UAE group Merint launches luxury homes in India

DUBAI, June 6, 2018

UAE-based conglomerate Merint said its first exclusive residential project in India, 219 Boat Club, located at Pune in the western state of Maharashtra, is now ready for occupation. It boasts 10 super luxury boutique apartments, each with its own private pool.

Redefining luxury living and taking it to another level entirely, UAE-based conglomerate Merint has announced that its first exclusive residential project in India, 219 Boat Club, located at Pune in the western state of Maharashtra, is now ready for occupation.

Conceptualised and designed by Atkins, the architectural firm best known for the Burj Al Arab in the UAE, the meticulously-supervised project took almost four years to complete, said a senior official.

"A hidden sanctuary located in the heart of Pune, 219 Boat Club becomes the city’s most exclusive address. It has 10 super luxury boutique apartments, each with its own private pool. The living room and terrace heights are over 22 ft, giving it the feel of a sky villa," stated Fazal Manekia, the founder and CEO of Merint.  

Every floor is designed to capture an abundance of natural light and glass, an architectural feat that further accentuates the sprawling 8,000 sq ft space in every unit, he noted.

"The rapid pace of urbanisation coupled with India’s increasing attractiveness to NRIs seeking tangible options to invest in, has led to a marked growth in interest for high-end luxury housing," he added.

"We recognise this trend and were always keen to ride the wave but not through just another residential tower,"  remarked Manekia.

"We did not desire to make promises; we wished to deliver a dream! These ‘dreams’ are being delivered at a price of around $3 million each," he stated.

Surrounded by over-100-year-old trees, 219 Boat Club has a cinema room and, a state-of-the-art gymnasium and rooftop terrace with stunning views of the Mula Mutha  river.

"219 Boat Club combines the world’s most exclusive glass with unparalleled and exquisite design aesthetics to create an incomparable home which is certain to resonate with the most discerning of home buyers," he noted.

"For those who enjoy the finest things in life, there is access to impressive height, incomparable space and incredible views.  The lobby has a glass sculpture made up of 275 hand-blown LED lights that creates a sense of movement and is a true visual delight in the era of modern art.  An impressive entrance canopy with a six meter ‘Diamant’ glass entrance makes a powerful and unforgettable first impression," he noted.

Close on the heels of this project, Merint plans to invest around $100 million to develop a luxury villa project in the hills overlooking lakes and valleys near Lonavla, a hill station between the metro cities of Pune and Mumbai.

A total of 280 acres of land has already been acquired for the project, revealed Manekia.

Ayesha Contractor, the senior project manager at Atkins, said: "Firmly founded on the codes of enhanced living, contemporary minimalism and clarity of detail, each element of 219 Boat Club has been sculpted and selected to create a customized canvas of experience."

"This architectural marvel for the privileged few transforms the city’s skyline and captures the essence of larger than life living," she added.-TradeArabia News Service
