevered building in the world.
“I am extremely proud of our excellent team of engineers and highly skilled workforce for their dedication and commitment in lifting ‘The Link’ bridge safely and successfully adding to another historical Eversendai milestone achievement," executive chairman and group managing director Tan Sri Dato’ A K Nathan said in a statement today.
“This project adds on to our long and colourful track record in constructing some of the world’s most prestigious and high profile iconic landmark structures," he added.
