Located at Jumeirah Beach Walk is the new tallest tower within the area, currently under construction. The Address Residences Jumeirah Resort & Spa will encompass an array of apartments and hotel, spanning over 250,000sqm.

Emaar Properties are behind the new development, alongside the Middle East Foundation Group, who have recently been selected as foundation contractors. The new development is set for completion in 2020.

Ahmad Al Falasi, Managing Director of estate agents Hamptons International said: “As the leading foundation contractor, Middle East Foundation Group has proven expertise in undertaking large-scale projects.”

“This iconic development has gained strong response from investors to the launch of the first homes - The Residences Jumeirah Dubai, Managed by The Address and the serviced apartments The Address Residences Jumeirah Resort Spa, and we are committed to its on-schedule delivery.”

Construction works will include over 20 kilometres of bored piling, with over 200,000 cubic metres of earth removed through excavation works.

The development will showcase stunning views of the nearby Dubai Marina and Arabian Gulf, with access to 100 metres of beachfront and an array of restaurants. In addition, the largest observation wheel is set to be included in construction works.

The tower will be split internally, with apartments on one side of the building, with the hotel situated at the other. A lobby will be placed centrally.
