Jacob & Co is Building a Record-Breaking Skyscraper in Dubai

Dubai is no stranger to architectural records. In fact, the United Arab Emirates city boasts over 425 of them, including the world’s largest flower arrangement, the world’s largest mall, and the world’s biggest picture frame. Cynics would say they are perhaps compensating for something… Regardless, it’s clear the region is obsessed with big objects, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. The Burj Binghatti and Jacob & Co skyscraper is proof of that, with the project aspiring to achieve the record for the world’s tallest residential structure.

The luxury jewellery and watch company has joined forces with one of Dubai’s biggest Emeriti property developers to create a ‘new era in uber-luxury living’. Located in the heart of Dubai’s most eminent financial district, Business bay, the design comprises over 100 stories that are made of lavish two-bedroom and three-bedroom residences. Additionally, the unique jewel of the building symbolises the iconic design languages of Binghatti and Jacob & Co.

“We took inspiration from the complex horological movements that beat in Jacob & Co timepieces and we integrated them into the key elements of the tower,” said Muhammad Binghatti, CEO & Head of Architecture of Binghatti. “The diamond-shaped spires sitting at the peak of the tower are reminiscent of an actual crown, an ornament of unique finesse inspired by the design of Jacob & Co’s finely cut gems. This is the apex of the luxury narrative in this evocative construction, a signature feature that add further grandeur to the city’s skyline.”

The top of Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences harbours five of the most luxurious and exclusive penthouses in Dubai. Floating high in the sky, they offer boundless views of the city’s skyline, including downtown and the Dubai Water Canal.

“Inspired from our high watchmaking collections, these penthouses will consist of three types, each named after our flagship Jacob & Co timepieces Fleurs De Jardin, Astronomia and Billionaire,” said Jacob Arabo, Chairman and Creative Director of Jacob & Co. The interior design of the penthouse collection will be directly inspired by their unique aesthetics. As suggested by the name, the Billionaire Penthouse is the hyper tower’s jewel in the crown.”

As you’d expect, Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences includes multiple levels dedicated to such amenities as an infinity pool overlooking the entire Dubai skyline, a luxury spa and a gymnasium. This ‘hypertower’ also houses a dedicated concierge team, offering à la carte services such as daycare, bodyguard, chauffeur and private chef. Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences’ hypertower’ is also home to an exclusive private club, featuring an extensive infinity pool. Its luxury amenities include a vast lounge as well as a private event area reserved for Jacob & Co.

Apart from being involved in the entire design process of the hypertower, Jacob & Co will also be offering exclusively curated timepieces and jewellery, most of which are limited edition or unique pieces, that clients can purchase along with their residences.
