The 118 Launches Downtown Dubai Residences

By Paul Joseph

The most esteemed new addition to Downtown Dubai’s residential scene is The 118 residences, overseen by Dubai based development company, Signature Estates Limited.

Nestled in the heart of Downtown, The 118 is built on an exceptional monolithic platform that stands 14 storeys high. The 118 will set the bar as the ultimate residential address for only a discerning few with its unique collection of 27 spacious, full-floor unfurnished residences. Intelligently designed to optimise space, the residences were created ‘inside-out’ with the floor plans and layouts developed first and the exterior shell created later, resulting in the ultimate, customised haven.

Residents can choose between two styles of residences: The Signature Classic Residence which features soft, fluid designs and a warm colour palette, or The Signature Contemporary Residence boasting bedrooms finished in modern parquet surfaces and sleek lighting. Both types of residences boast impeccable finishing made to evoke a sense of warmth and comfort.

Each of the residences are designed as a space to ‘be yourself’ and designed to encompass four bedrooms and accommodate the personal preferences of each individual owner. The multi storied lobby welcomes residents with a specially designed, suspended, two-storey glass sculpture featuring fluid lines and abstract forms that are complemented by warm lighting giving a distinct combination of chic elegance, leading you to the heart of the residences through corridors laid with high-quality Italian marble custom designed for this prestigious residence.

Furthermore, each home is designed with massive four-metre high ceilings with trackless French windows that frame the rooms offering rare, unparalleled 360 degree views of Downtown, bathing it in an abundance of natural light during the daytime and glittering city lights after sunset. These trackless panes lead out to the sky terraces, ensuring a seamless ‘indoor to outdoor’ transition, completing the full experience of unified luxury.

A private haven away from the world, the residences offer a sanctuary in your own home. Immersing each resident in luxury with complete freestanding bathtubs, full-length mirrors and high-end innovative fixtures by American giant Kohler, the bathrooms and powder rooms at The 118 are designed to be unique, pampering retreats that offer fabulous indulgences. The kitchens, themed according to the Signature Classic Residence or Signature Contemporary Residence, offer designs by SieMatic and are a dream for both aspiring and accomplished chefs alike. The appliances by Miele, superior cabinetry and innovative spatial aesthetics seamlessly combine to create luxury kitchens of the future.

Luxuriously furnished, The 118 boasts state of the art technology with a temperature controlled swimming pool, an on-site fitness centre, private rooms for beauty treatments and spacious steam and sauna rooms. In addition to these premium facilities, residents get full access to an array of private dining and event spaces such as the poolside deck sprawling an immense 20,000 square feet, accommodating up to 100 guests, or a more intimate rooftop venue spreading over 4,000 square feet.
