Dubai developer Omniyat Properties is preparing to unveil one of the final masterpieces designed by the Iraqiborn architect, Dame Zaha Hadid, a little over a year since her death in March 2016.
Located in Business Bay, the aptly named ‘The Opus’ is in the final throws of construction and is set to open this summer. All evidence points to the building becoming an instant icon when it does.
The venue will be home to the region’s first ME by Meliá hotel, luxury residences, commercial office space, a number of food and beveredge outlets and a nightclub.
Media and VIP guests were given a sneak peek of the venue on a hard had tour last month. The tour party experienced a showroom floor layout including renderings of how the finished venues and amenities will look.

The Opus, scheduled for completion this summer, will be the next iconic building in Dubai’s cityscape, instantly recognisable for the organic void at its heart, and we have the late Dame Zaha Hadid to thank for its truly unique design.”
The Opus will be aligned with Omniyat’s vision of treating each project as if it were a unique work of art, showcasing once more that we are the pioneers of producing inimitable luxury lifestyle experiences
“The Opus will be aligned with Omniyat’s vision of treating each project as if it were a unique work of art, showcasing once more that we are the pioneers of producing inimitable luxury lifestyle experiences. Seeing the work today gives me confidence that the finished project will meet all the highest expectations of our partners, our residential and commercial tenants and our future hotel guests.”
