A five-star hotel with a doughnut-style hole in the middle? Sounds good to us…
Dubai’s a city that likes to bend the boundaries when it comes to architecture – and its latest development is definitely doing that.
The images for a just-announced Address hotel have been released, and we’re marvelling over the futuristic twin-tower structure.
Set to be located in Jumeirah Beach Residences, the doughnut-inspired building will feature 182 hotels rooms, serviced residences and residential apartments.
It’ll be the first beachfront hotel for the resort chain, but developer Emaar hasn’t yet revealed when it will open.
What we do know, however, is that it’ll be made up of two 290-metre towers, which will be adjoined at the lobby and top-tier levels. The overall look is like a shimmering, squashed bagel (a sentence we never thought we’d write, but one we mean as a true compliment).
One of the 74-storey towers will house the hotel, and the other will be properties for residents, the latter of which will go on sale in the near future.
Sitting at the southern end of the JBR strip, guests and residents will get direct access to Sheikh Zayed Road, and views of the upcoming Ain Dubai ferris wheel
There’ll be some separate facilities for guests and residents, including pools, and some shared – such as five on-site eateries.
Want more? You got it – how about a rooftop infinity pool, 24-hour gym, 100 metres of beach frontage, and a top-floor lounge – plus ballrooms and boardrooms?
The JBR location also isn’t the only Address branch opening in the city – a Downtown hotel is set to be unveiled at the end of this year.
It’ll be the first Address hotel to open in Dubai in six years, and looks set to open around the one-year anniversary of the New Year’s Eve fire that destroyed the Address Downtown Hotel.
Address Boulevard will be housed on the lower levels of a new, 72-storey tower linked to The Dubai Mall, and will comprise 196 hotel rooms, including 36 suites and a club lounge, with serviced residences, a massive spa, and restaurants also on-site.
