Limitless, the global master development arm of Dubai World, has burst onto the property scene in Jordan with Limitless Towers in Amman: iconic, residential towers topping 200 metres – the tallest in the country and among the highest twin buildings in the Middle East.
Limitless Towers – to be constructed in the Abdoun area of Amman – will reshape the skyline of the capital and marks the beginning of the city’s urban development plan, led by the Greater Amman Municipality. Mayor Maani of Amman talked about the importance of this project by saying that “…we took great care in selecting the location for towers within Amman, and this project is the beginning of a new era that will ensure major developments complement our unique cityscape and is serviced with proper transportation access, including public transit. In addition, this particular development helps to green the city in that it is located within a parkway setting …it is also part of our initiative to develop a pedestrian friendly city.”
Unveiling the US$300 million project, Saeed Ahmed Saeed, CEO of Limitless, said: “Limitless Towers is an architectural wonder that sets new standards in iconic, sustainable building design. What better way for us to enter Jordan than with this record breaking development that will add a new dimension to the country’s real estate offering?”
Limitless Towers will feature the world’s highest suspended swimming pool – 125 metres above the city – connecting the two towers. The glass-bottomed pool – accessed from the 40th storey of each building – will provide a bird’s-eye view of Amman and the surrounding landscape.
Designed to meet world environmental standards, Limitless Towers will also be the first ‘green’ building in Jordan, adopting a host of eco-friendly initiatives in its design, construction and maintenance, including innovative energy-saving techniques and water recycling systems to ensure it receives LEED accreditation.
In addition, a stone screen on the building façade, will ensure that the towers blend with the rich heritage of Amman.
Limitless Towers will be up to 60 storeys high with more than 550 residential units, providing luxury accommodation for almost 2,000 people. There will also be a 1,000 square metre indoor plaza, with retail, entertainment and leisure facilities, as well as extensive outdoor space – a hallmark of all Limitless developments – spanning around 5,600 square metres.
The launch of Limitless Towers comes just three weeks after Limitless announced new, Amman-based operations for Jordan, where the company is planning more projects to add to its rapidly expanding global portfolio.
Saeed Ahmed Saeed said: “Jordan’s fast-growing economy, changing real estate requirements, convenient location and stability make it a firm favourite in our list of markets. Limitless Towers is the first of several distinctive, sustainable projects currently being assessed by our Jordan team.”
Work on Limitless Towers is due to begin in October 2008 and will take around three years to complete.
