An Abu Dhabi real estate developer has built a series of luxury mock-up villa homes to preview a new property development designed to house professional workers.
Sorouh Real Estate said the ninth mock up villa at the site of Alghadeer Sorouh was part of a process to choose a building contractor for the project.
Executives said they will be looking at environmental features of the homes, which have been designed by teams of sustainability experts to help the company decide how the final properties will look.
Alghadeer Sorouh is a 3 million sq m homes development with ‘investment zone’ status on the border between Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
The plan is also part of the wider Saih As Sidirah regional real estate master development.
Samer Abu Hijleh, chief operations officer of Sorouh Real Estate said: “We believe an investment in Alghadeer Sorouh is an investment in a new mode of living for a new breed of commuter. We are working hard on solutions to guarantee the ongoing appeal of the project.
“With enabling works on track we are fully committed to delivering the first homes at Alghadeer Sorouh on schedule in 2012.”
The completed real estate project will feature hills and valleys, waterways, lakes and parks in an effort to “bring together nature and urban living”. Earlier this week consultants Jones Lang LaSalle said the middle east’s real estate market is seeing signs of recovery, although prices will continue to fall in the short-term.
