Lavish buildings are the norm in Dubai, with each boasting flamboyant features to set them apart from the rest. Few, however, can boast their own artificial rainforest like ZAS Group’s planned Rosemont hotel and residences. The two-tower development will be operated by Hilton’s luxury Curio brand.
- ZAS describes Rosemont as “a very important high-end 5-star” development and says it will be located in a prime position on Sheikh Zayed Road in the Al Thanyah First area of Dubai. The US$300 million project was awarded to ZAS after it won an international design competition.
ZAS says Rosemont is aimed at capturing the buzz of Dubai in a contemporary manner. The 13,000 sq m (140,000 sq ft) site comprises two 47-story towers raised atop a 5-story shared podium. In addition to acting as a “pedestal” for the towers, the podium will host a variety of amenities.
To begin with, it will be home to retail spaces and a sheesha café. There will be a nightclub on the first floor of the podium and an entertainment complex with a bowling alley, a skydive simulator, a kids play area and a luxury cinema on the top floor. The podium will also house welcome lobbies for the hotel and the apartment towers.
