Project Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Baynunah Tower

Three towers in one

Sector: Buildings

Baynunah Tower, built by BESIX, consists of three wing towers rising to 163 meters. This prestigious apartment building also includes a hotel, sports facilities, six parking levels – and a staggering amount of marble and granite.

A trio of elegance

In the centre of the UAE’s largest emirate, BESIX built a tower with multiple facets: an elegant union of three towers, structured around a cylindrical core with space for lifts and water tanks, and containing 25, 31 and 37 floors respectively. At the time of its completion, it was the region’s tallest tower and its first built in high-strength concrete (micro-silicates).


In addition to the hotel, the tower comprises residential apartments, suites, parking garages and a fitness centre with pool. The ground floor opens onto a shopping mall. The top of the building hosts a telecommunications centre, while an adjoining building houses the management offices.

This tower offers a strong a good testimony to the dynamism of BESIX and its willingness to innovate and push the limits of its expertise.

Concrete, marble and granite

The tower’s concrete structure was built on a foundation of drilled reinforced concrete piles. The royal blue glass curtain wall façades offer superb views of the sea and the city of Abu Dhabi. Decorated with arabesque motifs, the concrete façades of the three outer cylinders contain the emergency stairs and the exterior lifts. Floors and wall coverings inside the apartments and suites make heavy use of marble and high-quality granite.
