HH's 22-storey commercial building is one of first to be occupied in Business Bay district
Developers HH's O14 building will be one of the first in Business Bay in Dubai to be occupied
O14 was launched in 2006 with main investors District Investment and Development and HH.
The 22-storey commercial building comprises 42 units with 6,500ft² of retail space and 165,000m² of open office space. More than 90% of the units have been sold sold.
The first occupiers will be law firm Habib Al Mulla and Company and Dr Obaid Busit Legal. Some buyers are currently undergoing the fit-out stage and will be ready to move in shortly
The building includes a cafe, restaurants, a dedicated event space on the roof, corporate functions, male and female prayer rooms and four basement levels.
The striking exterior was designed by architect Reiser + Umemoto. The 1m space between the facade and the building's glass surface creates a chimney effect causing hot air to rise, creating an efficient passive cooling system which reduces energy consumption by about 30%.
