Nakheel launches sales for Waterfront district

on Sunday, 18 May 2008




AFFORDABLE HOMES: An artist's impression of the Badrah district at the Waterfront. (Supplied)Dubai-owned master developer Nakheel on Sunday launched the Badrah district in its Waterfront mega development.



The first phase of sales for Badrah - the second residential district to be announced within the Waterfront - begin on May 25, with handover planned for the end of 2009. The first phase will offer 1,000 apartments and townhouses.

The district, which aims to offer affordable housing, will comprise 45,000 homes on completion. The launch follows the offering of the Waterfront’s Veneto district earlier this month.

Matt Joyce, managing director at the Waterfront, said Nakheel aimed to provide a range of residential accommodation options within Dubai.

“As well as top-end luxury developments we want to create more affordable options for middle and moderate income buyers. Badrah is such a development and an opportunity for a new group of professionals to get onto the Dubai property ladder,” he said in a statement.

The development includes a light rail network, pathways and public transport system planned with direct links to Dubai's metro, which is currently under construction.

The entire Waterfront project will be made up of an inland component and six reclaimed islands, and will accommodate a population of 1.5 million when complete.

Other components of the project include Madinat Al Arab, the Canal District and Waterfront City. Construction is underway in Madinat Al Arab, which includes an accommodation complex that will eventually house 60,000 labourers.

Located along Sheikh Zayed Road, Badrah will border the Jebel Ali Free Zone, near the site where Dubai’s new international airport will be located.

The district comprises four areas - Diaa which has a high proportion of residential buildings and amenities, Talla which has a larger mix of offices, Manara which includes educational and civic amenities and Bahaa which focuses on retail and leisure elements.

All buildings will meet Leadership in Environmental Design Green Building Rating System (Leed) ratings performance international standard, which aims to result in lower maintenance and running costs, Joyce added.

actually, they should stop building those luxury bullshit and should focus on those cheap shitty affordable apartments. After all, the majority want to live and cannot afford any of those luxury bullshit projects.

They should but obviously they sold this country long time ago so they care about what goes to their pocket and not what is better for the country.

Badrah is the second residential district to be announced within Waterfront, an entirely new city masterplanned from scratch in ‘new Dubai’ and follows the hugely successful Veneto launch earlier in the month. Badrah will be the first active gateway to Waterfront. Located along the Sheikh Zayed Road, it borders Jebel Ali Free Zone and will be close to Dubai’s new international airport. There are four areas distinct areas in Badrah, each connected by a central boulevard. LIVE has a high proportion of residential buildings and amenities; WORK has a larger mix of offices; LEARN includes educational and civic amenities; and PLAY focuses on retail and leisure elements. While designed with sustainability and affordability as key factors, Badrah will be built to very high standards. All buildings will meet LEED (Leadership in Environmental Design Green Building Rating System) ratings performance standard as a minimum. This will result in lower maintenance and running costs as energy and water consumption is substantially decreased. Architecture blends modern modular forms with traditional Arabic design and when completed the Badrah district will offer 45,000 homes. The first phase of sales will commence on 25 May 2008 with just over 1,000 apartments and townhouses available. Handover of this phase is expected to take place at in mid 2009.

I also passed by the Nakheel sales center on Sunday and as expected there was a huge queue of cars outside.

Badrah next batch launch in 3 weeks.
There is a 10% premium on Town Houses and 9% on apartments.

Market is hot Nakheel and Emaar cashing in, bringing forward the release of projects.

I don't get this. You guys think designs for the lower classes should be poor and weak? If anything they should not so as to prevent social problems, etc in the future. They need to be basic but well designed just like everything else.

I don't find the desing that bad. There should be many of those projects. I am happy if those kind of projects will insure limiting the numbers of unwanted investors coming to exaggerate the properties prices.

Do you think this design and this quality will meet the LEED certificate? I seriously doubt, and only because they want to sell it cheap (compare to other development, its not that cheap ) again does it mean they should design shit?

This is Nakheel policy to ask all the private developers to go big on size, Gold in LEED, hand over the plots late and sell expensive only in order to sell faster and higher in price to customers.
