Looking for new digs? Got a little cash to splash? Well, the penthouse at a yet-to-be-built development called One on Palm Jumeirah is up for grabs for a cool Dhs181 million, making it the most expensive apartment for sale in Dubai.

Listed by Omniyat Properties, the eight-bedroom, seven-bathroom penthouse comes equipped with twelve parking spaces and a total of 42,477 square feet – of which 16,641 is balcony area (that’s two-and-a-half tennis courts worth of balcony).

The apartment is currently being built by Omniyat and Drake & Scull International, and is scheduled for completion by 2017.

The 25-storey tower containing 90 apartments will come kitted out with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a cinema, a cigar lounge, luxury spa and yacht club.

Beforehand, one of the most expensive apartments in Dubai belonged to the Burj Khalifa, which sold for Dhs60 million (practically pocket money in comparison).

Which begs the question; would you rather three apartments in the world’s tallest building? Or one apartment with the same square footage as a full-sized football pitch?
