The Act One | Act Two homes open to views of the Burj Khalifa and the Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard
Emaar Properties unveiled a collection of residences located adjacent to the Dubai Opera, the centerpiece of The Opera District in Downtown Dubai.
The ‘Act One | Act Two’ residences are seated in 52- and 46-storey towers that take their facade design cues from The Dubai Fountain. The homes open to views of the Burj Khalifa and the Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard.
Residents will be close to Dubai’s multi-format venue for performing arts, concerts, theatre, operas, art exhibitions, film events and more. They are also in walking distance of The Dubai Mall. Scheduled to open soon, Dubai Opera will be a magnet for arts and cultural enthusiasts from across the world, who will be drawn to its repertoire of year-round events.
Act One | Act Two will be launched internationally with a sales event at Harrods in London on Wednesday, followed by the Dubai launch on Thursday at Emaar sales centres.
Act One | Act Two feature 718 residential units, including one-, two-, and three-bedrooms, and a limited collection of penthouses located on the highest two levels. A dedicated promenade opens to a view of the Dubai Opera with high-end retail and cafes, and amenities including a health club, spa, infinity pools and swimming pools are a part of the Act One | Act Two lifestyle.
Ahmad Al Matrooshi, managing director of Emaar Properties, said: “Act One | Act Two are a destination of choice for all culturally inclined as they now have the unique value proposition of living right next door to Dubai Opera. A premium development that celebrates the vibrant cultural lifestyle of the city, the residences bring a one-of-a-kind lifestyle choice to the city. The international launch of the project underlines the strong demand from discerning investors.”
A podium connection to Burj Khalifa is the highlight with majestic vistas of the tower emerging as they pass beneath the podium on foot. A variety of roof terraces and balconies not only lend an architectural flourish to the project but also assure unmatched views, more so from the L-shaped terraces of the penthouses.
The launch follows the earlier investor interest to the Dubai Grand and Forte residences in The Opera District, a cultural destination that features luxury hotels, homes, a retail plaza, waterfront promenades and parks. The 2,000-seat multi-format Dubai Opera is as iconic in appearance as the Sydney Opera House, and takes design cues from the classic wooden dhows.
Act One | Act Two will have a range of services, including 24-hour concierge and security.
