Ciel is currently under construction and considered to be a high rise building and even to be known as the world’s tallest hotel upon its completion. The location is in Dubai Marina.
The tower, designed by NORR and developed by The First Group (TFG), will stand 360 meters tall and accommodate 1,042 luxury suites. The newest addition to Dubai’s skyline is a skyscraper located in the heart of the Marina, near to major attractions such as the Marina Walk and the Marina Mall shopping and entertainment complex. The project is well connected to the city’s transportation grid, with easy access to roads and the metro.
“We are extremely honoured to receive these prestigious awards for Ciel, Ciel is a remarkable project that will become a landmark in its own right, further enhancing Dubai’s reputation as one of the world’s great cities and tourism destinations. The ambition and character evident in Ciel’s striking design reflects our unique approach to developing quality hotels that strive to set a new benchmark for upper-midscale accommodation.” — Rob Burns, CEO of The First Group, while receiving the awards on behalf of the firm.
The structure, which has been under construction since August 2019, is a glass sculpture inspired by the concept of vertical living and is scheduled to open in late 2023. The scheme, in fact, “emphasizes the sheer verticality of the skyscraper itself.”
