Dubai-based Diamond Developers is looking to acquire land in Dubailand to launch its sustainable and affordable residential project by August, its CEO said.
"The project, comprising only apartment buildings, will offer sustainable features such as solar power and water recycling," Faris Saeed, co-founder and CEO of Diamond Developers, told Zawya Projects.
Saeed did not mention any details on the project cost and construction timelines.
Diamond Developers' The Sustainable City (TSC) project in Dubailand features 10 MW peak solar production and 100 percent water and waste recycling, according to the development's website.
In March, Diamond Developers had invited international diplomats to visit the final stage progress of Phase One of TSC.
The delegation comprised of 11 diplomats from eight embassies and consulates based in the UAE. This included Alastair Long from the British Embassy, HE Bogdan Kolarov and Dimitar Dimitrov from the Consulate of Bulgaria, and Charitha Yattogoda from the Consulate of Sri Lanka.
The first phase of the project comprised of the construction of a biodome greenhouse, a community mall, equestrian centre, as well as cycling and jogging tracks.
The developer will issue the main construction tender for a school building and a four-star resort in the second phase of the $300 million (AED1.1bn) TSC project in August, Zawya had reported earlier this month.
