Vela & Vela Viento: Where Downtown Dubai Reaches Astonishing Heights

Perched along the glittering waters of Marasi Bay in Dubai, a new icon is set to grace the skyline – sister projects Vela and Vela Viento, the latest and possibly among the most ambitious endeavours by architecture giants Foster + Partners.

Comprising two towers soaring to the staggering heights of 150 and 180 metres respectively, ‘Vela’ and ‘Vela Viento’ (Latin for ‘Sail’ and ‘Wind’) are designed by Foster + Partners, with interior finesse styled by Gilles & Boissier. Residents will be treated to an elevated lifestyle, complemented by a spectacular sky amenity deck, ensuring unrivalled vistas of the surrounding cityscape.

The arrival experience, crafted by Lana Hotel developer Omniyat, promises drama and sophistication, setting the tone for a living experience curated by the renowned Dorchester Collection. Located in the centre of Marasi Bay, with direct promenade access, this residence, set to be complete in 2027, is poised to redefine luxury living in Dubai.

Vela, the shorter of the two skyscrapers, and rising to a height of 150 metres, comprises 38 apartments featuring lavish pools that envelop the terrace edges. Vela's amenities encompass an infinity pool, gym, spa and cinema.

In contrast, Vela Viento offers 92 residences, each carrying the allure of effortless indoor-outdoor living. Landscaped terraces extend the living space, while expansive glass facades showcase the breathtaking panoramas of Marasi Bay, Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai.

With private terrace pools gently beckoning, there is the invitation to bask in the warm sunlight. Select residences soar to new heights with double-height spaces, amplifying the sense of grandeur. The property offers suspended dining rooms – a breathtaking platform to savour culinary delights beneath the open sky.

Perhaps where Vela and Vela Viento most excel is in their endeavour to blend indoor and outdoor spaces, inviting the beauty of the surroundings into each residence. Grand landscaped terraces provide an enchanting retreat.

Gilles & Boissier, renowned for their exquisite interiors, bring a touch of Parisian chic to every corner. Fully-furnished by these design maestros, the interiors complement the architectural brilliance. With a private lift lobby for each residence, there is a heightened sense of exclusivity and convenience.

At such lofty heights, a range of amenities awaits, including an awe-inspiring infinity pool, a state-of-the-art gym, a serene yoga studio, a sun deck for relaxation and a communal lounge area – each providing a panoramic view of the city below.

At the podium level, there are indoor swimming pools for a refreshing midday dip, a wellness spa for rejuvenation and relaxation, while well-appointed meeting rooms cater to both professional and leisurely pursuits.
