Omniyat on Tuesday disclosed that an anonymous buyer has scooped up the most expensive penthouse in Dubai for Dh102 million, beating the previous record price tag of Dh60 million.
Located at One Palm by Omniyat, the penthouse apartment was purchased on the condition of a very specific request. Despite One Palm offering three swimming pools, the buyer asked that a 20-metre long private lap pool be built on the rooftop of his penthouse, so that he could swim in private. Omniyat accommodated the request as it continued the project build. The pool will become one of the highest and most private swimming pools in Dubai upon completion.
Dubai is no stranger to ultra luxury property sales, with the previous record of the sale of a Dh60 million penthouse being held by a 14,000 square feet full-floor penthouse at Bvlgari Resorts & Residences on Jumeira Bay. This is followed by a penthouse on Fairmont the Palm that sold at Dh42 million in December 2012.
