Real estate investors in search of a community replete with residential options for lease and sale, modern conveniences, spectacular vistas, and peace and quiet may consider looking at Reem Island in Abu Dhabi.
Located in the city, but not quite at the center, the island provides homeowners the privacy that is lacking in most communities located within a buzzing metropolis. Littered with a menagerie of towers offering houses for different budgets, investors will surely be spoilt for choice here.
The Gate Towers is one of the residential destinations on the island. Part of the Shams Abu Dhabi development, it is composed of three towers and the Arc, giving residents the complete residential-leisure-shopping package. Its residential choices range from studio to four-bedroom units spread as apartments, townhouses and duplex penthouses. Facilities and amenities include swimming pools, saunas, Jacuzzis, squash and tennis courts, gyms, play areas for children and recreational areas, among others.
The mixed-use Beach Towers is another Shams Abu Dhabi project. It consists of two buildings that boast luxury residences and offices. Housing options offered range from one-bedroom to four-bedroom units with modern facilities such as a health club, gyms, swimming pools, parking areas, parks and gardens.
Marina Bay at the City of Lights development is another residential address on the island. It offers studio to three-bedroom apartments that provide residents with spectacular views of the water and the entire city.
At the core of the Marina Square development is Marina Heights, which boasts spacious two and three-bedroom flats and five-bedroom penthouses specifically created for the most discerning of property investors. With massive balconies as added feature, these homes allow residents to wake up to magnificent views of the marina and the island itself. Facilities include a recreation area, fitness venues, 24-hour security and parking areas.
There are other residential offerings scattered all over the island, which is also dotted with dining outlets. Boutik Mall serves the residents’ retail needs. Families with kids may send their children to Repton School and Paris-Sorbonne University, among others. Overall, Reem Island can be considered a “one-stop shop” for one’s residential needs.
