MIRAI by Nirman

Mirai by Nirman is setting a new standard in Dhaka’s major business district: an international-grade office high-rise, standing 138 metres tall across 30 floors and a GFA of 36,000 sqm.

Nirman International

The name ‘Mirai’ is Japanese for ‘future’ – and this stunning new development is defining the future identity of the district.

The tower includes modern office facilities, a high-class restaurant & cafeteria, car showrooms, a rooftop swimming pool for CEO use, and below ground parking. All enriched by six ambitious roof gardens, boosting sustainability and wellbeing alike.

On this project, key objectives included promoting innovative construction methods, optimizing materials through wind tunnel testing, while maintaining sustainability and delivering an enhanced experience. From the lush green roof garden to high-performance double-glazed unitized glass facades, no detail has been overlooked.  

ARCO’s vision was of a bespoke building shape, enabling stunning views over the Gulshan Lake. To create a strong, striking identity, the development uses a streamlined material palette of high-quality glass curtain walls, copper look soffits, and flourishing vegetation.

Nirman International – a Dhaka-based, family-owned property development, consulting and construction business – engaged ARCO in 2018 to develop the high-rise from concept to detail design. ARCO adopts a wide range of roles including lead architect, interior designer, landscape designer, design manager to BIM coordinator. ARCO is also part of a multidisciplinary design team with leading engineers from Meinhardt (Thailand) Ltd. and other consultants and suppliers from over 15 countries.

“It is our passion to provide high quality office space to serve the needs of the international and local companies operating in Dhaka. We set the bar high in terms of quality, safety, transparency, and sustainability. As a renowned building company, we have the know-how to reach to a higher level and make sure that the office tower will be up to mark with the latest international requirements.” – Rahat Kamal, MD, Nirman International Ltd.
