Earlier this week, the developer said it plans to build a AED900 million ($245 million), 25-storey twin tower project in Business Bay in the vicinity of Dubai Mall, which will have 274 apartments.
Omniyat will also develop a AED600 million ($163 million), 48-storey tower in Dubai Maritime City, which will have 225 apartments.
A lovely looking development. Why do they NEVER announce how much the maintenance fees are for each property so that people know the annual running costs. Owners associations still have very little control over the ongoing high costs of maintenance for properties in the UAE.
in addition to the hidden fees including high maintenance with annual increase, also their hidden commission charges whether property they have sold are rented through them or not. once they rent it out you are stuck and have to call them everyday to get your rent which will be with them until they wish. Omniyat is one developer i would never associate or work with
buyers should be put off by projets where the maintenance fees are announced in advance - as these projects are clearly not basing their fees on the actual cost of undertaking maintenance. In a properly regulated market, no-one would expect anything in advance on the basis that they would have certainty that the fees were based on the costs rather than profiteering.
In relation to this developer, the question people should be asking is what about the numerous developmments previously launched that have disappeared.
What about Gemini project? What investors ill get?
