Unique building opportunities and the willingness of sponsors to forge original paths to dynamic design options has made for four decades of success for RMJM and its clients in the Middle East.

While some firms have kept their distance from the on-going, geo-political challenges of the region, RMJM invested in the potential of the area by dedicating resources and clear reasoning to the situation. They took the long view and it has paid off.

Today, confidence in Middle East real estate market is on the rise. An example of this forward looking momentum is one of RMJM’s most recent activities, the Capital Gate project in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Capturing global recognition is the landmark ‘Feature Tower’ an exclusively iconic building distinguished by a dramatic steel and glass facade with a striking organic form. Its cantilevered tea lounge and open air pool deck provide a unique perspective of the Abu Dhabi skyline.

In January 2010 this 35-story structure was recognized as the world’s furthest leaning man-made tower by the Guinness Book of World Records. Structurally, this challenging building sits on an intensive distribution of 490 piles which have been drilled 30 meters underground to accommodate the gravitational, wind and seismic forces caused by the distinctive lean of the building.

The ‘Feature Tower’ is just one stunning example of RMJM’s design and in-house engineering capabilities that have been transforming the cityscapes of the Middle East since the 1970’s.

RMJM’s dedication to the region as a dependable and forward thinking design and building resource positions them as a preferred choice for developers in the Middle East. And they are proud to be part of a creative environment that has contributed to structures that are being celebrated as global centerpieces.
