High-rise living has never looked so good. Step inside Omniyat’s newest venture, The Sterling, and prepare to be dazzled.
When it comes to apartment living, Dubai is a city in a league of its own. A gleaming metropolis of soaring towers hindered only by the limits of architect imaginations (and gravity), it offers investors and residents alike an unbeatable assortment of high-rise living styles, including award-winning residential developments that have cemented the region’s reputation for daring architecture and design. And yet, prepare to be dazzled anew as you step inside Omniyat’s latest project, and rediscover how the high-rise genre has been spectacularly redefined.
Located in the very heart of Business Bay in the Burj Khalifa District, The Sterling offers residents one of the most sought-after locations in all of Dubai. Within close proximity to the city’s new heart, and with easy access to all of Dubai’s main roads and centres of leisure and business, the area has been experiencing a second wave of development recently, in tandem with the new creek-side development that will completely transform and reshape the coastline – how very Dubai.
The building itself is actually two and comprises two towers (the ‘East’ and ‘West’) that reach for the sky in a symphony of silver and chrome.
Twenty-five floors high, the buildings boast superior ameneties throughout, and a fourth floor dedicated to upscale leisure such as a pool deck, spa and landscaped gardens (yes, you read that last one right). And, in a bid to conserve resources in an environment that requires high energy use for cooling, The Sterling is constructed in an orientation that minimises the building’s exposure to daylight.
Inside, the residences are divided into studios, one or two bedroom apartments and a series of premium offerings: penthouses and townhouses, as well as serviced residences.
Reflecting the developer’s previous projects, the focus at The Sterling is on innovation coupled with seamless style. An understated palette is in place throughout, neutral enough to allow the new owner to put his or her personal touch in place with minimum effort.
Luxury finishes come as standard, from stone and marble floors and surfaces, to high-end bathroom fittings from brands such as Grohe and Duravit. Doors and windows are made of solid timber,
There’s a sense of lightness and freedom in even the most modest of the units; this is in no small part due to the generous proportions of glorious floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe the rooms with light during the day, while revealing the twinkling neon cityscape of Dubai as the sun sets beyong the horizon.
The interiors are the work of Steve Leung, an award-winning design and architectural practice whose portfolio of previous work includes the interiors of residential and commercial properties, as well as hotels and restaurants.
Steve Leung’s minimalist yet luxurious approach to design — espoused by its eponymous founder — is vividly apparent throughout The Sterling’s sleek, marble-clad interiors. A soaring lobby entrance greets visitors, making a bold yet discreet statement of elegant refinement, and yet, as grand as the first impression, living here is ultimately designed to feel like home. To that end, the developers have considered the two towers as a community, and ensured that the beauty of the building is far from impersonal or distant. The Sterling is about enjoying the best that life has to offer – from the calm, inviting blue of the swimming pools, to cosy lounge areas, elevated shared gardens, state-of-the-art gyms and spa areas. The Sterling makes you feel as if you are getting the best of a five-star hotel, but with a sense of home at the very heart.
