Dubai, the land of towering skyscrapers, is getting yet another set of buildings.
The Rosemont Hotel & Residences is a massive, double-tower complex that’s currently being constructed under the direction of ZAS Architects Dubai.
Part of a the new Rosemont global hotel brand, the $A714 million project will consist of two towers rising over 50 stories each, adding up to over 2 million square feet on a 140,000-square-foot site.
One tower will be a hotel, and the other will be serviced apartments, all slated to open this year. In case you weren’t certain you were living in a Jetsons alternate reality, robotic room service and luggage handling should clue you in.
The world’s first indoor rainforest is another perk.
Take a look at what the next big thing in luxury real estate will look like.
The 75,000-square-foot outdoor rainforest will have a café, stream, and space for 'adventure play', according to information provided by ZAS Architects Dubai.
The lot -- in the upscale Al Thanyah neighbourhood, near Ski Dubai and the Mall of the Emirates -- was previously vacant.
To make sure the rainforest functions, despite being located in a building in one of the most arid desert climates in the world, water will be collected and stored from condensation. The rainforest area will present a 'unique all weather atmosphere' with shade and mist sprays from trees, and there will even be 'activity trails' to explore the rooftop rainforest.
The hotel section will be managed by the Curio Collection by Hilton. Pricing information is not yet available, but the nearby five-star Burj Al Arab goes for upwards of $1,600 a night.
