Meraas unveils first community at La Mer

October 2018

Leading UAE developer Meraas has announced the launch of a new residential neighbourhood at La Mer, a Dubai beachfront destination that boasts a unique mix of shopping, dining, leisure, entertainment, hospitality and residential options.

Unveiling the details of the new unit, Meraas said Port de La Mer will be located at the tip of the North Peninsula at La Mer. Inspired by the allure of the Mediterranean, the exclusive freehold community will include apartments designed with a timeless aesthetic, the first of which have been released to the market, as well as a 192-berth superyacht marina.

The Port de la Mer masterplan has been designed to offer a charming marina and waterfront lifestyle that appeals to families around the world. The private residential community will comprise one- to four-bedroom apartments with sea views, pastel-hued exteriors and verdant greenery that cascades down from each balcony to the rich blue marina beneath, said Meraas.

Boasting terracotta rooflines and whitewashed stonework, the tranquil waterfront will feature a range of fashionable boutiques and restaurants, set in bustling piazzas. It will also include a selection of four- and five-star hotels and a private beach, it added.

According to group chairman Abdulla Al Habbai, work is already under way on the first properties at Port de La Mer in an area called La Côte, comprising 400 tastefully appointed apartments and a two-storey penthouse in an exclusive collection of five low-rise buildings. Each apartment will benefit from a contemporary design and spacious open-plan layouts, panoramic views of the sea and marina as well as quiet pedestrian streets, he stated.

Modern interior design philosophies will be applied for the apartments at Port de La Mer, evoking a sense of openness and individuality. The homes will maximise the use of natural light, while enhancing a feeling of connectedness between the indoor spaces and the panoramic sea views outside, he added.

Meraas pointed out that the buildings will integrate sleek, high-quality materials and endorse best-in-class international standards with meticulous attention to detail.

The residences will combine modern architecture and interior design with a range of world-class amenities, including several large swimming pools, gyms, a private beach and a marina. Building podiums and bridges will help knit this picturesque setting together and allow residents to move freely through open spaces, while controlled vehicle access ensures a safe playing environment for children, said the developer.
