Dubai is a city known across the globe for its ambitious and epic structures—from Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, to Palm Jumeirah, a manmade archipelago fitted with hotels, resorts and residences.
Breaking records and achieving firsts has not stopped the city from expanding, as new developments continue to pop up every year.
Dubai Plan 2040, a comprehensive plan for sustainable urban development, estimates that about 500,000 new units will be added to the city over the next two decades to accommodate the growing population.
Last year, the market saw an increase of nearly 36,000 new units, according to research done by CORE. Unlike other parts of the world where extreme shortages in housing have led to unaffordable prices, Dubai’s steady growth in supply with the addition of new developments, like those listed below, has kept high prices at bay.
New residential structures are being delivered at a constant and rapid rate, but the new developments are by no means ordinary. Instead, they represent a continuation of Dubai’s legacy as a city of spectacular buildings.
Take a look at these new stunning developments in Dubai:
Atlantis The Royal Residences at Palm Jumeirah
Unlike the mythology of its namesake, Atlantis the Royal Residences is not difficult to find—daring architecture and a premier location on the crescent of the Palm have already made this new development into an iconic landmark, one that catches the eye immediately.
While residences come in a variety of shapes and sizes ranging from two to five bedrooms, all feature impeccable interior designs, chic style and world-class views.
But living at Atlantis the Royal is much more than just extravagant housing and stylish design—residents will also lead an opulent lifestyle with luxury resort amenities and experiences.
Lover’s of fine dining will find themselves right at home at the Atlantis, which features gourmet restaurants helmed by the likes Gordon Ramsay, Jose Andres and Heston Blumenthal.
Swimming opportunities are abundant with access to private beaches and pools, including the Sky Pool, a 90-meter-high infinity pool with ample space for lounging and relaxation.
