JGE awards key Dubai residential project contract

DUBAI, June 8, 2017

Jumeirah Golf Estates (JGE) has signed up Progress Constructions, a leading regional construction company, as the main contractor for the townhouses and retail centre within its mid-market luxury residential community, Alandalus. 
 
Situated just 15 minutes from the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina and only minutes away from the site of Dubai Expo 2020 and Al Maktoum International Airport, JGE is home to the DP World Tour Championship and one of the Middle East’s premier residential and leisure destinations. It is well placed to provide an unforgettable experience for golfers at its two world-class Greg Norman-designed golf courses, Fire and Earth, and residents seeking quality, luxury homes and a peaceful setting within easy reach of Dubai’s top attractions, said the developer.  
 
A Mediterranean-inspired collection of affordable luxury apartments and townhouses, Alandalus is set on a 375-hectare area, 75 per cent of which is made up of lush green landscaping, with lakes and nature strips throughout. 
 
The Alandalus townhouses comprise 95 two- and three-bedroom homes inspired by Andalusian architecture. The retail centre sits at the heart of the Alandalus community, which also features 715 apartments, Jumeirah Golf Estates’ second clubhouse, and a hotel, altogether offering residents a variety of wellness, leisure and entertainment options, said the statement from the developer. 
 
Residential properties take up the remainder of the development, and considering that three-quarters of homes enjoy views of the championship golf courses, residents are promised an exceptional outdoor lifestyle experience.  
 
The awarding of the contract brings the Alandalus development a step closer to completion, and means the townhouses, located just minutes away from the site of Expo 2020, are on track for their scheduled handover commencing in September 2018, it stated. 
 
With prices starting from Dh1.3 million ($353,914), the Alandalus townhouses have set a benchmark in the high-demand, mid-market luxury segment in Dubai, said the statement. 
 
Townhouses in the first two phases sold out in just three hours, and JGE will launch the third phase later this year, it added. 
 
Jumeirah Golf Estates CEO Yousuf Kazim said the appointment of Progress Constructions to build the townhouses and retail centre is an exciting milestone for Alandalus.
 
"We launched the development targeting a niche segment in the Dubai market that we believe has yet to be catered to, offering luxury living choices with affordable prices. Introducing a new home concept to Dubai, the townhouses combine modern and traditional Andalusian materials with functional, sophisticated, comfortable indoor and outdoor spaces" he noted. 
 
"The strong demand seen for these townhouses underpins our reputation for bringing the right type of product to the market at the right price, without compromising on the layout and finishing, and within close proximity of the Expo 2020 site," stated Kazim. 
 
According to him, JGE has made remarkable progress in construction of Alandalus buildings thus far. 
 
"Considering the strong track record of Progress Constructions, we are confident that we will be equally effective in our delivery of the townhouses and retail centre for our investors," he added. 
 
On the contract win, Wsaam Al Ani, the managing director of Progress Constructions, said: "We are proud to have been awarded this contract by Jumeirah Golf Estates, which is testament to our expertise in the construction of prime residential developments."
 
"We execute each of our contracted projects to the highest possible standard, and are confident that we will deliver the same for Alandalus townhouses and retail centre, a community that will ultimately reinforce Jumeirah Golf Estates’ position as a destination of choice," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
