Nakheel to Showcase US$4.6 Billion of Projects in Hong Kong

Company News, Real Estate

Nakheel, the Dubai-based master developer of some of the world's most famous landmarks including The Palm Jumeirah, will be showcasing more than US$4.6 billion of projects at the Dubai Property Show which opens in Hong Kong next week.

Nakheel, the Dubai-based master developer of some of the world's most famous landmarks including The Palm Jumeirah, will be showcasing more than US$4.6 billion of projects at the Dubai Property Show which opens in Hong Kong next week. 

With 15,000 hectares under development or already developed (including completed residential units that accommodate 200,000 people), the UAE-based developer will be the largest exhibitor at the three-day event which is highlighting real estate opportunities in the Emirate of Dubai.

Investors from the Indian sub-continent are the company's largest overseas customer group after purchasing 4,400 properties with a transaction value of US$2.5 billion.

Hong Kong-based investors have already spent US$245 million on 500 villas, apartments and plots of land (with Chinese purchasers accounting for some 80 per cent of the total or 390 properties with a transaction value of US$212 million).

Compatriots have also invested in Nakheel's recently-expanded retail and trading complex in Dubai, Dragon Mart, which is the world's biggest Chinese trading hub outside mainland China, with more than 4,000 shops, restaurants and entertainment outlets welcoming an average off 80,000 visitors daily.

Commenting on the event, Nakheel Chairman, Ali Rashid Lootah said:

"The Dubai Property Show is the ideal platform from which to highlight how investors in Hong Kong can be part of the Dubai real estate success story, as end-users or with a view to renting out.

"Dubai's excellent transport, education, trade and leisure facilities act as a magnet for people to live and work in the Emirate. These people need accommodation which generates huge demand for rental properties that offer substantial investment returns".
He further added that the company looks forward to "strengthening" its relationship with investors in South-East Asia at the event.

Projects on show in Hong Kong will include the 15.3 square kilometre Deira Islands coastal city; luxury high-rise apartments in the 52-storey Palm Tower and high-end waterfront units at Azure Residences at Palm Jumeirah; and spacious three-bedroom townhouses at Warsan Village, a new, gated community located near Dragon Mart and Nakheel's biggest planned community, International City.

Warsan Village and International City are already home to 300 investors from China and the Far East.

Deira Islands

Deira Islands, a 15.3 sq Km waterfront city, is set to transform Dubai's Deira district into a world-class hub for tourism, retail and entertainment, adding 40 km, including 21 km of beachfront, to Dubai's coastline in the process.

The project will contribute significantly to the Government of Dubai's tourism vision by paving the way for the development of hundreds of new hotels, serviced apartments, mixed-use buildings and residential waterside developments.

Nakheel itself is developing a significant amount of the 4.5 million square metre south island, creating a unique creek side destination with an array of retail, entertainment and hospitality attractions including Deira Mall; Deira Towers and Boulevard and Deira Islands Night Souk.
