Zen takes shape

February 2016

Indigo Properties has commissioned China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) to work on the show villas at Indigo Zen, its exclusive luxury residential development in Dubai, UAE.

The contracting company, which is claimed to be the world’s largest housing construction contracting company, has started work on four show villas for the project, which is targeted for completion by June 2018.

CSCEC Middle East, a major overseas operational entity of the Chinese firm, has worked on some of the most iconic projects in the region, including the Nad Al Sheba Racecourse, The Palm Jumeirah  Villas-Garden Homes, Sheikh Khalifa Specialist Hospital, Abu Dhabi International Airport Midfield Terminal Building (structural steel works), City of Lights, Al Hikma Tower, Doha Tower and Central Bank of Kuwait hew headquarters and several impressive projects in the UAE and Middle East.

Commenting on the award, Dev Maitra, CEO of Dubai-based Indigo Properties, says: “We are very pleased to bring CSEC Middle East on board to work on the show villas on our Zen development. The company has an impressive portfolio of projects in China and the Middle East, including the UAE. It has worked with government and private companies on residential, hospitality and infrastructure projects. Work has begun on the villas and we expect them to be completed in about six months.”

Inspired by the finest communities and resorts in Southeast Asia and across the world, Zen exemplifies a relaxed lifestyle in a lush, tropical paradise, Maitra says. The 346-villa project will include waterways, meditation zones, and lush greenery when complete.

The development, spread across 4.5 million sq ft of land in Dubai Golf City, will also include retail areas, clubhouses, and pavilions with covered outdoor seating. The community comprises four-, five- and six-bedroom villas and three-bedroom townhouses, ranging in size from 4,000 to 10,000 sq ft.

Indigo Properties has completed construction and handover of more than 1.5 million sq ft of property in Dubai, with more in the pipeline. Its other projects include the 68-villa ‘Orange Lake’ development located in Jumeirah Golf Estates; Indigo Ville, a 117-townhouse development situated in Jumeirah Village Circle; and Indigo Spectrum One and Indigo Optima, two buildings located in International City.
