Omniyat breaks ground on DMC seafront project

DUBAI, December 9, 2014

Omniyat Group, a leading developer in the Middle East, joined hands with Dubai Maritime City to break ground on Anwa by Omniyat, a major seafront development in Dubai UAE, that will boast of 53 mixed-use projects, hotels, shopping malls, restaurants and 10 parks.

Omniyat said the project will stand out as the guiding star of Dubai, visible from the sea in Dubai Maritime City.

Located right next to the marina and the beautiful boardwalk, Anwa is positioned on the same strip as the Four Seasons and the Bulgari hotels. It offers residential apartments, all with sea views, some with views from two sides of Deira Islands and Jumeirah, it added.

The groundbreaking ceremony was conducted by Khamis Juma Buamim, the chairman of Dubai Maritime City and Mahdi Amjad, Omniyat Group’s executive chairman and CEO, along with other senior officials from Dubai Maritime City and Omniyat Group.

The group also announced the appointment of Kele as the contractor for the project, and Al Ghurair Contracting & Engineering Works as the specialist contractor for piling works.

The project has been designed to recreate the glory days of trans-ocean cruising marked by glitz, glamour and art deco of the '20s and '30s, said a top official.

“It always gives me great pleasure to be at Dubai Maritime City, a city that will be a destination of choice not only for global maritime businesses and investors but also for those searching for a unique residential experience set along the waterfront,” remarked Mahdi Amjad, Omniyat Group executive chairman and CEO.

Buamim said: "We are delighted to take part in the ceremony to break ground on Anwa by Omniyat. This project will play a key role in positioning Dubai Maritime City as an ideal location for modern living with a perfect work-life balance."

"Anwa will be a key component of Dubai Maritime City offering an ideal living experience by the sea," he added.

Mark Phoenix, the managing director of Omniyat Group, said: "We are proud of the efforts of our development and sales teams that have led to the success of this project."

“Through this project, Omniyat is not just developing a dynamic, sea-facing zone, but introducing a concept that guarantees a totally new experience in opulence, distinguished by its standout elevation and lavish interiors. It will be Dubai Maritime City’s foremost residential project,” added Amjad.

Principally located towards the east of Dubai between Port Rashid and Dubai Dry Docks, Dubai Maritime City is situated in close proximity to Jumeirah Beach Road (1 km), Sheikh Zayed Road (3 km), and the Dubai International Airport (10 km). It is just 15 minutes away from Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall.

Elaborating on Dubai Maritime City as a hot destination, Buamim said it will also incorporate retail spaces and offices.

"The Business District will have a 3,200-m-long boardwalk with dedicated jogging and cycling tracks. Moreover, there will be world-class berths for boats. The Marine District will house some of the largest yacht manufacturers from Europe and Middle East and leading spare parts suppliers and repair centres,” he added.

Unveiling the new project, Buamim said a new bridge will connect Bur Dubai to the Dubai Maritime City Business District, and a tram line will link the whole Business District.

"A multilevel car park will also be developed, along valet parking zones. We are pleased to announce that all basic infrastructures, including Dewa (Dubai Electricity and Water Authority) substations, have been completed," he added.

Featuring sweeping views of the ocean from every floor, Anwa by Omniyat will offer 225 units, incorporating 29 studios, 80 one-bedroom, 87 two-bedroom and 23 three-bedroom apartments, one penthouse and five townhouses. It will also have 8,133 sq ft of retail area as well as landscaped gardens, gymnasium, infinity pool, kids pool and play area and barbeque area.

Amjad said Omniyat has designed Anwa for those with exquisite taste and who aspire for ultimate elegance and exclusive living. "The interest has been phenomenal and we are very excited about the launch," he stated.

“Earlier, we succeeded in bringing a slice of Miami to Dubai through the new design of The Pad tower in Burj Khalifa District. With Anwa, we aim to bring a piece of the past into the glamorous modern surroundings of the emirate,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
