Burj Jumeirah at Downtown Jumeirah is an upcoming towering skyscraper being developed by Dubai Holdings, one of the premier pioneers in the real estate industry, among others of its business portfolio. Alongside Dubai’s other exclusive landmarks such as the Burj Khalifa, Emirates Tower, and Palm Islands, this new iconic trademark will be set to finish its first phase of development in 2023. Looking forward to this new global attraction? Here are 5 facts about the new attraction that you need to know:

1) The building base is built upon a fingerprint

This is a curious case of design ingenuity. In celebration of the planned development project, the Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum shared his fingerprint as the outline for the base of the building. The area will be mostly utilised for social events, large scale celebrations and interactive displays.

2) The 6th tallest building in the world

Standing at 550m tall, it will be ranked in between the Lotte World Tower, Seoul (554.5m) and One World Trade Centre, New York (541.3m). The tallest building accolade is currently held by its older brother, the Burj Khalifa (828m) in Downtown Dubai. These architectural achievements encapsulate Dubai’s world-class talent pool in the industry.

3) The Crown

Situated at 450m high in the air, the summit of Burj Jumeirah by Dubai Holdings will be commercially open for the public. Plans reveal a sky-lounge and interconnected fine-dining restaurants to be located at the peak of the landmark building. Customers will have the extraordinary experience of dining with loved ones while having breath-taking views of the whole neighbourhood.

4) Situated in the Al-Sufouh district

Having its place reserved in the Al-Sufouh neighbourhood, it will inevitably boost the local tourism sector of the area too. Although Al-Sufouh boasts its own array of local tourist attractions such as the gorgeous oceanic experience of the Al-Sufouh Beach, this new iconic landmark will help captivate more consumers into visiting the areas around the district. This will inevitably boost the local economy as a whole, creating more business opportunities in the future.

5) The focal point of Downtown Jumeirah

The Burj Jumeirah will only be the starting point of a larger development project overall, by Dubai Holdings. The skyscraper will become the centre of a big urban society in the area. Future development projects include new residential areas, commercial lots, shops and recreational facilities spanning around Burj Jumeirah. This effort is closely reminiscent of Downtown Dubai with Burj Khalifa as the focal point of the whole neighbourhood.

The potential of economic success and business opportunities from this ambitious project portrays meticulous planning and careful decision-making on behalf of the developers. Nevertheless, the return on investment will require a certain period of lag time to finally be enjoyed. Hence, if you are looking for lucrative investment potentials, have a go with Dubai real estate agencies to find out more about any prospective opportunities currently open.
