The full range of in-built kitchen appliances, including dishwasher, double-door refrigerator with freezer, electric hob, oven and washing machine and dryer, are by Electrolux.

  • All bathrooms have rainfall showers and furnishings by Italian brand Gessi, while the floors of each apartment are finished with Italian porcelain ceramic tiles by Lea.

  • The apartments are available as short-term rentals or residences.

  • The state-of-the-art gym and fitness facilities are equipped with the latest workout machines by leading Italian brand Technogym.

  • There are two infinity pools at a height of 325m on the 75th floor roof top providing panoramic views over the city.

  • A sky lobby on the 71st floor provides panoramic views of Downtown Dubai.

  • The tower’s design is inspired by classic Oriel architecture, with windows that protrude from the main wall of the building. In Arab architecture this takes the form of ‘mashrabiya’; windows and balconies that project from the street-front of a house to provide an area in which women could peer out and see the activities below while remaining invisible.

  • Here the Oriel units are rotated by 45 degrees in four different angles to ensure the best views from across all areas of the building.

  • In The Residences, half of all owners are Chinese, 15% are Emiratis, 12% Saudis, 8% Indians, and the remaining 15% a mix of other nationals.
