Emaar Properties is undertaking the UK launch on 10th August 2016 of Act One | Act Two, a luxury residential development formed of two residential towers located above a podium which connects at ground and lower levels, providing a dramatic entrance foyer, retail and leisure facilities. The Act One | Act Two development is located on Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard in the heart of The Opera District, in Downtown Dubai.
Inspired by the area’s cultural pedigree and landmarks, Act One | Act Two provide a combined total of 718 apartments and penthouses, located in sister towers, overlooking the Dubai Fountain and Burj Khalifa. Apartments at Act One | Act Two will include one, two and three bedroom apartments ranging from 680 sq.ft for a one bedroom apartment to 1,100 sq.ft to 1,200 sq.ft for a two bedroom apartment, up to 1,500 sq.ft for a three bedroom apartment.
The launch is taking place at a special Emaar showcase being held at the world-famous Harrodsdepartment store in London. The Emaar showcase at Harrods takes the form of a spectacular new 2,000 Sq Ft marketing suite on the second floor of the iconic department store. It features scale-models of The Opera District, Dubai Hills Estate and Dubai Creek Harbour alongside visuals and information on Arabian Ranches and Dubai Marina. The marketing suite provides a “must-see” attraction for visitors and forms the centrepiece of a UK sales campaign for Emaar that is being undertaken in association with Harrods Estates.
The Act One| Act Two towers will be 52 storeys and 46 storeys tall respectively. The towers have been designed to complement the adjacent Dubai Fountain, with the architecture having an innovative stepped design on the upper levels, creating a silhouette that recalls the dancing shapes of the fountain and provides the towers a unique and dynamic profile.
The stepped design of the towers creates a range of balconies and roof terraces for a selection of the apartments. On the upper floors of both towers, three bedroom apartments will have large terraces overlooking Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, and The Dubai Fountain. The uppermost floors of the towers will also be home to spectacular penthouses, benefitting from large L-shaped terraces, and providing sweeping views over Downtown Dubai.
The two towers act as a ‘gateway’ for Burj Khalifa, with the podium connection between the structures forming a fitting frame for pedestrians to view the Burj Khalifa as they pass through it.
Located in the centre of The Opera District, residents will want for nothing, as the two towers will provide prime luxury living at the heart of the UAE’s cultural and entertainment hub. The podium linking the Act One | Act Two towers will be home to luxurious cafes and eateries, as well as an infinity pool, spa, and gymnasium. A 24-hour Concierge Service will serve residents in both towers.
The Opera District is located off Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, the main thoroughfare for Downtown Dubai. Combining cultural attractions, residential properties and leisure amenities, The Opera District is designed as the UAE’s new cultural hub. At its centre will be the new Dubai Opera, the city’s first purpose-built multi-format performing arts theatre.
Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director of Emaar Properties said: “We are delighted to launch further exceptional residences within The Opera District, Act One | Act Two will be the new ‘gateway’ to Burj Khalifa. Residents will be on the doorstep of one of the world’s greatest cultural centres – The Opera District – and be part of the celebration of the arts; living here will mean being part of a greater movement. The generous apartment sizes, terraces overlooking Dubai Opera and innovative architecture reflecting The Dubai Fountain make these apartments some of the finest in Downtown Dubai.”
The homes for sale within The Opera District will provide an exclusive place to live and enjoy culture and arts, with residences at Act One | Act Two providing easy access to all the cultural offerings, internationally renowned restaurants and world-class retail that The Opera District and Downtown Dubai have to offer.
Dubai Opera has 21,530 Sq Ft of floor space and will serve as a state-of-the-art 2,000 seat multi-purpose performing arts venue and cultural hub. It will have a varied and prestigious events schedule, comprising all aspects of modern performance art, including Placido Domingo, the Bejart Ballet Lausanne, the Flamenco star Sara Baras and even The Nutcracker on Ice. Dubai Opera has been designed with technology at its core, with moveable floors that enable the space to be converted into different formats; opera house, theatre, concert hall, banquet hall or exhibition space.
Emaar Properties is proud to showcase a range of premium residences within The Opera District at its special showcase in Harrods. The Opera District will introduce a new cultural centre for Dubai, providing cultural opportunities that have not previously been available within the UAE.
