#ONHOLD: Umm Al Quwain: WHITE BAY

Umm Al Quwain gets new AED 8billion master planned community

His Highness Sheikh Abdullah Bin Rashed Al Mualla, Umm Al Quwain Deputy Ruler, and Sheikh Tariq Bin Faisal Al Qassimi, Chairman of the Emirates Investments Group LLC (EIG) have recently signed an agreement that will see the establishment of White Bay, a master planned community and tourism resort within the Emirate of Umm Al Quwain.


EIG plans to develop futuristic tourism and residential project

With further details to be announced in the coming weeks, the project is worth more than AED 8billion. It will be marketed and managed by Emirates Sunland Group (ESG).

Emirates Sunland Group is a 50:50 partnership between Sunland Group, an Australia based property development company, and UAE based Emirates International Holdings Ltd. Emirates Sunland Group have recently opened offices in Dubai in preparation for the launch of several new projects in the UAE, including the world's second Palazzo Versace Hotel, D1 Tower, an 80 storey residential/resort tower on Dubai Creek.

Speaking at the signing to mark the occasion, Mr. Raza Jafar, Managing Director of EIG commented, 'We are proud to announce our partnership with the Emirate of Umm Al Quwain in the development of such a prestigious and important project. This project will compliment the various other mega projects already under development in the Emirate and we envisage that such a scheme will contribute significantly to the economic growth and prosperity of both Umm Al Quwain and the UAE as a whole.'

Umm Al Quwain is currently undergoing a complete renovation and improvement of its infrastructure with billions of dirhams in investment being dedicated to the establishment of colossal residential and tourism mega-projects.

Mr. Soheil Abedian, Managing Director of Emirates Sunland Group says of the White Bay project,

'White Bay will be a destination for those who would like to experience the facilities and services of a world-class resort, all in the beautiful natural environment of Umm Al Quwain. All buildings will be built at a human scale with no building exceeding 15 storeys and all will have full access to the water and green-belts areas."

Emirates Sunland Group officially launches White Bay on shores of Umm Al Quwain

Emirates Sunland Group, the property development company behind the Palazzo Versace Resort, has officially launched White Bay, an AED 8 billion master-planned community on the shores of Umm Al Quwain.


The White Bay Project.

White Bay will be a resort style residential community built around two man-made islands and along the natural shoreline. The Waterfront villas will have direct access to the beach, while the Parkview villas will overlook the public gardens and parks. Terraced Condominiums, mid-rise apartments and townhouses will also be set amongst the gardens offering views across the Arabian Gulf.

The Marina, town centre and harbour will be the focal point at White Bay, and will feature an Artists Colony, hotels and a retirement village to cater to the needs of GCC locals and expatriates alike. A boutique shopping strip along the marina precinct will offer cafes, restaurants, fashion and entertainment. No building within White Bay will rise above 15 storeys to ensure the development is kept to a human scale and complements the natural environment.

Umm Al Quwain is well known for its natural beauty and the waters surrounding White Bay are tranquil and clear, making it the perfect destination for water sports such as diving, fishing and sailing. In keeping with the tranquillity of the White Bay community and the relaxed lifestyle of a resort precinct, each residence will be provided with a golf cart to help people move around the village without the need of a car.

Mr Soheil Abedian, Managing Director of Emirates Sunland Group says the White Bay project will bring a new standard of mixed use living to the UAE and entire Middle East region.

'Most importantly, White Bay will provide a rare coastal destination for weekend retreats that is only a short drive from the hustle and bustle of the city of Dubai. For those who choose White Bay as their permanent residence, it will provide a truly relaxed beach lifestyle with all the facilities that resort living has to offer.'



'Imagine waking everyday in a resort precinct, with either a short drive to your place of work, or to enjoy the water activities and the marina precinct complete with the boardwalk and beach.'

Emirates Sunland Group is a 50:50 partnership between Dubai based Emirates International Holdings and Australian based Sunland Group. Sunland Group opened the world's first Palazzo Versace Hotel on Australia's Gold Coast in 2000, and earlier this year they completed Q1, the world's tallest residential tower, also on the Gold Coast.

As well as White Bay, Emirates Sunland Group are currently developing several other projects in Dubai and the UAE. The world's second Palazzo Versace Hotel is due to be completed on Dubai's Creek by 2009. D1, an 80-storey residential/ resort tower is also to be built on Dubai's Creek, and this will be a sister tower to Q1.

Stage one of White Bay completely sold out

Emirates Sunland Group, the property development company behind the Palazzo Versace Hotel, has announced that stage one of the waterfront precinct at White Bay project has completely sold out.


White Bay project in Umm Al Quwain.

The majority of stage five has also been sold and this has brought forward the release date of stage two, which also comprises of waterfront and canal view villas, garden villas and mid-rise apartments.

White Bay is a resort style residential community to be built around two man-made islands and along the natural shoreline of Umm Al Quwain.

The first stage of the US$3 billion master planned community was launched at Cityscape last December and has seen over 75 luxury waterfront villas sold. Each of these villas has direct access to beach front and overlooks the canal leading to the marina.

The White Bay community will be built around a central marina, with the town centre facing the waterfront. A boardwalk running along the waters edge will offer fashion boutiques, cafes and open air restaurants and will be a place for residents to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the town. This area will also be the focal point for the community's cultural and entertainment precinct.

Two hotels built on either side of the town centre will offer stunning views over the water and gardens, while a retirement residence will provide the latest medical facilities for those wanting to retire in a resort styled community.

Mr Soheil Abedian, Managing Director of Emirates Sunland Group says he is delighted with the success of stage one and is looking forward to the successful release of properties in stage two.

'The market for resort styled communities in the UAE is growing in popularity. Recent surveys have shown that there is a shortage of this kind of development in Dubai and purchasers are now looking to the neighboring emirates. The unique position of White Bay on the Umm Al Quwain shoreline, its attractive pricing and the potential for growth in value in Umm Al Quwain is encouraging many owner occupiers to move to this resort styled community.'

Emirates Sunland Group is a joint venture between Dubai based Emirates International Holdings and Australian based Sunland Group. Sunland Group opened the world's first Palazzo Versace Hotel on Australia's Gold Coast in 2000, and last year completed Q1. This was recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the world's tallest residential tower.

As well as project managing White Bay on behalf of Al Murjan Real Estate, Emirates Sunland Group is currently developing several other projects in Dubai. The world's second Palazzo Versace Hotel is currently under construction on Dubai Creek alongside D1, an 80-storey residential/resort tower. D1 will be a sister tower to Q1 on Australia's Gold Coast.

In conjunction with the release of stage two of the White Bay project Emirates Sunland Group is currently displaying White Bay at the Galleria section of Mall of the Emirates.

UAQ does not have Freehold ownership for Foreigners, only for UAE Nationals and GCC Nationals. Foreigners have to go for leasehold 99 years. If you're exclusively looking for freehold you probably want to checkout Ajman , Ras Al Khaimah & Dubai projects.

Finally Started?

In their press release on White Bay website, Emirates Sunland Group announced that construction to commence. They expect the work will take 14 months.
I drove by 3 times over the past 5 days, I saw only 3 wheel dozers/compactors running around. I guess they'll take at least 24 months to deliver phase 1&2 if all goes well.
Will try to take pics next time I pass by.

CHEC wins White Bay


China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) has won a US $54.4 million (AED200 million) contract to carry out civil and infrastructure works at Al Murjan Real Estate's White Bay project in Umm Al Quwain.

Work is expected to take 14 months and will include all civil engineering and infrastructure works as well as the reclamation of the first island in the development and the construction of a bridge connecting the island with the mainland.

The project manager on the development is Emirates Sunland Group.

"We are delighted to have CHEC working with us on this prestigious development," said White Bay project manager Costas Alexandrou. "They have an excellent track record and we are confident that their industry standing and expertise will be invaluable in bringing this project to a successful conclusion."

White Bay will be made up of two man-made islands located on the shores of Umm Al-Quwain.

The development's 8,000 units are spread over a land area of 1.7 million mē and facilities include a 190-berth marina and canal. "The White Bay project is on-track," added Alexandrou.

"We are confident that our appointment of such a highly-respected company will ensure the project's continued progress and success."
