The four towers which make up Damac Towers by Paramount are brought together with a multi level plaza, offering Paramount themed food & beverage concepts, meeting and events facilities, a screening room, wellness and fitness centres, swimming pools, kids club, and retail.

One tower will comprise the Paramount Hotel with the remaining three towers housing the Damac Maison - Paramount co-branded serviced Hotel Residences.
