Farglory Group's Maryah Plaza Development, Abu Dhabi

Farglory Group, one of the largest real estate developers in Asia, is preparing to release more ultra-prime units in its luxury development Maryah Plaza. The much-awaited event is in anticipation of demand in the second half of 2015 and will cater to investor and end-user preferences.

“Maryah Plaza’s initial launch was well received by domestic and international buyers. We have been listening closely to the market and have accommodated our unit designs to satisfy growing demand,” said Jack Hu, managing director of Farglory Middle East.

Maryah Plaza, located in Al Maryah Island’s new financial free zone, is the product of world-famous architect Lord Richard Rogers who is known for designing projects across the world such as London’s One Hyde Park and the Pompidou Centre in Paris. Maryah Plaza represents the architect’s first-ever project in the Middle East.

“We envisioned Maryah Plaza as a new emerging global icon and a benchmark for luxury,” said Hu. “That’s why we commissioned Lord Richard Rogers, one of the world’s greatest architects. Together we are building a new architectural landmark that will help to shape Abu Dhabi’s skyline on Al Maryah Island.”

Stationed at the waterfront, Maryah Plaza is a mixed-use development consisting of four steel towers. The largest tower will house offices, serviced apartments, and a boutique hotel. At ground level there will be restaurants, cafes, and shops.

Amenities include a clubhouse, zero-edge infinity pool, spa, gymnasium, and an outdoor art gallery with manicured green space.

“With the current positive growth outlook for Farglory in all its key markets, we are committed to fulfilling the market’s appetite for ultra-high-end property in the UAE’s capital city and exploring opportunities to match demand,” Hu said.

A silver sponsor at this year’s Cityscape Abu Dhabi, Farglory Group is a Taiwanese conglomerate established in 1969 with a portfolio of over 15 billion dollars. Farglory Group has completed over 700 projects across the world including China, the United States, Western Europe, and the Far East.

Ajman’s premier waterfront and organically connected lifestyle development project, Al Zorah has invested over AED 500 million in infrastructure, with the awarding of an AED 115 million contract for the final stage of Phase 1 infrastructure works. With the initial stages of infrastructure development already completed, the new contract to AIMS Group covers the rest of the road and utility networks to support all Phase one components of the premiere destination. The work is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of this year.

Located along the breathtaking natural peninsula on the coastline of Ajman, the flagship project of Al Zorah Development Company is spread over an area of 5.4 million sqm. Set apart from other destinations by its exotic setting of natural mangroves and seafront, Al Zorah blends the best of nature with the finest in modern amenities to create refined places for life. A freehold development encompassing 12 kms of waterfront, 1.6 kms of sandy beaches and a 700,000 sqm golf course, Al Zorah is slowly rising up from the ground to create unprecedented communal living at its best.

The first phase of the AED 2 billion development will welcome its first residents later this year. The key components that will provide a refreshing and vibrant lifestyle for residents and visitors include: a Beach Resort operated by Oberoi, a Beach Resort operated by Lux, an 18-hole Golf Course by Nicklaus Design, 42 premium residential villas on the golf course, serviced residential apartments, and The Pavilion, Al Zorah’s sales center.

The Phase 1 infrastructure works included the design, earthworks, work on four marinas that can accommodate over 200 boats, the 18-hole championship golf course, highway linking Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road to Al Zorah, the entire road and utility network, bridge, and water edge protection across 3.5 km of waterfront.

Imad Dana, Chief Executive Officer of Al Zorah Development Company, said: “The foundations of the success of any property development project spread over such a large area like Al Zorah, is dependent on the connectivity of its individual components.

“We are committed to the comforts of our future residents right from the start and we are ensuring that the entire project is geared to provide a holistic lifestyle from day one when people move in. Al Zorah is all about creating that special value for our investors and we can see that vision coming to life already.”
