Nine residential towers delivered in two phases

The Residences Phases 1 & 2 offer the inhabitants of Downtown Burj Khalifa a dynamic skyline and the luxury of a high-rise suburb within. The development is located at just a stone’s throw from the sights and sounds of Dubai, positioned right by the world’s tallest building and the world’s largest shopping mall.

The Residences were constructed and released to the market in two phases. The first, The Residences Phase 1, was completed in 2005. It boasts a total of 743 suites, housed in six individual residential high rise towers and a four-storey podium. Along with villa accommodation, the podiums provide car parking, amenities areas for fitness and guest accommodation. It also features over 20 retail outlets and fully landscaped podium roofs incorporating swimming pools and recreational areas that cater for the leisure time of residents.

The second phase, The Residences Phase 2, completed in 2007, consists of an additional three residential towers and podium structure featuring the same design elements as The Residences Phase 1. To encourage visual interest, the towers tip the skyline at varying heights, dashing between 24 to 41 levels.

Interior design options included the Andalucia scheme, with its use of traditional Islamic patterns and details and the Metropolitan, with modern fittings and design reflecting the contemporary ambiance now emanating from the city.

Multiplex was able to successfully construct an option for residents seeking a contemporary apartment lifestyle, which respected the roots of the city as well as heralding the trends of its progressive future.
