The Burj Khalifa is now home to a new celebrity. This time it’s the leggy-lass Shilpa Shetty who supposedly is the latest celebrity resident at the world tallest building in Dubai. The Bollywood actress who shot to fame after winning Britian’s “Celebrity Big Brother” reality show was gifted the apartment on the 19th floor of Burj Khalifa, by none other than her husband, billionaire entrepreneur Raj Kundra, who presented the keys to the star for their first wedding anniversary last week.
The world’s most-prestigious address, the Residences at Burj Khalifa is truly designed for the connoisseur. Residents are offered an unparalleled lifestyle which includes state-of-the-art fitness facilities, indoor/outdoor swimming pools, a resident’s library, a cigar club, and the Burj Khalifa Gourmet Market. Also located within the tower is the first Armani Hotel Dubai
A source close to the actress who confirmed the news, added that Shetty herself would design the interiors of apartment. The couple also own luxurious £5million ($7.8 million) mansion in Weybridge.
Reports earlier said that apartments in Dubai’s most prestigious address are available now at 40 per cent less rentals than when the building opened 10 months ago. Sales prices in the Burj Khalifa are down to around $ 816.73 per square foot, as opposed to the earlier peak of up to $2,722.4 per square foot.
