#COMPLETED: ZUMURUD, 30F Res (Dubai Marina)

Just got a mail from Better Homes.... a real special project to be launched this month. Since it's approved and we have a confirmation, I think we can start a thread for this one and update when we get more info (I am going to speak to the agent tomorrow and find out more info).

This is not the EMAAR towers we know about. It's a Bin Hamoodah project.

Look very intresting...but the best thing i love is how every render always has loads of green space around it which in reality is space for another tower.

But i'm sure there will be quite a bit of green space in the marina anyway.

well the problems is the definition of 'marina walk' maybe the whole promenade will be marina walk.

anyway, district 5 is always shitty location.. ok not everything, but usually.

Zumurud apartment tower launched at IPW

Zumurud ('Emerald'), in the heart of Dubai Marina, was launched at the International Property Week exhibition which opened at the Dubai Conference Centre yesterday offering freehold purchasers a choice of spacious studio, one and two bedroom apartments, plus four each of deluxe three and four bedroom apartments.
United Arab Emirates: 5 hours, 41 minutes ago


Zumurud ('Emerald') at Dubai Marina was launched at the International Property Week exhibition at the Dubai Conference Centre yesterday (21/02/2005). Better Homes has been appointed exclusive marketing and sales agents for the 30-storey luxury residential tower by the developer Bin Hamoodah Group.

Better Homes, the leading real estate company with over 20 years of solid reputation in the region, has been appointed exclusive marketing and sales agents for the 30-storey luxury residential tower by the well respected developer Bin Hamoodah Properties of Abu Dhabi. Established over 25 years ago, the Bin Hamoodah Group has diverse business activities and is a successful and well-respected company.

The contracting company, which will be decided in March through tenders, will commence construction in April 2006 with a completion date in late 2008. The building was designed by Khatib and Alami. Founded in 1963, the global company has been ranked among the top 100 International Design firms as published by the Engineering News Record (ENR).

Zumurud, which offers value for money and flexible financing plans, will be finished to an extremely high standard and will feature all the amenities of a luxury apartment dwelling including a large swimming pool and Jacuzzi, a fully equipped gym, health club including saunas and steam rooms for men and women, play area plus a romantic Marina Café.

The apartments will feature spectacular all-round views, large balconies, free parking, 24-hour security backed up by CCTV, high speed Internet access and centralized satellite television.
