Developer also reveals new affordable homes for lease Dubai Properties (DP) has launched a new project in Dubailand called Villanova, which offers Dubai’s first “cluster homes” along with standalone villas. The company said Villanova represents a new living concept that targets the flourishing affordable housing segment.
The Mediterranean and Portuguese-inspired cluster homes offer a combination of two clusters with four different affordable unit types arranged within an enclosed court, with each unit having its own private backyard. There are a total of eight units within each cluster and two sub-cluster homes with four units each. The Villanova community is arranged as smaller neighborhoods of 150-250 units sharing common community facilities such as a pool house, children’s playgrounds and sports facilities.
“As one of the most sought-after residential and lifestyle destinations in the Emirate, Dubailand is the perfect locality to house our latest and most unique residential housing concept — cluster homes,” said Marwan Al Kindi, Executive Director — Sales and Sales Operations at Dubai Properties. “Villanova is testament that by continuously shaping our product offering through quality and innovation, DP is committed to creating exceptional and integrated lifestyle experiences in response to verifiable market needs that enrich the lives of residents and visitors alike.”
The gated neighborhood will have two- and three-bedroom cluster homes and three-, four- and five-bedroom standalone villas, all of which will include full amenities such as maid’s room, storage, laundry and shaded carports. The homes are set amid lush gardens with walking and bike trails, outdoor pools and picnic, barbecue areas, recreation areas, mosques, retail outlets and outdoor seating areas.
Meanwhile, DP also announced 18 new buildings available for lease in Remraam. The developer said the 18 new buildings, which contain 1,441 units, are now 90 per cent complete. Some 60 buildings have already been handed over in the Remraam development. All new buildings, as well as the development’s second community centre, are set for full completion and handover by the fourth quarter of next year.
DP said its strategy of addressing the high demand for affordable housing is in line with the proposed law by the Dubai Municipality for mandatory 15-20 per cent affordable housing in future residential developments.
“Dubai Properties is committed to addressing the increasing need for affordable housing in Dubai, and these new buildings and the additional community centre are in line with our strategy to meet this evident socioeconomic demand,” said Sahar Al Ansari, Senior Executive Director Residential Asset Management of Dubai Properties.
