Dubai developers aim for a new world record.
In Dubai, they are going to build the tallest residential building in the world – a 112-story “hypertower” called Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences, according to the developer's website. Thus, the record of Central Park Tower, 472-meter residential skyscraper in New York, can be broken.
The building called Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences is the result of a collaboration between Emirati property developer Binghatti and watch brand Jacob & Co.
The authors of the project decorated the skyscraper with a “crown” of diamond-shaped spiers to give it even more grandeur and scope. The building is planned to be built in the heart of Dubai's most famous financial district, Business Bay.
“The proposed project includes over 100 floors of luxurious two and three bedroom residences. This hypertower also houses a dedicated concierge team offering services such as daycare, bodyguards, chauffeurs and personal chefs,” the developer said in a statement.
At the top of the skyscraper will be “the five most luxurious and exclusive penthouses in Dubai”.
“Soaring on top of the world, they offer limitless views of the city's skyline, including the city center and the Dubai waterway. Inspired by our haute horlogerie collections, these penthouses will consist of three types, each named after our flagship Jacob & Co – Fleurs De Jardin, Astronomia and Billionaire. The interior design of the penthouse collection will be directly inspired by their unique aesthetic. As the name suggests, the billionaire penthouse is the jewel of the hypertower in the crown,” said chairman and creative director Jacob & Co Jacob Arabo.
According to Binghatti CEO and Head of Architecture Muhammad Binghatti, the two building-planning brands are “born from a pure desire to achieve something that breaks boundaries.”
“That what Binghatti has done in real estate by building a brand with a distinct design philosophy and architectural identity is very similar to what Jac has done ob& Co in the world of jewelery and watchmaking”.
No opening date for Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences has been announced at this time.
