Leading Dubai developer Emaar and WSP, one of the world's leading professional services consulting firms, have jointly announced the topping out of the over 340-m-tall Il Primo Tower’ in Dubai Opera District.

Situated on the north side of the Opera House between The Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa, the project comprises a 77-storey structure with podium and six levels of basement and parking.

The units are masterfully crafted with views of the iconic structures of the city and come with an array of amenities and luxuries such as marble floors, ambient lighting, and modern art. VVIPs can opt for extra large units which offer sweeping views and floor-to-ceiling windows, said the statement from Emaar.

With proximity to major roads and the Dubai Metro, the iconic tower offers residents easy access to the whole city, it added.
