The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) in collaboration with Brookfield Multiplex will construct the One JLT, a glass box-style building at the centre of the DMCC Free Zone, to facilitate Dubai as the global gateway for commodity trade.

Forming an important part of the Free Zone’s previously announced strategy, the new building will house large regional and multinational companies.

Upon completion, the single-owner commercial space will include 12 levels and a ground floor with 23,400m² net leasable area (NLA).

The building will include one of the highest ratio of parking spaces to NLA in Dubai.

in a bid to set a global standard in efficiency, One JLT will be constructed according to Gold LEED standards.

Part of DMCC’s strategy, the One JLT will provide various benefits to the companies such as single ownership, closeness to metro stations, cargo facilities, and ports and airports, connecting to 140 destinations.

In the words of Ahmed Bin Sulayem, executive chairman of DMCC, One JLT will bridge the gap in the marketplace by creating office space for large regional and multinational companies.

According to Matthew Lomax, director of property at DMCC, One JLT will provide the opportunity to the companies to house their entire teams in space-efficient, high-end commercial space in a prime Dubai location managed by a single owner.
