DMCC hands over Almas Tower

The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre took another step towards establishing a diamond industry cluster in Dubai, with the handover of offices in the Almas Tower to its diamond sector members. Located within the upcoming Jumeirah Lakes Towers development, the 65-floor Almas Tower is DMCC’s flagship tower, built to cater to the specific needs of the diamond industry.
DMCC handed over the keys to member companies occupying levels 3-20 of Almas Tower, during a ceremony held Jan. 8 at Monarch Hotel in Dubai. The clients can now complete the individual fit outs of their offices before they move in.
