About Rolex Tower
Rolex Tower sits amidst the exuberance that is the tall building development of Dubai's main thoroughfare, Sheikh Zayed Road. The building comes as a breath of fresh air among the crowd of towers all competing for attention. Its clean, well-detailed form rises in a quiet yet powerful way. The prismatic gleaming facade glows in the Dubai sun while the patterned ceramic frit adds depth and character. See Project Case Study
