Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has announced that it has begun supplying the '1 Residences' towers with 3,351 refrigeration tonnes (RT), from its district cooling plant at the Dubai International Financial Center.
The ‘1 Residences towers’ comes as part of the huge ‘wasl1’ project which incorporates around 13 residential towers developed by wasl properties, a subsidiary of wasl Asset Management Group.
A gateway between the old and new districts of Dubai, wasl1 is the only project that allows free ownership in this part of the city.
The ‘1 Residences’ is the epitome of the project and a rather modern engineering masterpiece. It embraces two luxurious residential towers that lie on Sheikh Zayed Road and overlook the Zabeel Park. Each tower is built in the shape of number 1 and both cover an area of 102,282 sq m.
The engineering design of the two towers, which represent the second phase of the Wasl1, translates Dubai’s passion for being at the first place. The first tower is 101,569 sq m in area while the second is 96,103 sq m and the total built-up area is 160,131 sq m.
Each tower is composed of 44 floors and both are interconnected through a suspension bridge that runs from floor 36 to floor 42. Through the project, which embraces 753 apartments and a variety of amenities, residents are granted panoramic views of modern Dubai.
Empower said as per the agreement signed with wasl Asset Management Group, the district cooling capacity for the entire project is expected to reach 30,000 RT.
