In a spectacular transaction, a breathtaking penthouse in Dubai has set a new standard for opulence with a price tag reaching nine figures, making it one of the most expensive penthouses globally and the costliest residence in the United Arab Emirates.
Perched atop the Como Residences skyscraper, this remarkable property fetched a staggering $136.2 million, a figure that astounds even in the luxurious surroundings of Palm Jumeirah, where the skyscraper stands tall. Among the 76 units within Como Residences, 26 are penthouses, and this particular unit not only claims the title of the largest but also carries the heftiest price tag.
Beyond being the most expensive penthouse in the building, this residence reigns as the priciest home in all of Dubai. While the core structure of the house is complete, the penthouse itself remains a canvas awaiting customization to fulfill the owner’s unique desires and specifications.
The allure of this property lies in its full customizability, a significant advantage that likely appealed to the discerning buyer. The tendency for high-end properties to come furnished with selections made by someone else can be a potential deal-breaker, a lesson learned from instances like Michael Jordan’s Chicago mansion, languishing on the market for over a decade.
Although the penthouse is currently unfinished, the fortunate owner will need to exercise patience until 2027 to take possession, as the developer dedicates the next three years to perfecting every detail. Despite the ongoing work, much of the impressive features showcased in the current visuals are expected to remain unchanged.
Situated on the 71st floor, this extraordinary Dubai penthouse offers a generous 21,900 square feet of living space, including five bedrooms, promising a lifestyle that epitomizes the pinnacle of luxury living in the vibrant cityscape of Dubai.
