Dubai: DAMAC Properties on Saturday announced the launch of a Dh7.4 billion project in Dubai – ‘AYKON City’. The six-tower luxury project on Sheikh Zayed Road is set to be completed in 2021. Construction will commence before summer.

The project will comprise an 80-storey AYKON Hotel and Residences, a 63-storey DAMAC Maison serviced hotel residences, a 60-storey apartment tower, a 65-storey office tower and two 30-floor ultra-luxury residential towers featuring car lifts to each unit and direct views over the Dubai Canal and Safa Park.

The 4 million sq ft development is located on the eastern and western sides of Sheikh Zayed road at the Safa Park intersection and in close proximity to the Dubai Canal. It will join other iconic developments in the city’s business district such as the Burj Khalifa, Emirates Towers and the Dubai International Financial Centre.

This project will feature the ‘AYKON Dare’: an adventure experience on the Hotel’s 80th floor where guests can walk around the outside of the tower’s roof with magnificent views of the city. ‘AYKON City’ will also consist of the AYKON Plaza with swimming pools, spa, beach club, cafes, restaurants, yoga and tai-chi areas, and a private members’ club.

“We are delighted to announce a project of this scale in collaboration with Meraas Holding and on such a site in this premier location of the city. DAMAC Properties is an established, chosen and trusted real estate developer in the region, selected for the largest and most influential projects. This area of our city is one of the most important developments in Dubai’s expansion, opening up access to many kilometres of the Dubai Canal,” DAMAC chairman Hussain Sajwani said in a statement.
