UAE developer Binghatti has joined hands with top watchmaking and jewellery brand Jacob & Company to build its ultra-luxury skyscraper in Dubai – Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences.
Uniting their rich heritage and iconic architectural and horological codes, the two power brands are eyeing the record for the world’s tallest residential structure with this new venture, according to Binghatti.
The 100-storey tower will offer lavish two- and three-bedroom residences in the heart of Dubai’s Business Bay. The top of Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences hosts five of the most luxurious and exclusive penthouses in Dubai, the developer stated.
Unveiling the project, CEO Muhammad Binghatti said: “Today marks the significant partnership of two like-minded brands, both on an ever-striving pursuit of absolute elegance.
“Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences coins a new term in upper-crust real estate: hypertower. Opening a new era in uber-luxury living, this unparalleled skyscraper aims to set a record as one of the tallest residential constructions in the world.”
Multiple levels have been dedicated to such amenities as an infinity pool overlooking the entire Dubai skyline, a luxury spa and a gymnasium.
“What we have done in real estate, by creating a brand through a distinct design philosophy and architectural identity is very similar to what Jacob & Co has done in the world of jewellery and horology”, said Binghatti on its partner.
Drawing inspiration from horological and high jewellery aesthetics, Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences’ design is reminiscent of the baguette-cut gems Jacob & Co is renowned for. Entry-level residences will consist of two collections: The Sapphire Suite Collection consisting of two-bedroom residential units, and The Emerald Suite Collection comprising three-bedroom units.
“The diamond-shaped spires sitting at the peak of the tower are reminiscent of an actual crown, an ornament of unique finesse inspired by the design of Jacob & Co’s finely cut gems. This is the apex of the luxury narrative in this evocative construction, a signature feature that add further grandeur to the city’s skyline,” he added.
“Inspired from our high watchmaking collections, these penthouses will consist of three types, each named after our flagship Jacob & Co timepieces – Fleurs De Jardin, Astronomia and Billionaire,” said Jacob Arabo, the Chairman and Creative Director of Jacob & Co. “The interior design of the penthouse collection will be directly inspired by their unique aesthetics.”
According to him, the hypertower is also home to an exclusive private club, featuring an extensive infinity pool.
