Al Habtoor City's $250m super-luxury penthouses
Dubai, October 7, 2013
Dubai-based Al Habtoor Group, which today launched its $3 billion Al Habtoor City, revealed that the project's residential offering will include 11 super-luxury penthouses, two of which will be VIP/Presidential-style.
The project offers two 74-floor residential blocks and one 40-floor residential tower. Each of the towers will house a single-storey 720 sq m Simplex penthouse, and two 2-storey Duplex penthouses ranging from 795 sq m to 820 sq m. Every penthouse will include its own private sky garden and swimming pool.
The two taller blocks will each feature a massive VIP penthouse with over 3,000 sq m (32,300 sq ft) of living space.
The two VIP penthouses, on levels 72 to 74, will have seven bedrooms including an opulent master bedroom, garden terraces complete with a swimming pool and Jacuzzi. The two top floors will provide residents with a private entertainment area offering them a pre-function room leading to a 584 sq m open-plan sky lounge completely surrounded by glass - and offering a 360 degree view of Dubai.
Residents of the VIP penthouses will be ensured exclusivity. Special access cards will grant them priority use of the residents’ lift, which will not stop at any other floor while carrying a VIP resident. The lift will take them to their front door in under 30 seconds from the ground level.
The two VIP/Presidential-style penthouses will be über-stylish, fitted to the highest standards, with the most exclusive finishing materials from some of the world’s top brands.
Khalaf Al Habtoor, chairman of the Al Habtoor Group, said: “We don’t have plans to sell the VIP penthouses, but if we did put them on the market, we would not sell any of them for less than US $250 million each (Dh900 million).”
The VIP penthouses epitomise high-end luxury over four floors. They include:
* First level: Large open-plan living and dining area; a gym complete with sauna and steam room; a large bar and entertainment area; two en suite guest bedrooms; a fully-fitted kitchen and maids quarters; four corner terraces with individual amenities; a lap pool and garden; and three terraces equipped with an open air Jacuzzi and unique water feature.
* Second level: A spacious family room; a large and exclusive master bedroom with his and hers bathrooms; four additional bedrooms, all with en suite facilities; and home theatre
* Third level: A spacious pre-function room; kitchen and pantry to service for over 200 guests; and guest toilet facilities
* Fourth level: Sky lounge, vast open-plan function area; floor-to-ceiling windows to give residents and guests a 360 degree panoramic view of Dubai
There will be three Simplex penthouses in the residential towers; one in each of the tower blocks.
The Simplex layout covers nearly 800 sq m. The mirror image living and dining open-plan area overlooks a swimming pool and Jacuzzi in a landscaped decking area with spectacular views as far as the eye can see. The layout includes a separate living room and generously-sized kitchen area. There will also be a spacious en suite master bedroom along with four further en suite bedrooms.
There will be a total of six duplex penthouses; two in each tower. The duplex penthouse will measure 862 sq m. An L-shaped open-plan living and dining area overlooks a large swimming pool and Jacuzzi complete with decking and a lush garden. There will also be an en suite guest bedroom and large kitchen area along with maid quarters. The second floor of the duplex penthouses includes two large master suites and three further bedrooms as well as a home theatre. - TradeArabia News Service
