Damac property named ‘best golf development’
Dubai, December 22, 2013
Akoya by Damac, a 42-million sq ft luxury golf community under development in Dubai, has been named the ‘best golf development’ in the world.
The award for ‘Best International Golf Development’ was presented at this year’s International Property Awards held in London recently.
The development is being built around the Trump International Golf Club, Dubai – the first course to be managed by the Trump Organization in the Middle East and Asia, said a senior official.
Niall McLoughlin, senior VP of Damac Properties, said: “There is already a great deal of international interest in this project, which includes a host of luxurious villas and townhouses overlooking the Trump International Golf Club, Dubai.”
“Clients can look out over what will be the finest course in the region from their luxury villa with interiors designed by FENDI, Paramount or the Trump Estates,” he added.
More than 80 international experts were part of a meticulous judging panel which shortlisted possible projects from around the world. All elements of the development came under the closest scrutiny, including design, ingenuity and sustainability.
The golf course will also include a dedicated 4.3 million sq ft of open parkland, named Akoya Park, besides international schools, a high-end retail community centre, a boutique hotel and spa. - TradeArabia News Service
