Sobha Realty’s projects are on track despite COVID-19 challenges
Sobha Realty confirmed that it remains committed to its construction schedule for 2020, with delivery on track across Sobha Hartland, its flagship master development located at Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City in the heart of Dubai.
The company announced that Gardenia Villas Phase II is now complete and in the process of handover. Hartland Greens Phase III (Buildings 5 and 6) is advancing as planned and is at 90 per cent completion with delivery scheduled in 2020. Despite the challenging impacts of COVID-19 and a halt in operations across multiple sectors, Sobha Realty has put in place several measures to ensure the well-being and safety of its staff and maintain seamless construction activity over the course of the last few months.
Speaking on the company’s commitment to timely delivery in the current exceptional scenario, Francis Alfred, managing director and CEO of Sobha Realty, said: “Over the past few months, the world has witnessed unprecedented circumstances that have impacted the safety and well-being of populations across geographies and segments, leading to large-scale economic disruption. But it is heartening to see how industries are endeavouring to adapt to the changing landscape.”
Alfred further added: “During this time, Sobha Realty seeks to prioritise the safety of our staff and fulfil our commitments to our clients. With a reputation for timely project deliveries and best-in-class residences in prime locations, we are proud to have weathered this phase with minimal disruptions to construction operations as we prepare for the scheduled handover of a series of projects within the Sobha Hartland development. This is testament to our unwavering commitment to offering exceptional services and experiences to our buyers and investors and to Dubai, which has distinguished itself as a global hub for real estate.”
He also commented: “We are confident that as a natural outcome of the multiple customer-focussed initiatives and proactive measures the UAE government has implemented, the real estate market in Dubai will remain an attractive one for local and international buyers. As real estate developers, we need to focus on re-imagining the next normal and put in place strategies that are aligned with the UAE’s vision for economic recovery.”
Construction across other projects within the master development, including Creek Vistas 1, One Park Avenue, Creek Vistas Reservé and Forest Villas, is also advancing as planned. As such, Sobha Hartland Infrastructure is 90% complete. 2,000 residential units are under construction in Sobha Hartland, and the overall development has reached 25 per cent completion.
Launched in 2014, the eight million square feet luxury freehold master development, Sobha Hartland consists of upscale apartments, premium villas and high-end townhouses, including Greens, Creek Vistas, Creek Vistas Reservé, Gardenia Villas, Garden Houses, One Park Avenue and Forest Villas. The master development is set for completion in 2025.
