It has everything to offer from striking skyscrapers such as the Burj Khalifa and awe-inspiring tourist destinations including the Dubai Mall, one of the largest shopping centers in the world, and the Dubai Opera, a 2,000-seat multi-format performing arts center located within The Opera District.

Aside from these attractions, it is also highly celebrated for its delightful residential offerings perfect for both tourists and locals, and the following are some of the upcoming residential projects you must watch out for.

Burj Royale

Standing 58 floors and featuring an exclusive collection of premium luxury apartments ranging in one, two, and three-bedroom layouts is Burj Royale. Set in a prime location by the lavish Old Town district and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, it is billed to be the last residential tower developed by Emaar Properties with direct panoramic views of the Burj Khalifa.

Burj Royale’s distinct architecture is comprised of a low-rise vernacular foreground and a high-rise contemporary background which effortlessly transcends into a majestic modern structure. Apart from beautifully-appointed residences, Burj Royale also houses an impressive selection of excellent amenities aimed to provide utmost comfort and convenience to its residents.
