Abu Dhabi’s leading real estate developer, Sorouh Real Estate, announced the start of construction of its AED 729 million project, Golf Gardens. Overlooking Abu Dhabi Golf Club, the 347,000 square meter development will feature 390 luxurious residential villas and townhouses with occupancy slated for the last quarter of 2008.
“The Golf Gardens will be the first commercial venture in Abu Dhabi to combine golf and real estate. With its beautiful villas and town houses overlooking the golf course, the Golf Gardens will raise the level of residential property in Abu Dhabi,” said Mounir Haidar, CEO of Sorouh Real Estate. “This project will provide an alternative suburban lifestyle, as it offers residents a living environment that promotes an overall sense of well-being - by providing for physical, intellectual, spiritual and social needs. In short, it will provide life in perfect balance.”
The Golf Gardens will have a self-supporting infrastructure including convenience stores and a well-developed recreational element, with the Golf Gardens Club located in the heart of the development. The club will feature high-end restaurants, state-of-the-art health and fitness centers, large swimming pools, tennis and squash courts and beautiful parks and gardens.
There will be a range of residential options for buyers to choose from. The Golf Gardens will boast four separate styles of villas with swimming pools – Orchid, Lailak, Narjis and Gardenia – which will range from six to three bedrooms with built up area ranging from 575 to 235 square metres. In addition, two styles of townhouses – Jouri and Khuzama –are also available. These offer four and three bedrooms respectively, with built up area ranging from 300 to 235 square metres.
“PIVOT Engineering & General Contracting Co was selected from 8 companies who submitted bids for the Golf Gardens. The project is designed and supervised by the international multi-disciplinary company OTAK and managed by the Australian Snowy Mountain Engineering Corporation (S.M.E.C.). This reflects Sorouh’s stringent policy which prioritized corporate credentials and an innovative approach to construction” added Haidar.
