Dubai Is Once Again Building Extremely Tall Structures for World Records

Burj Binghatti

The Burj Binghatti Project Seeks To Build The World’s Tallest Residence, And CIEL Is Currently Building A Hotel.

In the real estate market in Dubai, lofty heights are back in vogue. In a joint venture with the upscale watch company Jacob & Co., the developer Burj Binghatti a week before confirmed its plans to build the tallest all-residential skyscraper in the world in Business Bay. The proposed building’s height has not been disclose. However, it will undoubtedly surpass the height of the Central Park tower and seize the record for itself.

Dubai’s upcoming towers aim to reach new heights. But they will not just be residential. The 365-meter-tall CIEL Tower in Dubai Marina. Which will be the tallest hotel-only building in the world, will not open for another year or so. (The distinction is crucial because Burj Khalifa, which houses hotels, residences, and offices, is still by a wide margin the tallest building.)

Dubai is already home to some of the world’s tallest hotel structures. Including the Gevora on Shaikh Zayed Road, which is the tallest building at the moment. In the form of the JW Marriott Marquis, the second-tallest building in the entire world.

So, Will The City And Incoming Visitors Be Able To Handle More Tall Buildings?

Ask Knight Frank consulting partner and Head of Middle East Research Faisal Durrani, and he will say without a doubt. “The emirate’s high aspirations have resulted in one of the most striking skylines in the entire world. It is not surprising that the best hotel room views frequently command a premium, with skyline and sea views frequently being the most highly sought-after. Ever taller buildings are competing for pole position in the skyline.”

Without a doubt, Dubai’s tall buildings contribute to the city’s appeal on a global scale. With consistently among the highest hotel occupancy rates in the world. These attractions have contributed to making it one of the most popular cities. Despite Dubai having over 140,000 hotel keys—more than London or New York—and another 30,000 planned, Durrani continued.

Dubai already has a good understanding of how to build hotels that are nothing short of spectacular and generate a constant buzz around them. The Burj Al Arab, the city’s second-most-Instagrammed building, serves as proof.

Currently, the city’s average daily room rate is around Dh700 per square foot. Rates at ultra-luxurious low-rise beach resorts like Jumeirah’s Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, and Bvlgari hotels are 8–10 times higher than those in the city. This shows that while brand, location, and features are important, height and views may have an impact on overnight rates.

  • Hotel Gevora is 356 metres away.

In Dubai, a desirable vertical landscape is formed by numerous extremely tall hotel properties. These include naming a few, the Burj Al Arab, Gevora Hotel, JW Marriott Marquis, SLS Dubai Hotel and Residences, Rose Rayhaan by Rotana Dubai, and Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel.

According to Trevor Hardwick, Chief Operating Officer at Select Group, vertical structures can offer all visitors the advantages of stunning vistas. In densely populated areas or areas where views are desired but the land is scarce.

Since its opening, Jumeirah Living Marina Gate by Select Group has consistently had high occupancy rates. A “self-contained community” guarantees visitors’ desired levels of privacy and unhindered access to Dubai Marina.

A true global landmark, it features one of the tallest grand atriums in the world. A man-made beach, an Outdoor pool, and a sundeck with two swimming pools and locations for outstanding dining. In addition to using a shuttle, guests can fly in or drive a Rolls-Royce to get to the hotel.
