THIS is the jaw-dropping 100-storey “hypertower” set to dazzle the Dubai skyline while becoming the world’s tallest residential building.
The Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences has been planned as a modern architectural feat which takes its inspiration from one of the world’s most renowned timepiece makers.

The final height for the Business Bay skyscraper has not been released, but the glistening crown on the top of structure will easily be seen above Dubai’s tallest residential building, the Princess Tower, standing at 1289ft.
It will also dethrone the current world record holder, The Central Park Tower, on 57th Street in Manhattan, New York, that boasts 98 stories and reaches roughly 1550ft.
However, it will still be dwarfed by the world tallest building, The Burj Khalifa (2716ft), which houses a mix of commercial enterprises and is why it is not counted as a residential building.
Jacob & Co Chairman and creative director Jacob Arabo claimed the colossal structure “will be an unheard-of achievement in the world of real estate and luxury”.

Speaking on behalf of both companies, Binghatti CEO and head of architecture Muhammad Binghatti said it was a pursuit of elegance.
“Both our brands are born from the sheer desire to achieve what breaks boundaries,” Mr Binghatti said.
“What Binghatti has done in real estate, by creating a brand through a distinct design philosophy and architectural identity is very similar to what Jacob & Co has done in the world of jewellery and horology.”
The entry-level residences will consist of two collections.
The Sapphire Suite Collection offers two-bedroom residential units, while The Emerald Suite Collection will be comprised of three-bedroom units.
