PRESS SUMMARY

All about the new Tameer projects in DubaiStanding out in the Majan district of Dubailand, Podium sets the bar high on a perfect symbiosis between architecture and technology. Its one-of-a-kind façade, boasting a 100 meter tall L.E.D. screen, elevates Podium to the rank of world-famous commercial landmarks.

For the businesses setting up offices at Podium, no address could compare to the prestige and impact of working behind and communicating on the largest screen ever built.

An unprecedented application of innovative architecture.

Visible at a distance of 1.5 kilometers, the magnificent screen on the façade of Podium is designed by the L.E.D. technology experts who worked on the Argosy Casino in Illinois and the Grand Lisboa & surrounding skyline in China. This curved façade will be a powerful medium for advertising, messaging and art. Highly-reflective tinted glass will be utilized to achieve astounding visual quality, as the massive screen gives off an elegant bluish sapphire glow. Aluminum panels, mullions and canopies will frame the glass components in buffed natural aluminum.

Be swept off your feet 35-storeys high.

33 levels of premium commercial office space, and 2 floors dedicated to retail - with 6 shops providing retail therapy on the ground level and mezzanine. A signature restaurant will also find its place in the second floor. Opulently spacious, each floor is approximately 10,000 square feet – giving a lot of room to inspire a productive business environment.

A Grand Welcome.

The monumental lobby greets you with its striking design as you walk in. Reflecting the brilliant curved form of the tower, the lobby is sure to make every entrance feel grand – from its curvilinear ceiling to its polished stone patterned floor and glazed glass walls, every detail comes together to give the lobby a sleek and almost overwhelming effect. At the center of the spacious lobby, a visually refreshing water cascade will be delivered by the illusion of water passing through fluted glass channels.

All the way to the top.

Connectivity and access are facilitated through the use of high-speed elevators, 6 of which service the first 27 floors, while 3 service the top 8 floors. Meanwhile 2 shuttle elevators service the basement, ground and mezzanine levels, and a 2000 kg capacity freight elevator serves all floors.

Convenient Parking.

Never think twice about finding a parking spot. The massive parking space that Podium offers includes 4 vast floors dedicated to vehicles, translating into 51,600 square feet of ease and convenience.
