About JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai Tower 2

The Emirates Park Towers represent a twin-tower hotel complex sitting on an “L”-shaped plot in Dubai between the Sheikh Zayed Road to the west and Business Bay to the east. This plot will adjoin a future extension of the Dubai Creek, with a waterside promenade on the south side. Tower 1 was completed in 2012, while Tower 2 completed in 2013, and was the tallest worldwide skyscraper completion of that year.

The design of Emirates Park Towers is inspired by the date tree, a recognized symbol of Arab culture. The faceted appearance of the tree’s trunk is reflected in the plan of the guest floors. The balconies are extruded out to suggest a layered bark pattern. The building is an example of Expressionist architecture, in which the structure itself resembles a distorted shape.

The main structural core is placed in the middle of the plan. The central core and external shear walls are connected by outriggers to form the lateral load resisting systems. The shear walls are supported on transfer girders, which are then supported by core walls and peripheral columns. The towers are oriented intentionally for minimal peak thermal load and wind pressure, and feature vertical fins that act as shading devices.

The towers comprise 66 guest floors, eight service levels, and six intermediate levels. The off-axis orientation of the towers and the peripherally located hotel rooms maximize guests’ access to views of the nearby scenery, including the Arabian Gulf, Safa Park, and the Burj Kalifa. The podium provides a central nest of activity for the towers: with 18 restaurants and bars, an extensive business center with conference halls and meeting rooms, a banquet hall, spa and health club, as well as retail outlets, a swimming pool, and a gymnasium.
