Elton's Private Investment Gig in Paris
Pearl Dubai FZ LLC, a consortium of investors led by Al Fahim Group, rolled out a lavish trip to Paris for 150 investors, offering an exclusive preview of the design and décor of the Dhs2.5bn Baccarat Hotel and Residences project that will be completed at the Dubai Pearl development in 2011.
Complementing Dubai Pearl's status to offer the best-of-breed projects and quality, the invited guests were additionally treated to a private concert by legendary artist Sir Elton John after the unveiling of the Baccarat Residences
To be developed in association with the US-based Starwood Capital Group, the Baccarat Hotel and Residences at Dubai Pearl will reflect the ingenious handcrafted work of Baccarat, which boasts a lineage of 244 years in fashioning inspired crystal pieces of the highest quality.
Al Fahim added: 'Since 1764, Baccarat has built a reputation of providing elegant luxury products offering unparalleled beauty and flawless brilliance. The Baccarat Hotel and Residences will therefore front a new destination not only in Dubai, but in the Middle East as well.'
The Baccarat Hotel at the Dubai Pearl, located in the signature 73 storey, four tower heart of the project, will envelop over 800,000 square feet of space and be comprised of approximately 340 rooms. The Dhs1bn Baccarat Residences will feature elegantly designed apartments over the 300,000 sq. feet and clients have the option to do their space planning for their apartment if they so desire. Expansive swimming pools, roof gardens, crystal chandeliers and sweeping staircases will define both developments and set them apart as one of the most prestigious addresses in the whole of the Middle East.
