Ibn Battuta just doesn’t seem to stop growing.

They’ve only recently revealed their plans for the mall’s expansion, and the walkway from the Metro to the shops has only just opened. Well now the latest announcement is that the Ibn Battuta residences are coming – a new twin tower complex with 531 luxury apartments.

Why? Well it seems the good folk at Nakheel thought the Jebel Ali skyline was looking a little dull, and it was time to kit it out with two 48-floor buildings.

Move on, Seven Tides – there’s a cooler-looking building in town.

Inside you’ll find 395 two-bed apartments and 136 three-bed, some of which come equipped with a balcony and a maid’s room.

There’ll also be a podium-level health and recreation complex, complete with adult and kids’ pools and a gym.

Downstairs, you’ll find four levels of parking.

If you love a good mall trawl and a snazzy sea-view, you’re in luck. Ibn Battuta Residences are within walking distance of the mall and the park with a view of the ocean.

The expected completion date for the apartment buildings is in Q4 2019. So don’t worry, you’ve got a bit of time to decide whether Ibn Battuta Residences is for you.

The two towers were unveiled at Cityscape Dubai, an annual construction convention at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Ibn Battuta Residences were the second luxury project by Nakheel to be revealed at Cityscape. The other was Palm 360 – a twin-tower hotel and luxury apartment complex on the Palm Jumeirah which includes a bundle of 12,000 square foot (golly that’s large) residential penthouses.
