Emaar Properties, the developer of the mixed-use tower, has handed over homes to buyers of the designer apartments and one of the new residents, Sarah Belhasa, has shown Arabian Business TV around her home.

Ahmad Al Matrooshi, managing director – UAE, Emaar Properties, said: “Already, with the opening of Armani Hotel Dubai, the tower is buzzing with activity, and with the hand-over of The Residences and The Corporate Suites, Burj Khalifa will become a vibrant lifestyle community.”

Home-owner orientation for The Residences and The Corporate Suites, a collection of high-end offices also in the tower, is currently underway, Emaar added.

Armani Residences has been developed through a collaboration of Emaar and Giorgio Armani.

Personally designed by fashion legend Armani, the one- and two-bedroom apartments are located on levels 9-16 of the tower.

Residents also have access to a range of amenities at Armani Hotel Dubai including eight food outlets and a spa.

There are four swimming pools, an exclusive residents lounge, health and wellness facilities, and At.mosphere, the world’s highest fine dining restaurant at Level 122.
