UAE-based conglomerate Merint has announced that its first exclusive India-based residential project at 219 Boat Club in Pune is now ready for occupation.

Conceptualised and designed by Atkins, the architectural firm best known for the Burj Al Arab in the UAE. The meticulously supervised project took almost four years to complete.

A hidden sanctuary located in the heart of Pune, 219 Boat Club becomes the city’s most exclusive address. It has 10 super luxury boutique apartments, each with its own private pool. The living room and terrace heights are over 22ft, giving it the feel of a sky villa.

Every floor is designed to capture an abundance of natural light and glass, an architectural feat that further accentuates the sprawling 8,000sqft space in every unit. The rapid pace of urbanisation coupled with India’s increasing attractiveness to NRIs seeking tangible options to invest in, has led to a marked growth in interest for high-end luxury housing.

“We recognise this trend and were always keen to ride the wave but not through just another residential tower,” said Fazal Manekia, founder and CEO, Merint. “We did not desire to make promises; we wished to deliver a dream! These ‘dreams’ are being delivered at a price of around $3mn each.”

“We harnessed our existing experience with in-house expertise and collaborated with the best in the business to create an architectural masterpiece,” Manekia added.

219 Boat Club combines the world’s most exclusive glass with unparalleled and exquisite design aesthetics, combining to create an incomparable home which is certain to resonate with the most discerning of home buyers.
