Company says construction is underway and completion is slated for the fourth quarter of 2015
TECOM Investments announced on Tuesday the launch of Villa Lantana, a freehold villa community located next to Umm Sequim Road in Al Barsha South, Dubai.
The company said construction is currently underway with project completion set for the fourth quarter of 2015.
Villa Lantana will feature 440 properties, consisting of 3, 4 and 5 bedroom detached and semi-attached family homes set across two landscaped gated communities.
Sales to the public are expected to launch in early September with prices starting at AED 2.375 million ($646,000).
The project will offer buyers the choice of 17 different villa designs and 11 floor plans and Villa Lantana will also feature a retail centre, parks and playgrounds, as well as sports facilities including sports centres with gyms and pools, sports courts and outdoor jogging tracks.
Commenting on the launch of Villa Lantana, Badr Al Gargawi, CEO, Development & Planning Division, TECOM Investments said: "Villa Lantana enjoys an excellent location and a freehold status, a combination that is a rarity in Dubai especially for residential villas.
"The project was designed to meet the demand for family homes located in the centre of new Dubai. We are confident that this new residential villa project will prove to be both an astute investment and a real community where families can grow and thrive."For all the latest construction news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
All sounds great on paper and the marketing blurb will show landscaped gardens, schools, pools etc..... I hope they deliver on their promises.
Having bought a property in Sports City, who can answer what has happened to all the promised facilities including large scale retail, sports facilities (David Lloyd tennis centre is just a big hole 30 feet deep....). All the schools and health centers/hospitals are simply non-existent.
What can be done to force developers to deliver on their promises?
