Al Barakah to build Ajman's tallest tower
Staff Report
Published: May 19, 2008, 00:16



Dubai: Al Barakah Group, the Dubai-based real estate group with a strong presence in all the segments of the real estate value-chain and a project portfolio of more than Dh8 billion, on Sunday announced 'Manara Ajman' the tallest tower in Ajman.

This 95-storey tower is a part of the Dh4 billion mixed-used development in Marmooka City, which is being developed by Al Barakah group. While Manara Ajman (or 'Lighthouse of Ajman' in Arabic) certainly adds an interesting vertical dimension to Ajman's skyline, the actual height of the tower has not yet been revealed.

Manara Ajman would be part of a larger multi-towered project - The Crest. The Crest would offer free-hold residential, commercial and retail space along with modern leisure, lifestyle, well-being, entertainment and fine dining opportunities.

"The Crest is Al Barakah's most ambitious project till date and an iconic development in itself that gives Ajman its first ever tall tower- Manara Ajman. While Manara Ajman adds a distinct advantage to the project, the other USP of the project is most certainly its location as the gateway to Marmooka City," said Imran Khan, CEO of Al Barakah

In addition to Manara Ajman, the 6 million square feet development would include four other towers-Burj Royale, Burj Regal, Burj Monarch, and Burj Regent.

The Burj Regent and the Burj Monarch will share a common podium that would incorporate diverse retail opportunities spread over an area of 1 million square foot with a dedicated car park for the retail section.

Wonderful for Ajman (and about time it had a supertall!)

Their contact number is 04 282 8343. I called them up and they will be launching this project in around 4 months. Their other tower - Monarch Tower (which is also one of the 5 towers in the Crest) - is currently selling in pre-launch. I should be getting pricing shortly so will post back in the relevant thread once I get details.

One thing that potentially concerns me is that they appear to be a very small outfit - they guy I spoke to said that the company is mostly made up of a group of long-time friends and this is their first big project. He did mention that they have a development in Dubailand and also Crimson Court in Emirates City so I'll check them out. However it doesn't give me a huge amount of confidence (they dont even have a website yet either). Is this grounds for concern or am I being sceptical/pessimistic?!
