Occupying a land area of 37,410 sq ft, the tower comprises of six basement levels, a ground floor and 100 levels above. Princess Tower offers 763 individual units, including 1, 2, 3 bedrooms and penthouses and is supported by 957 parking bays, while eight retail shops located on ground level offer shopping convenience.
Federico Tauber, president of Tameer said, “With the flourishing sophistication of the UAE’s real estate market and immense demand for more unique and exclusive developments, Tameer ventured into building state-of-the-art projects such as Princess Tower and Elite Residence.
“We are proud to announce today the completion of Princess Tower considered as a true achievement in architecture and construction terms in addition to a unique location in Dubai Marina.”
The 97th multifunction floor features a unique dedicated recreational area where residents can enjoy a wonderful 360 degree panorama of the Marina, the Palm Jumeirah, Sheikh Zayed Road and all nearby landmarks and organise a variety of relaxing or social activities.
To add convenience and flexibility to different activity requirements, the space can be divided into several individual partitions by simply reconfiguring closure panels.
On the fifth and sixth levels, residents can access a host of desirable amenities such as fully equipped gymnasiums, swimming pools, billiard and table tennis rooms.
Tauber continued: “The ability to face these exceptionally challenging market conditions were only achieved with the help of Tameer owners, the support and trust of our clients – whose contribution we sincerely recognize and appreciate – the efforts of our investors, contractors, Tameer management team and also government officials from Dubai Land Department, RERA, Dubai Municipality, Civil Defense, and many others.”
Tauber concluded: “The hand handover of properties has already started and several residents have planned their moving in. Considering there are 763 apartments, the first owners and tenants to move in will enjoy first-quick-mover-advantage, in a relatively relaxed atmosphere. At the end, all residents will take pleasure in a unique living by the sea experience.” – TradeArabia News Service
