Becks wants to live in the worlds tallest buildingJanuary 5th, 2009 - 6:33 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan.5 (ANI): England football idol Becks is eyeing an Armani-designed apartment in the Burj Dubai tower, which is likely to set him back by five million pounds.
Representatives of the owners of the tower have reportedly approached him, says the Daily Star.
Even though it is still under construction, the giant skyscraper in the United Arab Emirates has already reached 780 metres high, making it the tallest building in the world.
By the time 33-year-old Becks is able to move in it is likely to have soared to around 820m. By comparison Londons Canary Wharf tower, which is Britains tallest skyscraper, is just 235m.
When the Burj is completed, designers from Italian fashion house Armani for whom Becks advertises underwear will kit out 144 apartments in the building.
Each will be up to 200 square metres in size, twice the size of the average UK family home.
And Armani experts say they will fully furnish the luxury rooms having given the owners a choice of styles and colours.
The Nakheel Group is erecting the luxury Burj building. They also own the Palm resort in Dubai where Beckham already has a villa.
Beckham is currently in Dubai on a tour with Italian giants AC Milan, who he is playing for while his US team, LA Galaxy, are in their off-season.
While his team-mates are staying at the plush Park Hyatt Hotel, he and wife Victoria are in their luxury villa on the Palm Jumeirah complex with their three sons.
On Saturday night David and his colleagues had a bonding meal in a reserved suite while Victoria and other AC Milan WAGs were in a restaurant at the hotel. (ANI)
