Emaar Properties, the developer of the world's tallest tower, Burj Khalifa, has handed over the first homes to buyers of the building's Armani Residences.
Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Emaar Properties' managing director for the UAE, said Burj Khalida had now truly "come to life" with the opening of its first residential community.
The handovers come soon after the launch of the world's first Armani Hotel at the tower, which like Armani Residences was designed in partnership with internationally renowned fashion stylist Giorgio Armani.
"With the opening of Armani Hotel Dubai, the tower is buzzing with activity, and with the imminent hand-over of the Residences and the Corporate Suites, Burj Khalifa will become a vibrant lifestyle community," added Mr Al Matrooshi.
The one and two bedroom apartments in Armani Residences are designed to celebrate "luxurious modern living" and offer spectacular views of downtown Dubai as well as access to Armani Hotel amenities.
