2006-02-04

Al Jaber Group today announced that its 300 million dirham ‘Media One’ project currently under construction has reached its fifth floor and will be completed by March 2007.

United Arab Emirates: Saturday, February 04 – 2006 — Media One, which is located at the main entrance of the Dubai Media City (DMC) opposite the Dubai Marina, is a forty floor mixed use property with a built up area of 75,371 square meters comprising a hotel and commercial office space.

‘Our concept of Media One was developed to accommodate corporate clientele visiting Dubai to do business at the Media City and the surrounding areas,’ said Obeid Al Jaber, Chairman of the Al Jaber Group.

‘Designed and developed to suite business executives, the young at heart trend setters who represent the next generation of business influencers, Media One will offer the highest quality standards in a chic and modern business environment.’

Twenty of the forty floors will consist of a 267 room hotel with six restaurant outlets, a gym, a swimming pool, a business centre and one floor made up entirely of high end meeting rooms fully equipped with the latest technologies and comfortable surroundings.

Media One will direct its service to cater for its immediate population at Dubai Media City as well as the nearby communities. Top notch technology access and connectivity are a given, where high speed wireless is accessible in all public areas of the hotel.

The hotel comprises standard rooms, junior and executive suites, with an ‘all day dining room,’ four speciality restaurants, a chic lounge bar and retail space on the ground floor. On entering – a cozy lobby area, stylish in décor and modern in ambiance – hotel residents and commercial tenants will experience a vibrant world that uplifts and stimulates with its open spaces, styled furniture and efficient staff creating a relaxed but yet exciting setting.

Offices at Media One are on the upper levels of the building from the 21st to the 40th floors. Ample parking is available where one basement floor and seven podiums are custom built for business executives to utilise. The offices can be accessed through a separate entrance on the ground floor that connects to the hotel lobby.

The Al Jaber Group had revealed that the iconic joint venture project Between the Bridges (BTB) – a complex comprising a Five Star hotel, luxury villas and executive apartments – is currently under construction in Abu Dhabi. The AED 800 million project was named ‘Between the Bridges’ due to the fact that it lies on a 900 meter stretch between the Al-Maqtaa and Al Musafah bridges that lead onto the island of Abu Dhabi, with the first phase earmarked for completion in February 2007.
