Lighthouse Tower Facts
Lighthouse Tower Description
Lighthouse Tower Commercial by DIFC Development Authority at DIFC. DIFC is a 110 acre free-zone envisaged to be the world’s newest international financial centre serving the vast region between Western Europe and East Asia. The 400 metre tall Lighthouse Tower will accommodate prestigious offices over 64 floors which sit above a 2-storey podium and a leisure deck with health club, swimming pool, executive lounge and cultural spaces.
A beacon of modernity, the Lighthouse Tower will be characterised by special external lighting features that will distinguish it from all other high-rise buildings in Dubai. As well, the approved environmentally sensitive design of the tower will include provisions for various applications for renewable energy, reduced carbon emissions and energy saving techniques.
The design of the Lighthouse Tower incorporates passive cooling, optimized daylight use through a responsive façade, and wind turbines and photo-voltaic panels for energy generation. The structure would rise as two separate towers, bridged from level 10, all the way up to approximately 300 meters above ground. The structure was to hold a number of sky gardens. Three large 225 kW wind turbines, 29 meters in diameter, on the building’s south-facing side were going to generate electricity.
