Situated in Dubai’s prosperous Downtown, The 118 offers apartment-per-floor formats that redefine luxury living in a statement residential building

Signature Developers, the bespoke luxury property concern, has commenced handover to owners of its luxury condominium development in Dubai’s Downtown district. A 28-residence high-rise, The 118, provides 26 single-storey apartments, and two-duplex penthouses.

Conceived and developed by Signature Developers, the residential skyscraper has been personally overseen by the partners, and built according to their specifications, with the end-user in mind.

Raju Shroff, Director of Signature Developers, said of the project: “This was an incredibly personal project for us, not only as our first, but it was something that we conceived with our lifestyles in mind. We wanted to create something that was both personal to the owner, but that offered a level of service and security not associated with a villa development or gated community.”

“The Dubai real estate landscape has matured significantly in the last decade, with a plethora of developments designed to cater to the city’s requirements. However, we felt that there was little scope available for high net worth individuals, those looking for a comprehensive home or even a second home in Dubai, and that’s where The 118 slots perfectly in this niche segment,” added Jayant Ganwani, Director of Signature Developers.

Starting from 6,600 square feet, with four-bedrooms, each apartment occupies a dedicated floor in the tower, with private access through high-speed elevators, three extra-large parking spaces, enabling the largest of luxury cars to be securely parked, while the development also provides accommodations for chauffeurs.

The two penthouses cover 12,000 square feet and feature six large bedrooms, across two floors, with two bedrooms on the first floor and four bedrooms on the second floor.

To ensure panoramic 360 degree views of the city, the residences start from the 14th storey and above, providing unparalleled views across the city, through its 3.5m high windows. The apartments come complete with either a classic or contemporary finish, while kitchens and bathrooms are professionally fitted out with Kohler sanitary ware, Siematic kitchen units and Miele appliances.

The building has been designed as more than just a showpiece, it’s designed to be lived in, with each facet of residential life taken into consideration. Concierge and security services are on hand 24 hours to ensure comfort and peace of mind, while a maintenance team are on hand to take care of any housekeeping matters.

The development comes complete with an exquisitely designed temperature-controlled swimming pool, jogging track, treatment rooms and a comprehensive fitness centre including gym and steam facilities. Guests can also access the 4,000 sq.ft. sunset lounge on the rooftop, perfect for private functions and a 20,000 sq.ft. poolside garden and deck, ideal for large and elegant soirées. Additionally, there’s a multi-purpose room for any kind of event and chic common space interiors.

With direct access to the world’s biggest shopping destination, The Dubai Mall, and conveniently located to some of Dubai’s finest dining outlets, entertainment facilities, and the world-renowned Burj Khalifa, The 118 takes pride of place in the vibrant Downtown district.

The 118 project has won two accolades at the Arabian Property Awards 2016-17 namely under the Highly Commended Apartment and Highly Commended Interior Design Apartment categories. In addition, the property was also shortlisted for the Society of British and International Design Awards 2017 under the Show Flats & Developments category.
