Reef Tower is a 34 storey office tower built in the Jumeirah Lakes Towers development in Dubai, providing 31,000 square meters of space for leasing. The tower sits above a three level parking podium which provides the required parking for the tenants of the building. Reef Tower provides world class office space with maximum flexibility in layout and space, with excellent views of the lake to one side and Sheikh Zayed Road on the other. The design creates a ‘crystalline’ chiseled form, resulting in a nontraditional distribution of space within the tower. This allows for more leaseable areas in the higher rent zone (upper floors) and less leaseable areas in the lower rent zone (lower floors), thus maximizing the return to the owner as well as providing more space in the building oriented towards the best views.
The ground floor reception lobby takes the crisp, elegant lines of the exterior form and combines them in a collection of powerful paths of movement and light within the space. The mezzanine level augments the building’s world-class facilities by providing tenants with a health club, a business center, and an internet café which extends outward onto a deck level overlooking the central water body. The top two floors are set back to create distinct executive floors with framed views outwards.
