Anwa by Omniyat has been in hot demand
LEADING UAE developer Omniyat Group says 81 per cent of the units in its Anwa by Omniyat project in Dubai, UAE, have been sold within a week of launching sales.
The group last month broke ground on the Dh600-million ($163.3 million) project in Dubai Maritime City, having appointed Kele as the main contractor and Al Ghurair Contracting and Engineering Works as the specialist contractor for piling works.
The project is scheduled to be handed over by the first quarter of 2016.
Present at the ground-breaking ceremony were Khamis Juma Buamim, chairman, Dubai Maritime City and Mahdi Amjad, Omniyat Group’s executive chairman and CEO, along with other senior officials from Dubai Maritime City and Omniyat Group.
Featuring sweeping views of the ocean from every floor, Anwa by Omniyat will offer 225 units, incorporating 29 studios, 80 one-bedroom, 87 two-bedroom and 23 three-bedroom apartments, one penthouse and five townhouses. It will also have 8,133 sq ft of retail area as well as landscaped gardens, gymnasium, an infinity pool, children’s pool and play area and barbecue area.
The project has been designed to recreate the glory days of trans-ocean cruising marked by glitz, glamour and art deco of the 20s and 30s, according to Omniyat.
Amjad says Anwa has been designed for those with exquisite taste and who aspire for ultimate elegance and exclusive living.
“Dubai is a city of dreams and it is the place where scale meets imagination. We have created Anwa by Omniyat to offer a style of living never seen before in this part of the world. Omniyat will live up to its promise of delivering one of the most innovative projects of our time. It represents a big-time investment opportunity for investors,” he adds.
Amjad says through the project, Omniyat is not just developing a dynamic, sea-facing zone, but introducing a concept that guarantees a totally new experience in opulence, distinguished by standout elevation and lavish interiors. It will be Dubai Maritime City’s foremost residential project.
Located right next to the marina and the beautiful boardwalk, Anwa is positioned on the same strip as the Four Seasons and the Bulgari hotels. It offers residential apartments, all with sea views, some with views of Deira Islands and Jumeirah on two sides.
Amjad adds: “Earlier, we succeeded in bringing a slice of Miami to Dubai through the new design of The Pad tower in Burj Khalifa District. With Anwa, we aim to bring a piece of the past into the glamorous modern surroundings of the emirate.”
The development group says it has registered Dh432 million ($118 million) in sales for this seafront project. It also indicates that only a limited number of the upper floors of the ground plus 44 storeys remain available in addition to five town houses that were not released for sale.
Commenting on the project, Buamim says: “Anwa by Omniyat will play a key role in positioning Dubai Maritime City as an ideal location for modern living with a perfect work-life balance. Anwa will be a key component of Dubai Maritime City offering an ideal living experience by the sea.”
Principally located towards the east of Dubai between Port Rashid and Dubai Dry Docks, Dubai Maritime City is situated in close proximity to Jumeirah Beach Road (1 km), Sheikh Zayed Road (3 km), and the Dubai International Airport (10 km). It is just 15 minutes away from Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall.
Dubai Maritime City will have 53 mixed-use projects, hotels, shopping malls, restaurants and 10 fascinating parks.
Elaborating on the marine destination, Buamim says: “Dubai Maritime City will also incorporate retail spaces and offices. The Business District will have a 3,200-m-long boardwalk with dedicated jogging and cycling tracks. Moreover, there will be world-class berths for boats. The Marine District will house some of the largest yacht manufacturers from Europe and the Middle East and leading spare parts suppliers and repair centres.”
A new bridge will connect Bur Dubai to the Dubai Maritime City Business District, and a tram line will link the whole Business District. A multilevel car park will be developed, along valet parking zones. All basic infrastructure, including (Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) substations, have been completed, according to the developer.
