Sustainable Model Villas at alghadeer Sorouh on Abu Dhabi-Dubai Border
(ABU DHABI, U.A.E.) -- One of Abu Dhabi's leading real estate developers is planning for the future when the two main cities of the UAE are expected to look more like one metropolitan area. This week Sorouh Real Estate PJSC completed the ninth model villa at the future Alghadeer Sorouh, on the Abu Dhabi-Dubai border, about 30-40 minutes drive from each city.
These nine villas, however, are not for buyers. They were built by experts in sustainable architecture as laboratories to study best construction practices before a contractor is selected. That selection will be based on energy saving and insulation techniques for environmental and cost saving benefits and quality, speed, and efficiency of construction.
Alghadeer Sorouh is a three million square meter development that qualifies as an Investment Zone which means that non UAE nationals can own the homes, but only UAE nationals and Gulf Cooperation Council nationals can own the land they are built on. Samer Abu Hijleh, Chief Operations Officer, said, "We believe an investment in Alghadeer Sorouh is an investment in a new mode of living for a new breed of commuter."
First homes are expected in 2012. Infrastructure work began last October with more than 1000 people already working at the site. Sorouh Real Estate PJSC is one of the UAE's leading property companies, with more than AED 70 billion worth of projects in the UAE and internationally.
