Almas Tower (Arabic: برج الماس Diamond Tower) is a 68-storey, 360 m (1,180 ft), supertall skyscraper in the Jumeirah Lake Towers Free Zone of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Construction of the office building began in early 2005 and was completed in 2009 with the installation of some remaining cladding panels at the top of The Tower. The building was topped out in 2008, and became the tallest building in Dubai until 2010 when it was surpassed by Burj Khalifa.
The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), the developer of the tower, was the first to move in. The DMCC moved its corporate offices along with the Dubai Diamond Exchange to the unfinished tower on 15 November 2008. Almas Tower now houses facilities that provide a wide range of services for the region’s diamond, coloured gemstones and pearls industry. Along with the Dubai Diamond Exchange, these include the Dubai Gems Club, the Dubai Pearl Exchange, the Kimberley Process Certification offices and access to secure transportation agencies such as Brinks and Transguard, in addition to networking and meeting rooms. Diamond cutting and exchange take place at the tower. Due to the type of transactions taking place at the tower, high security is installed. Almas tower ranked 8th in the 2009 Emporis Skyscraper Awards.
