A real estate developer Nakheel unveiled Ibn Battuta Residences, a new, landmark twin-tower complex with 531 luxury apartments, to be built next to Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai. The project was launched at Cityscape Global real estate exhibition and promises alter the skyline of Jebel Ali with two 48-floor buildings scheduled for completion in 2019.
Ibn Battuta Residences will sit just off Sheikh Zayed Road and will be adjacent to another Nakheel’s creation, the world-famous Ibn Battuta Mall. Thereby, the towers will be within walking distance of more than 400 shops, restaurants and entertainment facilities, the Dubai Metro, Ibn Battuta Bus Station and Jebel Ali park.
Ibn Battuta Residences will include 395 two bedroom and 136 three bedroom apartments, some with balconies and a maid’s room, but all with extensive sea and city views. The highlight of the twin towers will be a podium-level health and recreation complex with a landscaped pool deck complete with pools for adults and children, and a gym, as well as four levels of car parking with 900 spaces.
The residences complement a major expansion under way at Ibn Battuta Mall, where Nakheel is adding hundreds of shops, a new cinema complex and two hotels, the first of which will open next month, to the existing retail and leisure hub.
Ibn Battuta Residences is Nakheel’s second luxury project to be launched at Cityscape Dubai and the latest addition to Nakheel’s growing portfolio of residential leasing portfolio. The company aims to double its leasing stock to more than 36,000 units over the next five years.
