Dubai is a city known around the world for its ambitious and epic structures – from the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, to the Palm Jumeirah, a man-made archipelago of hotels, resorts and residences.
Breaking records and reaching firsts hasn’t stopped the city from expanding as new developments pop up every year.
Dubai Plan 2040, a comprehensive plan for sustainable urban development, estimates that around 500,000 new units will be built in the city over the next two decades to accommodate the growing population.
According to a study by CORE, the market saw growth of almost 36,000 new units last year. Unlike other parts of the world where extreme housing shortages have resulted in unaffordable prices, Dubai’s ever-expanding supply has kept high prices in check with new developments such as those listed below.
New residential buildings are delivered consistently and quickly, but the new buildings are by no means commonplace. Instead, they are a continuation of Dubai’s legacy as a city of spectacular buildings.
Take a look at these new stunning developments in Dubai:
Atlantis The Royal Residences on Palm Jumeirah
Contrary to the mythology of its namesake, Atlantis the Royal Residences is not difficult to find – daring architecture and a prime location on the palm crescent have already made this new development an iconic landmark that immediately catches the eye.
While residences come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from two to five bedrooms, all offer impeccable interiors, chic style, and world-class views.
But life at Atlantis the Royal is much more than just extravagant living and stylish design – residents will also lead an opulent lifestyle with luxurious resort amenities and experiences.
Lovers of fine dining will feel at home in the Atlantis with its gourmet restaurants under the direction of Gordon Ramsay, Jose Andres and Heston Blumenthal.
Bathing opportunities are plentiful with access to private beaches and pools, including the Sky Pool, a 90 meter high infinity pool with plenty of space to lounge and relax.
Residence 22 in Business Bay
Located right next to Dubai’s vibrant downtown district, Residence 22 offers a typical Dubai lifestyle with one of the most impressive cities in the world right on your doorstep.
With a design that seamlessly blends the sophistication of a five-star hotel with the privacy and convenience of a gated community, this new development enables residents to enjoy the amenities of a resort while having their own quiet retreat.
The suites have floor-to-ceiling windows that provide warm natural sunlight and enhance the beauty of the skyline and the waterfront.
Basic services include valet parking, security, and 24-hour concierge with options for additional luxury services such as butlers, babysitting, and personal chefs.
IL Primo in the opera district of Dubai
IL Primo stands amid the beauty of the Opera District and is ready to be a dazzling addition to the brilliant skyscrapers that make up the Dubai skyline.
The 77-story building offers elegant four to five bedroom penthouses with spacious living and panoramic city views that give these residences a breathability that is not often found in big city life.
Facilities include a state-of-the-art fitness room, cigar lounge and cinema.
IL Primo’s spectacular location allows residents easy access to Dubai’s most attractive sights and locations, such as the Dubai Opera, Burj Khalifa and Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard with fine restaurants, trendy bars and luxury shopping. What’s more, thanks to its proximity to the Dubai Metro and the main roads, the whole city is within easy reach.
