Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co Residences in Business Bay, Dubai is a collaboration between Emirati property development company Binghatti and American watch and jewellery retailer Jacob & Co to create a residential tower that takes luxury living to new heights – literally.

Set to be the world’s tallest residential skyscraper, Binghatti Tower will stand at a majestic 557m with 103 floors reaching for the clouds when completed in 2026. The brochure describes the “crown found at the highest altitude of the hypertower illuminating unrivalled opulence with its voluptuous and fascinating constructive display of the iconic and signature Jacob diamonds.”

World-renowned architectural and interior designer Roman Vnoukov executed the visionary design with inspiration and creative direction from Jacob Arabo. Their longstanding collaboration, spanning decades and numerous Jacob & Co. stores worldwide, ensures a harmonious blend of aesthetics and functionality.

Binghatti Tower is not just a residential haven; it’s a lifestyle statement. Exclusive amenities include a sophisticated café bar, a chef’s table, outdoor and indoor pools, pool bars, concierge and valet services, a private fitness club, serene sky gardens, and a spa. Additionally, penthouse residences will feature private elevators for direct access, ensuring privacy, convenience, and security for discerning residents.


The penthouses, ranging from quarter-floor to full-floor to expansive two-floor options, will provide unbelievable views of Dubai’s skyline and the iconic Burj Khalifa. They are named after Jacob & Co.’s celebrated timepieces, including the enchanting Astronomia Sky Penthouse and the crown jewel, the Billionaire Sky Penthouse.

There are also two- and three-bedroom suites, which boast the finest materials and exquisite finishes. Drawing inspiration from Jacob & Co.’s high jewellery and horology masterpieces, each residence is a testament to unparalleled luxury and elegance.

The driving force for the founder and chairman of Jacob & Co., Jacob Arabo, is creativity. The brand’s offering shows his insatiable desire to produce amazing pieces never seen before, a philosophy that applies to real estate construction too. He says he must create. “My dream has always been to invent things that haven’t been done before. For the brand, it’s about making the impossible reality.”

It’s no wonder then that the Binghatti ‘hypertower’ is full of unparalleled pioneering technological solutions and adorned with incomparable finishing techniques inspired by Jacob & Co’s horological and design philosophy.

Headquartered in New York City with watchmaking operations based in Geneva, Jacob & Co. is renowned for pushing the boundaries with innovative designs, high-performance mechanical timepieces, and out-of-this-world high jewellery.

Meanwhile, Binghatti has earned recognition with numerous international awards. The organisation’s commitment to groundbreaking architectural ventures and a modern design philosophy places brand character and quality at the forefront of its ethos.

The company’s project portfolio in Dubai, with an investment value exceeding AED 15 billion, spans prominent locations like Downtown, Business Bay, Jaddaf, Jumeirah Village Circle, Dubai Silicon Oasis, Liwan, and Dubailand Residence Complex. Each development reflects intricate design, offering clients and proprietors a sense of pride in owning a piece of Binghatti’s legacy in Dubai’s evolving skyline. The company’s hallmark is the rapid and reliable delivery of projects without compromising on quality.
