Occupancy levels rise as Burj Khalifa celebrates first birthday


HIGHER INTEREST: Occupancy levels at the Burj Khalifa have doubled since the third quarter of 2010 on a spike in investor interest

Occupancy levels at the Burj Khalifa have doubled since the third quarter of 2010 on a spike in investor interest, Arabian Business has learned, as the world’s tallest tower marks its first birthday.

High profile events such as the filming of Tom Cruise’s ‘Mission Impossible IV’ movie have spurred new interest in the tower, said Adam Farani, an analyst with Dubai-based real estate agency Better Homes.

“The occupancy in the building has doubled since the third quarter 2010 as tenants are taking advantage of the rental rates on offer,” he said.

December saw the highest number of unit transactions of 2010, he said, without giving details.

Burj Khalifa residences: neighbours’ envy, owners’ pride

One year after the world’s tallest tower opened owners of full residential floors say selling is not an option… yet

By Parag Deulgaonkar | Published Tuesday, January 04, 2011


Burj Khalifa studios rent for Dh80,000 per annum; one-beds from Dh120,000, and two-beds from Dh190,000. (AGENCY)

Quote:
Owners of full floors in Burj Khalifa are not willing to sell units at a discount, but are willing to rent them at reasonable rates instead.

One year since the world’s tallest free standing structure was launched, two owners of complete floors, who did not wish to reveal their names, told Emirates 24|7 that they will not be selling any units on their floors at discounted prices.

The Chief Executive Officer of a Dubai-based real estate company, which owns two residential floors (28 apartments) in the world’s tallest tower, said: “We already have taken possession of our floors. They are fully residential. We don’t plan to sell any of our unit at a loss. We rather lease them than sell since we can afford to hold on to our investment.”

A reputed businessman, who owns a single floor, said: “Since, I am based in Dubai and operate my business from here, I always wanted to own space in this iconic tower. I do own a floor now, but I don’t see myself selling any unit in it for a lower price than what I have paid. I will hold on to the property, even if I don’t rent them.”

Both of them refused to disclose the price they paid for the floors and the expected price at which they would be willing to sell.

Hi all.

Hi Paris.
Thanks for posting.
Too bad they don't give out any occupancy numbers. Would be nice to know where they're at. 15 % is my guess ...
