P-17 Tower Facts
P-17 Tower Description
P-17 Tower Apartments by Tasameem Project Management LLC at DIFC. The P-17 Tower is a stunning, 77-storey mixed-use tower development which is set to grace Sheikh Zayed Road in the neighbourhood of Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
The design of the super-slim P-17 Tower gives the illusion of constantly changing its appearance with the movement of people and the sun.
Standing tall at 370 metres and just 30 metres wide, the tower’s darker front facade rises from the ground and twists slightly in a striking glass and steel design. Behind the elegant form, increasingly taller blades gently splay outwards, conveying the appearance of layered planes which dynamically move sideways to produce a challenging, gravity-defying form.
The design integrates contemporary architectural thought, with innovative engineering solutions.
At the mid-building level tower, an angled atrium cuts straight through the tower filling a void over several storeys, which serves the five-star hotel and the serviced apartments.
Above the hotel are premium residential apartments and two floors of VIP suites which enjoy incomparable views of Dubai.
This Sky Atrium is the true centre of P17 Tower. Its seven levels cantilever over each other and around a seven-storey atrium facing the sea. One third of the way up the building, it is a zone of elevation incident during the day but at night becomes a zone of activity and light. Since the birth of the skyscraper and Louis Sullivan’s vertical division of them into base, shaft and pediment, a disproportionate amount of architectural endeavour has been concentrated on the pediment – some progression or flourish at the top that terminates it. Paradoxically, P17 Tower reinvents skyscrapers by revealing their natural centre of gravity and bringing them down to earth.
