Nakheel will start selling townhouses at Warsan Village, a new community in Dubai with nearly 1,200 homes, on Sunday, the developer has announced.
Warsan Village, set on a 47.5 hectare site on the south-west side of International City, will include a gated community of 942 townhouses, as well as a recreation centre, mosque and 250 apartments set above a retail plaza with 365 outlets.
Construction of Warsan Village is expected to begin in Q1 2014 and to be completed in 20 months.
The three-bedroom townhomes, starting from AED1.7m with a three-year payment plan, each span 2,013 sq ft and come with a maid's room, three bathrooms, powder room, two balconies, private garden and parking for two cars, Nakheel said in a statement.
Ali Rashid Lootah, Nakheel chairman, said: "Our townhouses are a natural progression for the area and will bringing a completely new style of living to this already hugely-popular community. We anticipate a very healthy response to the launch of the townhomes - and to the residential and retail leasing opportunities on offer at this unique complex."
In addition to the 942 townhouses, Nakheel will construct around 250 courtyard apartments - available for lease - within the new community.
The apartments will be built above a two-storey retail plaza with 365 restaurants and shops, also available for lease.
Warsan Village will also have a recreation centre with swimming pool, sports courts and gymnasium; a mosque with car parking; and extensive shaded, green space including a large park with a 1.7km jogging track.
In addition, Nakheel said it is building an 18,000 sq ft neighbourhood mall, announced earlier this year, next to Warsan Village. The mall will contain a supermarket, convenience stores and a host of cafes and restaurants.
