Burj Khalifa home handover from March

Emaar Properties said it will start handing residents keys to their new homes in Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, in March.

“The Residences, comprising 900 apartments, and The Corporate Suites, a collection of high-end offices, will be handed over to customers starting March,” the developer said.

“The handover programme can take anywhere from two to six months,” it added. Burj Khalifa was opened on January 4.

Emaar Properties has spent $1.5 billion (Dh5.5bn) on the tower since construction began in 2004, and at the peak of construction 12,000 workers were involved.

The developer of the iconic tower is readying to welcome its first residents. An orientation programme for home-owners of Armani Residences located on levels nine to 16 is currently under way.

The interiors of Armani Residences is in the final stages, and finishing work of The Residences in Burj Khalifa is progressing at a fast pace, an official release said yesterday. The hand-over of homes begins first with the Armani Residences comprising 144 private apartments personally designed by Giorgio Armani.
