Stress has become a common phenomenon across the world and also in the UAE. A recent study by insurance firm Cigna found that close to 22 per cent of the country’s residents face “unmanageable levels of stress”.
With high-pressure work environments, there have been growing calls for residents to adopt healthier lifestyles and spend time doing things they love to reduce stress.
In a bid to offer tenants a positive work-life experience, Central Park Towers at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) provides amenities including a complimentary pop-up fitness studio as well as lifestyle events throughout the year. One of their annual events which is coming up next month is called Get To The Point – a vertical challenge for their office and residential tenants. It is an organised climb to the top floor of the office tower and ends with participants – including tenants and retailers – socialising together
From a health perspective, the building also hosts a branch of the popular global fitness brand Barry’s Boot Camp, which offers high intensity interval (HIIT) workout classes.
A joint venture between Dubai Asset Management (part of Dubai Holdings) and Deyaar, Central Park Towers is the largest single-owned office tower in DIFC. Located at the south end of DIFC, the tower has office space ranging from 1,000 sq ft to 28,000 sq ft.
In terms of parking, tenants are offered one space for every 500 sq ft and can purchase more spots for 50 per cent less than other buildings in DIFC. They also have three hours free parking for visitors.
The tower also offers a number of dining options as well as service retailers such as Spinneys, Printery, Bombay Shirt Company, Nina’s Foral boutique, FTA Tax Payer support center, Amir services, Leader Business Hub, EnVogue salons and Mokhtar beauty lounge.
The building will also be connected to the upcoming Gate Avenue project – which will have 200 dining, retail and entertainment options – via a bridge link.
