Nakheel unveils Badhrah district at Waterfront

Dubai, May 18, 2008

Nakheel, a Dubai World company and one of the world’s largest and most innovative real estate developers, on Sunday unveiled its latest district on Waterfront – Badrah.

This new district will meet the needs of the modern day family and provide an affordable option through intelligent design and value for money, said a Nakheel official.

"Badrah is the second residential district to be announced within Waterfront, an entirely new city masterplanned from scratch in ‘new Dubai’ and follows the hugely successful Veneto launch earlier in the month," Matt Joyce, Nakheel managing director, Waterfront said.

Located along the Sheikh Zayed Road, Badrah will be the first active gateway to Waterfront. It borders Jebel Ali Free Zone and will be close to Dubai’s new international airport, he noted.

"There is an emphasis on open, green spaces at Badrah and as a self-sustainable community it offers all essential services and community facilities."

The quality and accessibility of the social infrastructure will encourage walking, cycling and the overall community feel of the development, Joyce observed.
Public transport is integral to the development with a light rail network, pathways and public transport system planned with direct links to the Metrorail and greater Waterfront project. 

"There are four areas distinct areas in Badrah, each connected by a central boulevard. Diaa has a high proportion of residential buildings and amenities; Talla has a larger mix of offices; Manara includes educational and civic amenities; and Bahaa focuses on retail and leisure elements," he explained.

While designed with sustainability and affordability as key factors, Badrah will be built to very high standards.

All buildings will meet Leed (Leadership in Environmental Design Green Building Rating System) ratings performance standard as a minimum. This will result in lower maintenance and running costs as energy and water consumption is substantially decreased.

Architecture blends modern modular forms with traditional Arabic design and when completed the Badrah district will offer 45,000 homes. The first phase of sales will commence on May 25 with just over 1,000 apartments and townhouses available. Handover is expected to take place at the end of 2009.

“At Nakheel we are committed to offering a wide choice of residential accommodation for all of Dubai’s current and future residents," Joyce said.

"As well as top-end luxury developments, we want to create more affordable options for middle and moderate income buyers. Badrah is such a development and an ideal opportunity for a new group of professionals to get onto the Dubai property ladder,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
