Emaar is the foremost property developer in the Region. Our bold vision is shown by the success of master-planned communities such as Dubai Marina, Emirates Living and Arabian Ranches. Today, people are living in Emaar properties, living their dreams, in a space of their own.

At Emaar lifestyle takes on new meaning with a sense of community, unparalleled services and attention to detail. Smart home design with state of the art technology is a feature of all Emaar properties.

Since inception Emaar has always been the innovator - pioneering free hold ownership and rent-to-own. Now, our vaunting ambition is forging again new ground with Burj Dubai – the tallest tower and largest shopping center in the world.

At Emaar, we never stop innovating and striving to improve. We embody the vision that has enabled people from all walks of life and all nationalities to share in Dubai's exceptional growth. Emaar is the Dubai of tomorrow. We shape the future with the boldest projects on the face of the earth.

I'm really excited about this project and I'm gonna continue watching it. The building is amazing looking already from the drawings. I can't wait to see it start going up.
