Off-Site ProgramsA: Constructing an Inter-Tower Skybridge Over a Highway

23 October 2018
8:30 AM – 5:30 PM

Urban land will only become scarcer, and ever-more creative approaches will be necessary in order to return projects of lasting value and iconic power. Such is the case at One Za’abeel, where the development lot is split by an elevated highway. The solution – a dramatic multi-story skybridge linking two substantial towers together, over the highway, more than 25 stories in the air, forming a distinctive gateway and unifying the project as a whole. This conceptually simple diagram is not simple to execute in construction – meet the practitioners who are making it happen.
