Emaar Properties has unveiled one of Dubai's most spectacular residential complexes, The Mansion at Burj Dubai. An architectural masterpiece, its unique value proposition is that all homes within the 60-storey tower open to direct views of Burj Dubai, the world's tallest building, and the magnificent fountain on Burj Dubai Lake.
The Mansion at Burj Dubai is located on the Burj Dubai Boulevard and lakefront with private access and security to create an exclusive neighbourhood choice for discerning buyers. A truly luxury residential complex with in-tower retail options, The Mansion at Burj Dubai has been designed by the renowned international architect Adrian Smith, the designer of Burj Dubai, the world's tallest building, and will feature spacious, elegantly designed studios, and one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.
Views of Burj Dubai are assured from all living rooms with the balconies and terraces carefully aligned to give unparalleled views of Downtown Burj Dubai. The fountain in Burj Dubai Lake, a stellar water, light and music spectacle, can be watched from the convenience of their homes, witnessing the colourful splash of water jets in perfectly choreographed rhythmic patterns.
Dubai's complement to the world's elegant water fountains, the fountain is about 25 per cent larger than The Fountains at Bellagio in Las Vegas in area and features powerful water nozzles shooting water sprays to heights of over 500 ft, and over 6,600 lights & 50 colour projectors creating a vibrant visual spectrum.
At The Mansion at Burj Dubai, customers can also select from a handful of uniquely designed duplex units with double volume spaces. Large terrace units that integrate with the majestic shape of the tower sit atop the building. On the 58th storey, is a stunning penthouse unit with two large terraces - a perfect place for entertaining. The Mansion will also feature an international restaurant in its lobby that opens directly to magnificent views of the fountain.
Mr. Saif Al Mansoori, Sales Director, Emaar Properties, said: "The Mansion at Burj Dubai will be one of the crowning residential projects in Downtown Burj Dubai. It blends three elements of appeal: A central location within Downtown Burj Dubai; spectacular views of Burj Dubai and the fountain in Burj Dubai Lake; and a rich spread of retail and lifestyle amenities. The Mansion at Burj Dubai, true to its name, is conceptualized and designed to epitomize sheer luxury."
He added: "Dubai is a preferred investment destination for global investors. By offering a world-class residential project that is on par with any world-class development, The Mansion at Burj Dubai will appeal to the discerning buyers who value a distinctive residential address in the new heart of the city."
Mr. Adrian Smith said: "In designing The Mansion at Burj Dubai, the chief consideration was to create another aesthetic referral point within Downtown Burj Dubai, which complements the architectural appeal of Burj Dubai. The distinctive woven glass façade has been specifically conceptualized to maximize views, with the innovative design also allowing for reduction in energy consumption, thus building further on Dubai's Green Building vision."
He added: "The Mansion at Burj Dubai is not only a gateway between the commercial and residential zones in Downtown Burj Dubai, it is also an elegant work of architecture that has been designed in direct response to the surrounding design context. Its unique façade adopts a subtle, alternating pattern in the directionality of window units, which creates a dynamic woven texture. Vertical ribbons of stone will line the southern façade protecting the units from the harsh sun while allowing light to filter in."
Residents can look forward to a flurry of lifestyle amenities at the Burj Dubai Boulevard and revel in the shopping and leisure options at the nearby Dubai Mall, one of the world's largest shopping and entertainment destinations. Several retail outlets and F&B facilities will be showcased in the retail plaza within the tower.
The elegant interiors of The Mansion at Burj Dubai are complemented by convenient lifestyle features in the kitchens and bathrooms. A fully-equipped gym, business centre, multifunction areas for entertaining, and a pool & sundeck to relax are other features. Adding to their convenience, The Mansion at Burj Dubai will have a dedicated stop for the Burj Dubai Tram service.
Sale of homes at The Mansion at Burj Dubai will be held from June 14, 2008, at Downtown Living Sales Centre and Emaar's Abu Dhabi Sales Centre. Several financial institutions are offering easy home finance options.
Downtown Burj Dubai is the newest neighbourhood in Dubai with a strong community life already. The 500-acre project all has three hotels that are well-established, and Souk Al Bahar, a shopping mall featuring Arabesque architectural elements. The Burj Dubai Boulevard also hosts lifestyle activities periodically bringing together the Downtown Burj Dubai communities.
