Millennium Hotels and Resorts, Middle East and Africa (MEA), has signed an agreement with UAE based GJ Real Estate to develop The Biltmore Sufouh Residences in Dubai.

Located on the emirate’s arterial Sheikh Zayed Road, next to the Al Sufouh community, The Biltmore Sufouh Residences will have views of the coast, Burj Al Arab and the Palm Jumeirah.

Scheduled to open in 2025, the 44-floor development will have 408 one-, two- and three-bedroom residences.

The interiors will be designed by Gary Greene Design, who have also incorporated the Atmosphere Collection into the development, which are the exclusive penthouses on the top six floors of the skyscraper.

Residents of the project will have access to an Olympic size pool, kids’ pool, health club, gym, padel tennis courts, and a Zen Garden too.

Fahad Abdulrahim Kazim, chief executive officer of Millennium Hotels and Resorts MEA, said, “Our iconic Biltmore brand perfectly complements the vision for this luxury development, and we look forward to bringing the legendary Biltmore experience to life within these residences.

“We see great potential in the branded residences segment and Dubai is very much at the forefront of the exciting growth of this sector. This latest agreement continues to be in line with our development strategy to focus on expansion in key locations across the region.”

Ali Jaber, chief executive officer of GJ Real Estate added, “We are very proud to launch our first branded residences project in Dubai and delighted to partner with the iconic Biltmore brand. Sales of the residences will be exclusively handled by our real estate partners at AX Capital.”

Other major hospitality groups have also announced their plans to open branded residences projects in the UAE. Among them, Ennismore signed its first standalone branded residences project in Dubai in March. It reached an agreement with Dubai-headquartered real estate developer Roya Lifestyle Development to build the SLS Residences The Palm Dubai property. Set to open in 2026, SLS Residences The Palm Dubai will be housed in a newly built low-rise development offering approximately 113 luxurious branded residences comprising two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments.

In May, UAE-based hospitality brand Rove Hotels said that it too was entering the branded residential housing market with the launch of Rove Home. It said that its first project – Rove Home Aljada – will be a development located in Aljada, Sharjah.
