Saudi Developer Brings Italian Flair to Dubai

Italy has long been heralded as one of the world’s leading style icons, and has on more than one occasion rubbed shoulders with Dubai on that front. A new residential project in the Business Bay district combines Dubai’s penchant for luxury apartments with a little Italian flair.  
 
The project is, quite fittingly, called I Love Florence, and is the latest addition to the impressive portfolio of leading Saudi developer Dar Al Arkan. Having constructed a number of residential units, office buildings and retail spaces across Riyadh and Jeddah, including the dazzling Al Qasr Mall, Dar Al Arkan has built up a sterling reputation for attractive and high quality projects. Understanding the value of location when it comes to real estate, it’s no surprise that the Dubai Canal was the location of choice for the firm’s first UAE development.

I Love Florence is a mid-rise apartment tower with 34 storeys of luxury residences and a podium spanning three levels. The apartments range from one to three bedrooms, plus a limited collection of four-bedroom sky units. As if the pedigree of the developer and beautiful waterfront location weren’t big enough draws in themselves, I Love Florence adds on another layer of prestige with its interior design.
 
Roberto Cavalli will be lending his signature style to the interiors of I Love Florence. The lauded Italian designer, whose boutiques grace every major shopping mall in Dubai, has already made his mark on the city with the Cavalli Club at the Fairmont Trade Centre, a destination for Dubai’s night owls who want to spend the twilight hours in the lap of luxury. Cavalli, who hails from Florence himself, will be showcasing his love for the city with a vibrant mix of classic and contemporary design that is ideally suited to Dubai’s dynamic lifestyle.
 
Luxury Bedroom
 
Business Bay is a growing destination for luxury urban living in the city and, since the opening of the Dubai Canal over a year ago, has rapidly become a premier waterfront district. Residents of Business Bay are treated to some of the city’s best views and an abundance of world-class entertainment options. Popular attractions such as La Perle by Dragone, the Dubai Mall, the Dubai Opera and the majestic Burj Khalifa are all located in very close proximity.
 
With an enviable location, authentic Italian style and chic contemporary design, I Love Florence is set to become a bold new address for luxury living in Dubai, and would be a prudent choice for investors as well. The project is expected to be completed in mid-2021.
