The Citadel Tower is one of the prestigious projects that will be home to major players in the corporate world. It allows businesses to function optimally with all necessary infrastructure amenities. The tower is fully glazed and boasts a prominently curved façade that tapers on the corners to become a box frame. The curve allows for more expansive views of the canal and business bay. The podium is higher than its neighbors, offering six floors of parking. The project was designed in a core and shell scheme to allow for maximum customization by owners and leasers. A unique feature of the interior is the transparent elevator that runs through the building. The ground floor of the building reinforces the curves with a multi-layer curved relief extended outward from the podium. The aesthetic is accentuated in the interior as users are met with a vast double-height space. The towers functionality combined with its uniquely characterized profile contributes to the diverse range of the Business Bay skyline.
