The 34-storey Fairmont building located on Dubai's Shaikh Zayed Road is a state-of-the-art, hotel property which also houses 115 two- and three-bedroom upscale apartments and four office floors, in addition to the 394-room luxury business hotel, according to vice president and general manager, Michael Kaile.
The leasing of the apartments and office units has been managed in alliance with Dubai-based property management company, Asteco.
"Tenant response has been encouraging, with much of the 106,000 square feet of office space already earmarked for lease," he said.
Kaile said that apartment leasing, too, has been buoyant with more than half the units contracted.
The apartments have sea views and share a dedicated lobby and elevator access with office tenants - separate from the main hotel reception and public guest areas. All apartment contracts include health club & spa memberships, and access to room service, laundry and other traditional hotel guest services.
In addition, Cafe-Deli, located on the building's ground floor, is designed to offer deli and sundry retail facilities to tenants.
The Fairmont Dubai became the newest entrant to the emirate's five-star hotel scene when it opened last month.
The hotel displays a wealth of innovative concepts setting new standards in restaurant and business facilities.
These include the signature Spectrum on One multi-menu restaurant showcasing eight different cuisines; Cascades in the 135-metre atrium with a spectacular River of Light display; and The Exchange - the 2nd floor business centre incorporating a stylish grill restaurant and cigar bar as well as private work-stations, meeting rooms and every facility for communications on the move. The mufti-purpose complex is located in Dubai's burgeoning business district, opposite the emirate's World Trade Centre, exhibition halls and the area earmarked for construction of a world-standard convention centre, scheduled for completion in 2003. Pedestrian access to the exhibition and convention complex will be provided by a walkway - The Fairmont Walkway - over the Shaikh Zayed Road, a bonus for Fairmont tenants, hotel guests and Dubai residents. It is the first such overhead crossing to open across the busy highway.
