Dubai Sports City: Victory Heights Announces 100% Completion of Two Villages
Two out of the seven villages that make up the Victory Heights development in Dubai Sports City have seen 100 percent completion, the developers announced today – showing that real estate projects in Dubai are moving ahead despite last year’s economic downturn.
A total of 305 villas have been completed in the two villages of ‘Estella’ and ‘Carmen’, which account for the majority of the 350 villas already handed over to residents in the 961-unit Victory Heights development, a joint venture between Dubai Sports City and Bahrain-based Arcapita.
“The completion of 100 percent of the villas in these two villages is an important milestone in the delivery of the entire Victory Heights project,” said Yasser Abdulrahman Al Raee, General Manager at Victory Heights. “Both villages have their own distinct feel, Estella has a busier feel due to its location next to community centre, which once complete will be at the heart of the entire community. When the centre is finished early in 2010 we plan to host regular events for all residents, such as BBQs and family fun days.”
“In contrast, Carmen is an oasis of calm and tranquility. Situated right next to the Els Club golf course, it offers residents stunning views of the greens and lakes, giving the feeling of being completely away from it all,” Al Raee added.
The first phase of construction has been carried out by Al Jaber Group and L&T Western as part of a AED977 million contract that saw the first homes being handed over in early 2009.
“Victory Heights is one of the most impressive and sought after residential developments in Dubai, and Al Jaber Group and L&T Western have been an integral part of that success. We have worked together to deliver luxury villas, infrastructure, and facilities outlined in our project plans, and will continue to strive to ensure Victory Heights is a great place to live,” Al Raee said.
Due to its location within Dubai Sports City, residents in Victory Heights have easy access to a plethora of world-class sporting facilities, making it an ideal place for those who enjoy an active lifestyle.
As well as being surrounded by the award-winning18-hole Els Club golf course, the development is within walking distance of The Butch Harmon School of Golf, where both beginners and seasoned players can work on their game.
Just five minutes drive away is the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, where national and international cricket and football matches are played, while five Sporting Academies offering world-class coaching to children of all ages in football, hockey, rugby, swimming, and cricket are due to open in early 2010. “If you are into an active lifestyle and enjoy sports then Victory Heights really is the place to be. Everything you can think of in the sporting world is right on your doorstep,” confirmed Al Raee.
The villas in the development are built in three different styles; authentic Spanish Andalusian, bold Mediterranean, and classic European styles.
