Image: how The Galleries normally looks at night.
The Galleries at Downtown Jebel Ali will be in darkness for 60 hours this weekend as developer Limitless turns off lights and LED screens from Thursday night until Sunday morning in support of Earth Hour.
More than 600 lights and four giant digital screens at Limitless’ flagship project will be off from 7pm on Thursday until 7am on Sunday as part of the company’s commitment to energy conservation and environmental sustainability.
Limitless also urges its growing number of commercial and retail tenants at The Galleries to take part by closing down lights in individual offices and shops for the same number of hours.
Bahaa Abouhatab, Project Director at The Galleries, says: “Earth Hour is a fantastic worldwide initiative that encourages people to turn off lights for at least 60 minutes. But the Galleries will be in darkness for 60 hours, right through the weekend, as part of our ongoing commitment to environmental awareness and sustainability.”
The Galleries at Downtown Jebel Ali uses low-energy lights throughout its A-grade office towers and its 20,000 square metre landscaped plaza. Thanks to a number of energy-saving and waste management initiatives at The Galleries, the company has cut consumption year on-year despite a higher number of tenants occupying the buildings.
Limitless is also encouraging its employees to support Earth Hour by turning off lights at home for at least 60 minutes this weekend.
