Limitless, the real estate arm of Dubai World, said yesterday it will build a $300 million (Dh1.1 billion) residential complex in Amman, Jordan.
The towers, being built in Amman’s Abdoun neighbourhood, will contain 600 residential units that will house 2,000 people. It will feature the world’s highest suspended swimming pool – 125 metres above the city – connecting the two towers. The glass-bottomed pool, accessed from the 40th storey of each building, will provide a bird’s eye view of Amman.
There will also be a 1,000 square metre indoor plaza, with retail, entertainment and leisure facilities, as well as extensive outdoor space – a hallmark of all Limitless developments – spanning around 5,600 square metres. Designed to meet world environmental standards, the towers will also be the first “green” building in Jordan, adopting a host of eco-friendly initiatives in its design, construction and maintenance, including innovative energy saving techniques and water-recycling systems, to ensure it receives Leed accreditation.
“Jordan’s fast-growing economy, changing real estate requirements, convenient location and stability make it a firm favourite in our list of markets. Limitless Towers is the first of several distinctive, sustainable projects currently being assessed by our Jordan team,” Saeed Ahmed Saeed, CEO of Limitless, said.
Work on the project will begin in October this year and will take about three years to complete.
