DUBAI, UAE, October 26, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Lee Wiggins and GPD Investments recently developed a new multi-use building complex in the heart of downtown Dubai. The complex, known as Empire Heights, stands in the form of two sixteen story twin towers. Empire Heights will house a variety of different businesses, with plans for both storefront vendors and corporate office space. Lee Wiggins and his team are very proud of the development and are excited to see their hard work come to fruition.
"Empire Heights has been a long time in the making, so we are excited to finally see people start moving in and using the space," said GPD Investments' Lee Wiggins. "We as a company, and me personally, have put a lot of time, work, and effort into this project."
GPD Investments is a successful European property investment and development group. The company, established by Lee Wiggins, has corporate offices in Dubai, London, and Geneva. In 2008, GPD Investments was voted one of the Top 100 Companies in the Middle East. The Empire Heights projects is fully funded and backed by Barclays Bank and Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait. Lee Wiggins noted that the main contractor was Dubai Civil Engineering LLC, with the appointed project and cost managers being Currie and Brown Ltd. Turner and Townsend acted for the lenders.
"The success of Empire Heights is no doubt a testament to a lot of different people and companies. We handpicked a group of successful and talented agencies to make our dream a reality," said Lee Wiggins.
As mentioned, Lee Wiggins and company designed Empire Heights as a multi-use, flex development. The two towers feature dedicated office space, as well as retail, restaurant, parking, and common areas. The office space ranges from 1,381 square feet to 2,135 square feet per unit. Lee Wiggins said: "The average floor plan is laid out in an elliptical shape with six units on each floor. The units are grouped around a central core which eliminates as much waste space as possible. It's a practical design." Lee Wiggins tried to think of everything.
Retail spaces, running around the podium of the building, range from 642 to 2,993 square feet in size. The spaces are beautifully designed for optimal street front visibility in busy downtown Dubai. Lee Wiggins
also notes that there is a large captive audience. "If I'm a business owner with one of these spaces, I feel like I'm already ahead of the game. I've got somewhere between 1600 and 2000 people already in the building each day. I don't even have to bring them in, they're here."
and GPD Investments are extremely excited about their Empire Heights project. They believe it not only provides businesses with premier, top-of-the-line office and retail space, but it also goes a long way in adding to the already magnificent Dubai skyline. Take Lee Wiggins at his word when he says, "It doesn't get much better than this. If you want to make the statement that your company is ready to compete with the best of the best, make Empire Heights your home."About
