Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are sure to have heard of the wonder that is Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world. The iconic landmark is one of the most popular tourist spots around Dubai and incidentally, also a favourite among property buyers and tenants. This makes sense; why live in a regular building when you can live at the most sought-after, glamorous address in the world? We visited an apartment in Burj Khalifa to get the inside view and took a look at some of the best things about calling this iconic tower home. And let us tell you this: living in Burj Khalifa is so much more than just a Guinness-World-Record thing.
Views To Die For
Stating the obvious here, but it’s worth mentioning that this one’s our favourite thing about living in Burj Khalifa. Any apartment higher than the 20th floor in the UAE can give you amazing views. But only an apartment in Burj Khalifa gives you spectacular aerial views of the entire city. Not to mention the fact that the sky is (literally) the limit. The skyscraper scales up to 160 stories and stands tall; the height of Burj Khalifa is 828 metres. Levels 19 to 108 form The Residences component of the tower. So why limit yourself to views from the 20th floor, when an additional 88 floors are on the table?
To add to the appeal, the floor-to-ceiling windows in this Burj Khalifa apartment, listed by Marder’s Boutique Realty Dubai, make it so much more enticing. Imagine walking into your apartment and seeing all of Dubai sprawled in front of you. And can you imagine the view at night? Glittering Dubai city lights against the night sky – we cannot think of a better way to end your day.
Facilities That Are Fit For a King
Valet service, Jacuzzis and tennis courts – do we have your attention now? It is only natural that Burj Khalifa residents would enjoy the most luxurious facilities (because living in the tallest building in the world isn’t already awesome enough). But once we got into the specifics of the facilities that Burj Khalifa residents enjoy, we couldn’t help but be a little jealous. Take a look at some of these below:
- Valet parking
- Concierge service
- Tennis court
- Indoor/outdoor swimming pool
- Fitness centre
- Recreation room for gatherings & events
- 24 hours’ maintenance
- Business centre
- Communal gardens
Apartments In Burj Khalifa = What Dreams Are Made Of
Keeping aside the (hard-to-ignore) fact that Burj Khalifa is the world’s most prestigious address to be living at, once you’ve taken a look at the apartments, you’ll understand why it’s so much more than just that. The iconic landmark has over 900 residential units, including studios and one- to four-bedroom suites. Think gorgeous dark-stained wood floors with state-of-the-art luxury fittings, and elemental floor-to-ceiling windows giving you the striking views of Dubai we fondly mentioned earlier.
The Glamour Of It All
And now for the most obvious factor of all. Burj Khalifa is inevitably the most glamorous address in the world. Hopping into a cab and asking to be dropped off at Burj Khalifa (because that’s where home is) is a dream many of us harbour. But alas, only a few are lucky enough to be living the fantasy. The Residences at Burj Khalifa are “designed for the connoisseur” and clearly possess all the factors to give high-flying individuals their money’s worth.
Its location in the 'Centre of Now' Downtown Dubai is just the cherry on top. With the UAE's largest shopping mall just a stone's throw away, Burj Khalifa residents are never short of shopping and dining options, with chic restaurants in Burj Khalifa's vicinity to choose from. An internal link takes residents directly to Dubai Mall, making it super convenient. The spectacular Dubai Fountains also make for great views from Burj Khalifa apartments. It's no surprise that the happening neighbourhood makes up most of our list of things to do in 24 hours in Dubai.
The glamour element of living in Burj Khalifa can also be attributed to common celebrity sightings in the tower. Giorgio Armani's hotel is located in Burj Khalifa, while there are tons of celebrities and high-profile socialites who frequent the building. Dubai is one of the top choices of celebrities looking to invest overseas, with many who own apartments in Dubai. Check out our round-up of celebrities who own homes in Dubai to find out which ones own apartments in Burj Khalifa.
Rents for a 1-bedroom apartment in Burj Khalifa start from AED 130k, while 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom flats can be leased for annual rents starting from AED 185k and AED 345k, respectively.
