Renowned for its opulence and extravagance, Dubai is a cosmopolitan and commercial city which is continually striving to enhance its position as one of the most influential business and tourism hubs in the world.
Boasting an array of breathtaking buildings, look no further than the city’s skyline for architectural achievements to amaze and astound.
This feat of engineering is not simply a skyscraper on a stellar scale. It’s the tallest architectural wonder in the world. Boasting a wealth of record-breaking facts and figures, Burj Khalifa is both an architectural achievement and a visionary symbol of progress in the prosperous Middle East.
Home to the highest outdoor observation deck in the world, visitors to the building can enjoy breathtaking views encompassing both downtown Dubai and offshore developments. With a fine dining restaurant and a recreation annex, the building also boasts both corporate residences and private apartments.
Home to the infamous Armani Hotel, the Burj Khalifa plays host to the only hotel in the world to be designed and developed by Giorgio Armani himself. This feat of engineering is a shining symbol of progress and passion and a celebration of Dubai’s rapid development from a city of regional to global importance.
Another record-breaking building is Dubai’s Princess Tower. Recognised as the world’s tallest residential building, the Tower boasts breathtaking views of the Marina and Palm Jumeirah. With over 700 luxury apartments, the Princess Tower is a stellar skyscraper which dominates Dubai’s impressive skyline – a feat which is far from easy!
With a choice of both executive and penthouse apartments, Princess Tower provides the finest luxury living. Surrounded by world-renowned luxury hotels, malls and an abundance of entertainment opportunities, this residential building combines the excitement of modern living with the serenity of living near the sea.
With both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, residents can relax or head to the building’s gymnasium to unwind. A play area for children, private parking and shared recreational facilities ensure residents have everything they need to enjoy luxury modern living in a global and contemporary city.
Just pipped to the post by the Princess Tower, 23 Marina was previously the world’s tallest all-residential skyscraper. Taking a more than commendable second place in the record-breaking stakes, 23 Marina is a 90-storey residential building.
This breathtaking feat of architecture boasts spectacular views from each and every apartment. With panoramic views of azure seas and the Jumeirah Palm Islands, properties in 23 Marina are part of one of the world’s most exclusive waterfront developments. This prime residential location combines contemporary and vibrant urban living with the laidback appeal of a beachside setting.
With an array of residential amenities, 23 Marina boasts high-class, contemporary living. The Dubai Marina remains one of the city’s most coveted residential locations and this example of outstanding engineering boasts a prime position in the city’s skyline.
