Consultancy and construction company Mace has announced the completion and handover of a new mixed-use development, One Za’abeel, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Mace was appointed to lead the project management of the luxury development.
Mace Consult managing director MEA Christopher Seymour said: “The newly completed One Za’abeel now stands proud as one of the most iconic buildings in this part of the world and we are honoured to have been able to have been project managers on this scheme.”
The development features a 230m-long steel and glass link, or skybridge, which spans a major four-lane motorway.
Suspended 100m above the ground, the link connects the project’s two towers and houses a rooftop infinity pool, fine dining restaurants, and a destination bar.
Tower A includes offices, hotel rooms, and serviced apartments while Tower B is predominately residential.

In 2021, the company completed Tower A’s topping for client Ithra Dubai, in collaboration with main contractor ALEC.
The tower required 215,000m³ of concrete and 54,110 tonnes (t) of steel reinforcement.
Owned by Investment Corporation of Dubai, One Za’abeel aims to secure the Guinness World Records title for the world’s ‘Longest Cantilevered Building’.
Mace Group deputy CEO and Consult CEO Jason Millett said: “The opening of One Za’abeel, one of the most impressive structures that Mace has ever built, marks an appropriate moment to reflect on our ambitions in the UAE having just celebrated our 25th year of working here.”
Mace’s current portfolio of properties in the region includes Jumeirah Beach Residences, Expo 2020, Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, Hyatt Capital Gate Hotel, and Ski Dubai.
The company has also revealed plans to open new offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
It aims to increase its UAE workforce by approximately 50%, recruiting over the next 12 months to grow the team from 240 to 350 by year-end.
