Located in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), the precinct features 990,000 square feet of Grade A office space alongside 160,000 square feet of retail amenities including private members club, The Arts Club, a chef-driven food hall, health and fitness club, and a community hub.

The building fitted with column free floorplates and an internal planning grid, enables efficient workplace design, providing for a variety of office layouts that can adapt as businesses evolve.

Régis Burger, head of Middle East and Africa and chairman of Julius Baer (Middle East) Ltd said; “We at Julius Baer are very proud of our long standing presence in the DIFC, established over 15 years ago. The UAE continues to be a strategic core market for us and the relocation to a prominent address such as ICD Brookfield Place will support us in further cementing our commitment to the country.”

Features of the base build, such as the air filteration system which increases fresh air by 30 per cent, coupled with UV air treatment, helps protect against the spread of infection.
