When it comes to investment properties in Dubai, even in a city of skyscrapers, The Address is something special. At 306m, it's the 19th tallest tower in Dubai and the 38th tallest in the world - though admittedly this is nothing compared with its neighbour, Burj Khalifa, the tallest tower in the world.
Given its location, you would expect the Address Apartment to be design-forward - and so it is. The open-plan living area of this luxury home in United Arab Emirates is superbly designed with its luxurious bedrooms are equally cool, spacious and contemporary.
But the luxury apartment's pièce de résistance has to be the view from its floor-to-ceiling windows across Burj Khalifa Lake to the soaring Burj Khalifa. From the privacy of your own balcony, you can watch the Dubai Fountain shoot 152m into the air, accompanied by light and music and lit by a backdrop of twinkling lights.
An added benefit is that apartment residents have access to all of the facilities offered by The Addresses' five-star hotel, including a luxury spa, a fully-equipped fitness centre, infinity pool and seven restaurants and lounges, as well 24-hour services, such as concierge and laundry. And if you find yourself in need of a little retail therapy, the world's largest shopping and entertainment mall is right on your doorstep. This is more than just a property investment - it's an investment in the Dubai lifestyles.
With its wall-to-wall skyscrapers, glossy marinas, palm-shaped islands, and hotels the size of small towns, it's easy to forget this glittering city barely existed 20 years ago. Or that the Dubai you see today is only a fraction of what's to come. Take the lift to the top of the Burj Khalifa, and the first thing you notice isn't the city - it's the vast, empty desert that surrounds it.
