Binghatti, Jacob & Co will develop an ultra-luxury skyscraper in Dubai
Binghatti, one of the leading property development companies in the UAE, has partnered with leading watch and jewelry brand Jacob & Company to build its ultra-luxury skyscraper in Dubai – Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residential homes.
Uniting their rich heritage and their iconic architectural and watchmaking codes, the two major brands are aiming for the record for the world’s tallest residential structure with this new venture, a statement from Binghatti said.
The proposed design includes over 100 floors consisting of lavish two and three bedroom residences.
In a symbolic union of words and facts, the top of the Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences is home to five of Dubai’s most luxurious and exclusive penthouses. Floating on top of the world, they offer stunning views of the city skyline, including downtown and the Dubai Water Canal, he said.
Announcing the project, Muhammad Binghatti, CEO and Head of Architecture at Binghatti, said: “Today marks the important partnership between two like-minded brands, both in a constant quest for absolute elegance. Both of our brands were born out of the pure desire to achieve what breaks boundaries.”
“Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences invents a new term in luxury real estate: hypertower. Ushering in a new era in ultra-luxury living, this unprecedented skyscraper aims to set a record as one of the tallest buildings residential buildings in the world. In a great leap forward, it stands opulently in the heart of Dubai’s most prominent financial district, Business Bay,” he said.
“What Binghatti has done in real estate, creating a brand through a distinct design philosophy and architectural identity, is very similar to what Jacob & Co has done in the world of jewelry and watchmaking” , Binghatti said of his partner.
“Several levels have been dedicated to amenities such as an infinity pool overlooking the entire Dubai skyline, a luxury spa and gymnasium. This hypertower is also home to a dedicated concierge team, offering a la carte services such as daycare, bodyguard, driver and private chef,” he added.
Drawing inspiration from the aesthetics of watchmaking and fine jewelry, the design of Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences recalls the baguette-cut gemstones for which Jacob & Co is renowned. Entry-level residences will include two collections: the Sapphire Suite Collection consisting of two-bedroom residential units and the Emerald Suite Collection consisting of three-bedroom units.
The project explores the combined ingenious design languages of Binghatti and Jacob & Co. Speaking with one voice, they deploy distinct exterior silhouettes that speak to the design philosophy of the two internationally renowned brands, the developer said.
Further details of the project will be unveiled at a special event on November 16 at the largest multi-purpose indoor stadium in the Middle East, the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai.
“We took inspiration from the complex horological movements that beat in Jacob & Co timepieces and integrated them into the key elements of the tower,” Binghatti remarked.
“The diamond-shaped spiers atop the tower recall a real crown, a uniquely slender ornament inspired by the design of Jacob & Co’s intricately cut gemstones. It’s the height of the luxury narrative in this evocative construction , a signature that adds even more grandeur to the city’s skyline,” he added.
“Inspired by our fine watchmaking collections, these penthouses will consist of three types, each named after our flagship Jacob & Co Fleurs De Jardin, Astronomia and Billionaire timepieces,” said Jacob Arabo, President and Chief Creative Officer of Jacob & Co.
“The interior design of the penthouse collection will be directly inspired by their unique aesthetic. As its name suggests, the Billionaire Penthouse is the jewel of the hyper tower in the crown,” noted Arabo.
According to him, the hypertower also houses an exclusive private club, complete with a vast infinity pool.
“Its luxury amenities include an expansive lounge as well as private event space reserved for Jacob & Co. Materials, details and finishes are conceptualized and designed in collaboration with our designers whose attention to detail is applied to scale and unprecedented height,” he said.
“This collaboration is a new way for us to apply our motto: ‘Inspired by the impossible’. It is a commitment to breaking boundaries and pushing boundaries. Our driving force is ingenuity and originality. It leads us to design jewelry, watches and now a hypertower, unlike anything the world has seen before,” observed Arabo.
“Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences is an unprecedented achievement in the world of real estate and luxury, not to mention watches and jewelry,” he said.
“As well as being involved in the entire hypertower design process, Jacob & Co will also offer exclusively curated timepieces and jewelry, most of which are limited editions or unique pieces, which customers can purchase with their residence,” he added.
