UAE: Emaar unveils 15,000 homes in Dubai South
The golf district, spanning across nearly 700ha, will include over 15,000 homes and will be developed in four phases
Global developer Emaar Properties has announced its newest mega-development in Dubai South, Emaar South.
Interconnected through tree-lined boulevards, walking and bicycle trails, and a well-linked public transport network including autonomous vehicles for clean transport, the 700ha Emaar South will feature six districts anchored by an 18-hole championship golf course and clubhouse, a number of large community parks, dedicated retail precincts, three- and four-star hotels, assuring contemporary guest experiences, and a number of fascinating outdoor pursuits.
Residential choices include tiered townhomes, townhouses, golf villas, and apartments.
Other amenities that are incorporated in the masterplan include a K-12 educational institution by a premier provider and a golf villa recreational centre.
Promising an urban lifestyle at a suburban pace, the new master-planned community by Emaar is designed by the guiding principles of connectivity, accessibility, livability, sustainability and optimal residential density. The golf course has been designed to maximise golf frontage views from the villas, which includes luxury homes set in the heart of the golf course.
The project will be funded by equity, debt, and off-plan sales, according to Emaar chairman, Mohamed Alabbar.
Developed in four phases, the first phase of the project will be ready in four years, Alabbar said during the launch event.
The first homes in Emaar South will be announced shortly, offering investors the first opportunity to be part of the development.
However, Alabbar refused to reveal the expected cost of the project.
He further continued: "Emaar South is a thoughtfully planned project set in Dubai South, a purpose-built integrated urban city destination that creates a vibrant new economic platform centred on aviation and logistics services.
"The opportunities created by Dubai South will be complemented by Emaar's new golf-course district. Through Emaar South, we are creating another world-class integrated community that is smart and sustainable, and will generate long-term economic value. We are assigning the best-in-class designers, architects and consultants for this new residential city."
A model of the Emaar South will be displayed at Emaar’s pavilion in Cityscape Global 2016.
