API Commercial IV
Located at the intersection of two major roads in Dubai, this L-shaped project features a large, sunny entryway leading to a unique mix of boutique offices and retail in the predominantly residential Jumeirah community. Offices are located on the internal part of the upper floors, with anchor shops or banks at both ends of the project. Retail and covered parking occupy the majority of the ground floor, with one basement floor providing the majority of the required parking spaces.
Optimum building orientation, locally produced building materials with recycled content, and careful glazing strategies promote a sustainable working and shopping environment. Additionally, south-facing sunscreens filter daylight, thus reducing energy loads by up to 30 percent. API IV gracefully meets the challenges of a mixed use program with acute safety and security requirements, demanding environmental conditions, and rigorous cost management.
