Bring the ‘island’ in-land – at the upscale Tilal Al Ghaf project in Dubai, the developer Majid Al Futtaim Communities is doing that. On the Lagoon Al Ghaf, the “Lanai Island” is to be constructed. This means that Lanai Island will be the “first phase of Island Estates, a new ultra-luxury concept under the title of “Signature Living by Majid Al Futtaim”.
The first of two private islands to hit the market, Lanai Island, will have Edge mansions with four to eight bedrooms and a gross floor area (GFA) of 20,094 square feet. The typical plot measures just under 26,000 square feet.
“It is something the region hasn’t seen yet. Combining the seclusion and tranquility of living in an island paradise with easy access to Dubai’s urban hubs, Lanai Island mega-mansions are crafted to deliver a lifestyle that exceeds expectations,” said Hawazen Esber, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim – Communities.
The ‘Shore’ homes on Lanai Island, nine of which are offered in this initial release, have a GFA of 16,102 square feet and 40 meters of open waterfront. The average plot measures 23,614 square feet.
The interiors of the mansions were designed by Kelly Hoppen Interiors and by the South African architect SAOTA.
In the past three years, the all-villa neighborhood of Tilal Al Ghaf has become one of the city’s most popular places to live improved over time. Developers who are ready to pay a premium have been steadily adding to the developer’s residential possibilities in recent months. Even in the secondary market, the project is still closely watched and is able to compete with the high-profile transactions taking place in the Palm, Emirates Hills, Jumeira Bay, and Dubai Hills.
Tilal Al Ghaf’s exposure is increased by the addition of two islands and by the limited number of villa releases.
Investor visibility is increased by having a lagoon flow through, whether it is at Sobha’s Hartland or the one at MBR City. The situation for Damac’s Lagoons, a project with water as its main element, is very similar.
