On completion, the five-storey building will span an area of 19,000 square metres and host 4,000 square metres of office space comprising trade promotion offices, shops, and building facilities restaurants, cafes, a modern gym and smart parking facilities with a capacity of 330 cars.

The new structure is designed to meet the LEED Platinum certification with over 40 per cent of its energy requirements to be furnished by clean sources.

The expansion project will underpin the Chamber’s efforts to meet the needs of the emirate’s business community, and add to the organisation’s achievements in green building and sustainability.

After being the first existing building in the region to achieve LEED certification in 2009, Dubai Chamber earned LEED Platinum Certification for its headquarters in 2014.

The Chamber also invested Dhs5.4m in the University of Dubai, which in 2019 became the first LEED certified net-zero energy building in the region.
