Emaar Is Ready For Cityscape Global

Global property developer Emaar Properties is showcasing its exceptional portfolio of mega-developments in Dubai and other international markets at Cityscape Global 2016, the premier property exhibition to be held from September 6 to 8, 2016, at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

A highlight of Emaar’s participation is the Vista Room that will feature a 270-degree LED screen displaying aerial videos of Dubai Creek Harbour, Dubai Hills Estate and Downtown Dubai, taking visitors through Emaar’s skyline defining developments in the city and the sheer scale of the mega-projects.

Emaar will display a spectacular model of The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour, the iconic new development that is at the heart of the 6 sqkm master-planned community, and is billed to define a new skyline for the city. Designed by Spanish/Swiss neo-futuristic architect, structural engineer, sculptor and painter Santiago Calatrava Valls, The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour serves as a beacon of hope and positivity for the nation and the city, and adds tremendous economic value to the residential developments in Dubai Creek Harbour.

Visitors to Emaar’s elegantly designed pavilion will have the opportunity to gain strong insights into Dubai Creek Harbour’s masterplan, the various residential developments that have been launched, and the unique position of The Tower, which is directly linked to a mega-retail district.

Featuring a world-class marina, a central park, a 4.5 km Creek Boardwalk, waterfront hospitality and luxury retailers, Dubai Creek Harbour is centrally located in Dubai by the historic creek. It is also in close proximity to the Ras Al Khor wildlife sanctuary, a biologically diverse wetland reserve and home to over 67 species of water birds protected under the UNESCO Ramsar Convention. Dubai Creek Harbour is only 10 minutes from the Dubai International Airport.

Additionally at this year’s Cityscape Global, Emaar will also showcase its mega-development Dubai Hills Estate, a joint venture with Meraas Holding. A green city within the city, Dubai Hills Estate is one of the most sought-after residential destinations in the city for its green lifestyle with homes set around a championship golf course.

Other iconic attractions at Emaar’s pavilion include Dubai Opera, a multi-format venue in the heart of The Opera District in Downtown Dubai that opens at the end of August. Dubai Opera’s spectacular architecture, inspired by Dubai’s maritime tradition, positions it on the league of globally renowned opera houses, and will be a cultural hub for the region hosting high-profile performances and events.

Also on showcase will be a new nearly 7 sqkm lifestyle development that is strategically located around a championship golf course. It will feature a mix of specially designed, new townhouses, villas and apartment concepts, set amidst green boulevards, walking and bicycle trails and community retailers, with significant F&B, medical and educational facilities within the community as well as two hotels.

The ongoing residential projects in Downtown Dubai and projects by Emaar’s international entities including Emaar Egypt, Emaar Turkey, Emaar Lebanon, Emaar Middle East and Emaar Morocco will also be highlighted at the pavilion.

Mudon Continues To Expand

Dubai Properties (DP) has announced that the Mudon project, a master-planned residential community in DUBAILAND, is currently undergoing a Phase 2 staged homeowner handover which is scheduled for completion by October 2016. The handover of close to 400 units will cater to the unprecedented customer demand for a unique and family-friendly residential environment.

According to the recent Dubai Pulse 2015 report, over 93.7% of Dubai residents consider the Emirate to be a suitable place for raising a family due to its state-of-the-art infrastructure and services. This survey emphasizes how the high quality of Dubai’s residential communities plays a decisive role in property decisions, and how communities like Mudon continue to be a key investment category for property buyers, especially end-users. Benefiting DP’s experience as a premier master developer, the exceptional master-planned community has set the benchmark for residential destinations across the Emirate.

Abdulla Abushabib, Senior Executive Director for Customer Care and Government Relations, DP, said: “We are excited to see Mudon flourish into a community that matches the cosmopolitan lifestyle, growing economy and progressive culture that makes Dubai one of the most attractive prospects for buyers coming from around the world. Since the complete handover of 398 units in Phase 1 in 2015, homeowners have enjoyed their spacious Arabic-themed villas and the extensive community and sporting facilities that make Mudon one of the most preferred residential neighborhoods in Dubai. With fantastic feedback from the residents in Phase 1, we are expecting similar results for Phase 2.”

The popularity of the Mudon community comes as no surprise as real estate portal Bayut.com has reported that DUBAILAND was the most popular neighborhood among users looking for rental villas in H1 2016, with the area receiving a majority 9.7% of all searches undertaken for Dubai rental villas on the website.

“A peaceful living environment with family-friendly community amenities, along with the overall quality of the design and build of the villas, was the key criteria when deciding where to invest in a home for our family,” said Serge Raould Tanga, who took over his villa in the Mudon neighborhood in 2015. “Mudon ticked all the boxes as we instantly fell in love with the aesthetics of our villa and the community is perfectly situated close enough to town to easily commute into work, while still being able to enjoy a lifestyle that complements the varied needs of all of our family members.”

The residential area in Mudon is complemented by a sprawling 64,000 sqft community center that hosts a supermarket, swimming pool and gym, tennis court, a medical clinic, children’s nursery and playground, and a variety of retail outlets and restaurants. Residents will also soon be able to enjoy the 41-acre Mudon Central Park with cycle and jogging paths, as well as the educational offerings at the GEMS school, which is currently under development.

According to Abdalla Alkhajil, a homeowner who lives in Phase 2 of the community with his family, the planned recreation and sporting facilities, and retail and F&B offerings at the Al Salam Town Center, were some of the main attractions behind their decision to set up home in the community. “As working parents, having a comprehensive community center, along with sports and leisure amenities at our fingertips, was important to us. Being able to take care of all of our shopping, childcare, recreation and healthcare needs a few minutes away from our home allows us to spend more quality time together as a family.”

The Mudon community is part of DUBAILAND, a Dubai Properties destination that is an evolving leisure, shopping and sports destination. As one of the leading master-planned residential and leisure destinations in Dubai, DUBAILAND is home to a number of Dubai’s leading attractions, including Global Village, Dubai Outlet Mall in Outlet City, the Autodrome in Motor City and the Cricket Stadium at Dubai Sports City, as well as 100,000 residents.
