Developers also planned on putting up two commercial areas in the former storage area, a coffee shop, and upmarket gallery.

The two-bedroom apartment is the cheapest according to the developer as the plushier options are retailed close to $100 million.
Buyers of the apartment will not just purchase a place to call their own but a piece of Titanic history and pride of living in a historic building. Aside from the features mentioned earlier, the purchasers of the Titanic’s home will also have access to a variety of amenities, including a 24-hour concierge service.
