A 63-storey tower, The Address, Downtown Burj Dubai will feature 196 hotel rooms/suites. The Address, Dubai Mall, featuring 43 storeys, has a gross floor area of 92,397 sq m. The promise of a true 5 star premium experience will be assured in the hotels through speciality restaurants, fully equipped business lounges, meeting rooms, a modern fitness centre, spa, swimming pools and over 1,000 parking lots. Overlooking Burj Dubai, the world’s tallest building, The Address, Downtown Burj Dubai is in close proximity to The Address, The Dubai Mall, located as part of one of the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destinations.
Richard W. Riley, Managing Director, The Address Hotels & Resorts said: “The Address, Downtown Burj Dubai, and The Address, Dubai Mall, our pioneering hotel projects under the newly launched brand will be spectacular additions to the hotel sector of Dubai. The hotels will uphold our core philosophy of providing a boutique style ‘one size fits one’ experience. The central location within Downtown Burj Dubai and the luxury features of the hotels will be a draw for visitors and cement our positioning of ‘Where Life Happens’.”
Work on The Address, Downtown Burj Dubai and on The Address, Dubai Mall started in April 2005. With structural and block work of the exteriors accomplished, several hundred workers are now employed in fitting out the podium cladding and interior fittings. The work is expected to be completed later this year.
Emaar is currently developing another hotel under The Address brand name in Dubai - The Address, Dubai Marina which is also scheduled to open later this year. Emaar will add more hotels and resorts under The Address banner as the brand develops locally and internationally.
The addition of The Address completes Emaar Hospitality Group’s portfolio as a full-service hospitality company. With total assets of development value US$1 billion (AED 3.67 billion), Emaar Hospitality Group owns and manages a diversified portfolio of hospitality assets such as hotels, serviced residences, golf resorts, polo and equestrian club, recreation clubs, and the Dubai Marina Yacht Club and Marinas.
