Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences, the newest skyscraper in Dubai and so-called “hypertower,” is slated to become the world’s tallest residential structure in the world. The 100-storey structure is situated in Dubai’s Business Bay and was specifically constructed to set the record for being the tallest residential building.
“The skyscraper will feature the most lavish penthouses at the highest altitude of the hypertower,”the Binghatti Developers’ official Facebook page stated. “Our collaboration with Jacob & Co on this architectural tour-de-force reflects our commitment towards marking a globally groundbreaking feat for Binghatti,” it further said.
The luxury jewellery and watch company Jacob & Co has partnered with Binghatti Developers, a major player in the real estate industry, for the project.
The structure will surpass New York’s Central Park Tower, the tallest residential building in the world at 472.4 metres.
The Princess Tower, which is 414 metres tall, and 23 Marina, which is 392.75 metres high, are the other structures that fit into the same category, according to the Gulf News.
According to a New York Post report, the building has opulent two- and three-bedroom residences. A dedicated concierge team, offering a la carte services like daycare, a bodyguard, a chauffeur, and a private chef, was also mentioned in relation to the building.
The report added that the tower will house an “exclusive private club” with an infinity pool and a sizable lounge area.
“A true work of art that is set to redefine the entire history of the real estate industry and bring a new icon to Dubai’s skyline,” the Binghatti Developers wrote on their website as the construction work was about to start.
According to a Facebook post by Binghatti, 12000 people from all over the world attended the recent unveiling of the Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences.
