Opera Grand 1All set to vitalise the city’s arts and cultural scene, The Opera District is another iconic development by Emaar, and Opera Grand is set in a prime location within the cultural destination. The 66-storey residential tower will feature over 200 luxuriously appointed 2, 3 and 4-bedroom apartments.

All of them overlook Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Fountain, and Dubai Opera, a 2,000-seat multi-format venue for opera, theatre, concerts, art exhibitions, orchestra, film, sports events and seasonal programmes. Opera Grand also features a high-end retail podium connected by an overhead link bridge, which offers uninterrupted views of Burj Park.

It also has a rooftop swimming pool that offers breath-taking views of Downtown Dubai, in addition to a modern health club.

Residents of Opera Grand will be part of an unmatched lifestyle in the company of art enthusiasts and cultural icons at The Opera District, which will also feature luxury hotels, elegantly designed serviced apartments, a retail plaza, waterfront promenades, recreational spaces and parks. Clustered around are design studios, art galleries, and other cultural venues that bring Opera Grand residents in close proximity to Dubai’s vibrant cultural scene.

Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director of Emaar Properties, said: “The Opera District is one of the most defining new developments by Emaar that focuses on creating a compelling arts and cultural destination in the heart of the city. With Dubai’s cultural scene gaining strong interest internationally, and a number of arts events welcoming thousands of cultural tourists to Dubai, The Opera District is uniquely positioned to provide a new lifestyle choice. Opera Grand is our first residential project in this iconic district, and will offer tremendous value for the discerning customers.”

Arif Amiri, Chief Commercial Officer of Emaar Properties, said: “There are several distinguishing features that make Opera Grand a fantastic lifestyle choice for cultural enthusiasts and connoisseurs who value the finer aspects of life. From design aesthetics to an unbeatable location overlooking Dubai Opera, all apartments are defined by careful attention to details with superior finishes, exemplary décor and a range of amenities including the rooftop swimming pool.”

In an innovative sleek design, Opera Grand is designed to stand out like an exquisite sculpture with a unique scalloped northwest façade. The apartments have double-glazed floor-to-ceiling windows and large balconies that maximise views of Downtown Dubai. Some of the units in the higher levels will also have rooftop terraces.
