The upcoming Banyan Tree Residences, built in partnership with UAE developer Sweid & Sweid, boasts a series of firsts. It’s the first time that the Thailand-headquartered hospitality group has lent its name to a residential development in Dubai, as well as the only project of its kind that has only one building to be contained within a gated community (which means everything in the building, the spa and cafe etc, will be for residents only).
Available in one- to four-bedroom formats, with duplex and ‘garden apartment’ options, the 244 apartments are all about clean lines, separate kitchens and plenty of natural light with floor-to-ceiling windows and golf course views.
There will also be amenities provided by Banyan Tree, including a 31-metre infinity swimming pool, gymnasium, a children’s playing area with a climbing wall, and a cafe, club and spa open only to residents. Plus, according to the tower’s marketing material there will be “complimentary treatments” for residents all year round.
The stand-alone building, which is located close to Cluster Y in JLT, will be ready by the third quarter of 2019, and prices start from about Dh1,800 per square foot.
