Designs for the development's one- and two-bedroom apartments focus on functionality and modernity.
The project's three-bedroom apartments feature open spaces and spacious living areas.

"The development will leverage from our expertise of delivering vibrant and modern communities," he added.
RAK Properties is developing the project in line with the UAE's initiatives to attract visitors and tourists, Al Qadi said.
This September, the company unveiled Hayat Island, a 55.7ha mixed-use project that will feature food and beverage, shopping, and recreational offerings, in addition to hospitality and residential options, in Ras Al Khaimah.
Hayat Island's residential component comprises 2,457 apartments, split as 1,152 one-bedroom, 985 two-bedroom, and 320 three-bedroom units.

Commenting on the project, Al Qadi said: "Hayat Island is RAK Properties’ latest flagship project in the market and will be one of our distinctive developments.
