WSP, one of the world's leading professional services consulting firms, has announced the successful topping out of Emaar Development's Opera Grand tower in Dubai.
This significant construction milestone was celebrated via an exclusive ceremony which was attended by key dignitaries and project stakeholders. It builds on the successful topping out of Emaar’s Il Primo Tower in June, said the statement from WSP.
Rising on either side of Dubai Opera, Il Primo and Opera Grand are set to become integral architectural masterpieces that complement the vibrant cultural heart of Dubai, it added.
Situated on the south side of The Opera House between The Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa, the 72-storey building boasts a mix of one-, two-, three-, four and five-bedroom apartments, as well as five-bedroom podium-level townhouses.
Opera Grand promises the perfect blend of luxury, culture, and a uniquely orchestrated living experience in the heart of Dubai, said a top official.
"WSP Middle East are proud to be engineering another landmark structure within the Dubai Opera District. Through the provision of world-class technical expertise and a commitment to optimising stakeholder collaboration at every phase of construction, WSP’s project team has once again risen to the task and raised the bar for engineering and construction standards," remarked Mark Farley, the Managing Director of Property & Buildings. 
WSP Middle East is the lead consultant and architect of record for this project, and is working alongside the contractor China State Construction Engineering Corporation. 
"Following the successful topping out of Il Primo Tower earlier in 2021, this latest milestone at Opera Grand Tower rounds out a quinella of high-rise top outs for Emaar Development’s Dubai Opera District portfolio, thus strengthening the growing renown of this world-class destination," stated Farley.
With proximity to major roads and the Dubai Metro, the whole city will be within easy reach of residents as well as visitors of this iconic tower, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
