Architect will design two towers of 21 and 27 storeys for the Dubai Chamber of Commerce

The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry has selected a 1.5m sq ft scheme by architect Gensler as an extension to its headquarters.

The scheme, which is expected to start on-site in early 2007, consists of two towers of 27 and 21 storeys each. It will also contain a multi-purpose hall and a bridge link to the department’s main chamber.

Philip Gillard, Gensler project director, said: “This building represents a long-term solution and will set the regional benchmark for new buildings to come.”
