http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=114160


Size : Total built-up area of 57,231sqm

Status : Design stage

The Gold Crest Tower project represents the Client's desire for a "prestigious & exclusive" residential development with the prime objective of the entire concept design process to portray an elite, luxurious lifestyle.

The design comprises a 40 storey tower above a podium deck combined with three basement levels of car park below ground. The overall concept is derived from the combination of two main elevational forms which together present a bold, modern, elegant building, setting it aside as a timeless signature in contrast to the adjacent developments. The massing of the building form is a combination of strong visual elements in tension, created by the use of sweeping twin fins which curve, taper and visually support the main rectangular residential tower. Articulation to the tower is provided by use of the balconies, feature elements of the flagpole and colour contrast to strengthen and enhance the overall dynamic effect.

The tower comprises 36 residential floors with 376 apartments together with a first floor level health club, two service floors and a mechanical floor at the roof. The apartments are a mix of studio, one-, two-, three-and four-bedroom units and duplex penthouse apartments. All apartments are located around a central rectangular core to ensure maximum views from each apartment to the surrounding area. The central core is designed to accommodate the lifts, staircases and service areas of the building. Each apartment is provided with a generous balcony emphasising the resort lifestyle of the development.

Other key features include:
- 173 car parking spaces accommodated
within the basement area of the tower;
- Retail spaces at ground level;
- Swimming pool terrace deck;
- Children's play area on upper deck;
- Health club, gymnasium and aerobics facility at ground level;
- Business suites at ground level.

This is one of the best apartments in the Jumeria Lake Towers in my view. Very good quality, excellent location and the apartments have really nice big balconies.
