The Burj Jumeirah will become the new landmark of Dubai and will stand as the centerpiece of Downtown Jumeirah, which is being developed as a vibrant community and new urban destination with hotels, restaurants and high-rise residential towers. The new Burj will be built opposite Sheikh Zayed Road in Al Sofouh.
Sheikh Mohammed described the tower and Downtown Jumeirah as a continuation of Dubai’s vision for becoming a city of the future.
Construction of the tower is expected to begin immediately, with the first phase of development expected in 2023.
The Burj Jumeirah’s design is inspired by the ripples of the UAE’s desert sand dunes and its oases. The tower’s façade will be covered with digital displays that can be utilized for various occasions and celebrations.
The top of the tower has a sky lounge and sky restaurant that can host a variety of events. The inner surfaces of the tower’s crown area can be transformed into immersive and interactive displays.
Burj Jumeira will have multiple observation decks that will allow visitors to have a 360-degree panoramic view of Dubai.
Its base is designed in the outline of Sheikh Mohammed’s fingerprint, and is planned to accommodate various social, cultural and artistic events and activities. It will also be home to numerous entertainment options, including water fountains and a terraced outdoor amphitheater. Surrounding the base of Burj Jumeira will be a fully integrated and vibrant retail component. GAD/Expat Media
