Emaar debuts Burj Park waterfront homes within Downtown Burj Dubai

Emaar properties PJSC has unveiled Burj Park, a premium waterfront residential zone and the first of its kind within Downtown Burj Dubai, conveniently located within walking distance of Burj Dubai and The Dubai Mall.

United Arab Emirates: Thursday, April 03 - 2008 at 13:49

Burj Park also offers direct access to Burj Lake Promenade and to Park Island, a 25-hectare park located on an island accessible via a bridge walkway. Burj Park homes redefine the lifestyle experience by blending elegant views and modern amenities. Many of the residences open to Burj Dubai and a vast panorama of greenery and water, including The Fountain, a monumental, world-class musical water feature incorporating choreographed music, light and projection. The Fountain forms the centrepiece of Burj Dubai Lake.

The sale of studios, and one- and two- bedroom apartments in the 50-storey Burj Park will begin on April 5, 2008 at the Downtown Living Sales Centre located with Downtown Burj Dubai. Potential customers can look forward to luxury living in a lifestyle-rich environment described as the 'soul of Dubai.'

Mr Saif Al Mansoori, Sales Director, Emaar Properties, said:

'Burj Park V is situated in a prime location, defined by the impressive waterfront views it offers residents. Burj Park V homes will appeal to the stylish and sophisticated, with an address where luxury is the way of life. Adding to the affluence of the community is its central location within the thriving neighbourhood, Downtown Burj Dubai, which has already been recognised as a global investment destination.' Burj Park V features neo-classical architecture and modern décor designed as a collaboration between international and local architects. The interiors of every apartment are embellished with the finest furnishings, accessories and fittings. Podium level amenities include a swimming pool, children's pool, Jacuzzi, outdoor dining area, children's play area, fully-equipped gymnasium and club house with secure parking. The podium also has a number of apartments with private gardens overlooking Burj Dubai Lake and lush, landscaped courtyards.

Mr Al Mansoori explained: 'Burj Park V offers 'a cut above the rest' ambience, and is a perfect complement to the vibrant lifestyle choices offered by Downtown Burj Dubai. The newest neighbourhood in the city has already come to life with residential communities at The Residences and The Old Town, and with the opening of Souk Al Bahar, a shopping mall with a delectable array of dining outlets and cafes - all in an Arabesque environment.' The 500-acre Downtown Burj Dubai, currently, also hosts three hotels - Al Manzil, Qamardeen and The Palace, The Old Town; as well as dedicated commercial offices. Burj Dubai, the world's tallest building, and The Dubai Mall, one of the world's largest shopping and entertainment destinations, are being completed.

Burj Park, similar to the rest of Downtown Burj Dubai, can be easily accessed from Sheikh Zayed Road, and will also enjoy close proximity to Burj Dubai Metro station. It is located in close proximity to the Dubai International Financial Centre and other business nerve-centres of the city. Investor response to residential and commercial property in Downtown Burj Dubai is strong, reflecting the increasing preference by potential customers to own property in one of the most prestigious addresses in Dubai.

Detail diagram of the Burj Dubai April 22nd 2008

Detail diagram of the Burj Dubai April 22nd 2008, the Burj Dubai is now at level 162

To get the levels straight ...

- 160 levels - not counting the 4 lower levels.
- Add 6 - for Ground level, 155 mezz., 158 mezz., 160 mezz.1, 160 mezz. 2, and 160 mezz. 3
- Subtract 4 - for skipped levels 41, 74, 110, and 137.
= 162 levels.

Burj Dubai tier methodology

Burj Dubai tier methodology to help show which direction the terraces face. A 360 degree directional compass was used for the approximate direction the points of the wings face.

Tier 30 Top is a platform 1.5 M diameter with a hatch.
Tier 30 - pinnacle 4 is circular 1.2 M diameter.
Tier 29 - pinnacle 3 is circular 1.35 M diameter.
Tier 28 - pinnacle 2 is circular 1.5 M diameter.
Tier 27 - pinnacle 1 begins with tier 26 terrace facing 180, then rises up circular 2.1 M diameter.

Tier 24, 25, and 26 wings are 1.5 M long.
Tier 26 - spire 5 begins with tier 25 terrace facing 60 then rises up with 1 wing facing 180.
Tier 25 - spire 4 begins with tier 24 terrace facing 300 then rises up with 2 wings facing 60 and 180.
Tier 24 - spire 3 begins with tier 23 terrace facing 240 then rises up symmetrically with 3 wings facing 60, 180, and 300.

Tier 21, 22, and 23 wings are 6 M long.
Tier 23 - spire 2 begins with tier 22 terrace facing 120 then rises up with 1 wing facing 240.
Tier 22 - spire 1/roof 4 begins with tier 21 terrace facing 0 then rises up with 2 wings facing 120 and 240.
Tier 21 - roof 3 begins with tier 20 terrace facing 240 then rises up symmetrically with 3 wings facing 0, 120, and 240.

Tier 18, 19, and 20 wings are 6 M long.
Tier 20 - roof 2 begins with tier 19 terrace facing 120 then rises up with 1 wing facing 240.
Tier 19 - roof 1 begins with tier 18 terrace facing 0 then rises up with 2 wings facing 120 and 240.
Tier 18 begins with Tier 17 terrace facing 300 then rises up symmetrically with 3 wings facing 0, 120, and 240.

They are working on the first level / section of tier 18. We can see the terrace faces opposite of the shot - 300 degrees and the 3 wings of tier 18 facing 0, 120, and 240 degrees. Then tier 18 top (first section of tier 19 terrace) faces 0 degrees (North) or where Ember's 20 is. The methodology can then be followed to get the rest. Also tier 27 to 30 are circular.
