Launched in March 2018 and scheduled for delivery in Q1 2020, Jewelz is located on a plot adjacent to the park with a private entrance leading to the property.
Danube said the building’s design and architectural aesthetic was created to “reinforce the design strategy of Danube, which helps maximise the living space while delivering convenience of community living”.
Amenities include a fully equipped health club, swimming pool, steam and sauna room, multi-purpose hall, jogging track, barbecue deck, badminton court, paddle tennis court, and a high-tech surveillance system.
Speaking on the news, Rizwan Sajan, founder and chairman of Danube Group, said: “Through our successful property launch and construction delivery we want to reinforce the belief in the real estate industry of Dubai, which remains one of the most lucrative real estate investment opportunities worldwide.
“The awarding of the main construction contract within seven months of the launch of the project reflects our strong commitment to our customers,” he added. “Following the commercial launch of properties and subsequent sell-out, Danube usually starts tendering for the construction of the project, before launching the next project.”
