Luxury lifestyle provider DAMAC Properties has announced that the structure of it Tuscan Residences Mediterranean style development at Jumeirah Village South has been completed.


This brings the total number of projects that DAMAC Properties has completed structurally this year to six – and is the third of its project to be completed at the expanding Nakheel Master development on the Emirates Road.


Tuscan Residences is a low rise complex comprising three separate buildings all finished in either Mediterranean or Arabic styling and is due for completion next summer. With the external structure now completed, the main contractor, Square General, are concentrating on the facade which will have decorative stone cladding as well as working on the interior blockwork, plastering and tiling.


In addition to Tuscan, the company has its Emirates Gardens development at Jumeirah Village where Phase One is undergoing snagging works inside and Phase Two is being finished off with electrical work and elevator installations. DAMAC Properties has also completed structures this year at its XL Tower and Business Tower developments at Business Bay, Smart Heights at TECOM and Lago Vista at IMPZ.


Commenting on the progress at all the Jumeirah Village projects, General Manager of DAMAC Properties, Ziad El Chaar said: ‘Tuscan Residences will be a stunning development when it is completed – the low rise courtyard type design with terraces and balconies really sets off its Mediterranean style architecture and finishing.


“We are pleased to see that this third project in Jumeirah Village has completed its external structure and even prouder that this brings us to a total of six for DAMAC in 2009.


The amount of effort and planning that goes into the physical construction of a building is huge and to have completed six projects in just this year alone is a great testament to our contractors and the ongoing working relationship we have with each of them.’


Mr Chaar added that the upcoming completion of Park Towers at DIFC and Ocean Heights at Dubai Marina before the end of 2009 would also further strengthen the message on progress by DAMAC Properties. In addition he confirmed that new main contracts would also be awarded by the end of the year for further developments.


‘We knew that keeping our focus on those buildings already under construction would help us to deal with some of the tough challenges we have faced over the recent months and it has undoubtedly proved to be the case. In addition we felt that going ahead and meeting our construction plans will leave us in a stronger position when the market eventually recovers,’ he said.


“We made our commitment very clear at the beginning of this year that we would be focusing on construction and delivery and by working closely with our contractors we have made great efforts to ensure that we have achieved this target.’
