Dubai South Properties invests Dh500m in new staff accommodation
Sakany is fully-compliant with Expo 2020 welfare guidelines, making it the ideal accommodation for contractors working at the Expo 2020 site
Dubai South Properties has announced that investments in its first leasehold staff accommodation development, Sakany, have reached Dh500 million.
The investment is helping to position the project as a regional benchmark for safe and secure housing for blue collar workers. Residents at Sakany can enjoy features and amenities that include self-cooking facilities; a dining hall that accommodates over 2,000 people at any given time; a contemporary and multi-purpose hall in each building; landscaped courtyards; bicycle racks; covered bus shelters; and a sports complex comprising football and cricket pitches, as well as badminton, basketball, and volleyball courts. All of these facilities are accessible 24 hours a day.
There is also ample parking available, which can accommodate every resident as well as additional visitors, following the recent extension of the car park. Moreover, the development features free Wi-Fi across all buildings, allowing residents to connect with their families. The community also has two separate access points for freezone and non-freezone companies, and is completely secured by CCTV surveillance to ensure the safety of all residents. Sakany also distinguishes itself by offering a gated, female-only building with its own grocery store located on the premises.
Mohammed Al Awadhi, from Dubai South Properties, said: "For many companies, the Covid-19 pandemic has drawn attention to the fact that health and safety is paramount when securing accommodation for staff. Developing a purpose-built complex that offered an environment conducive to fostering an engaged, active and productive workforce was a priority for Dubai South from day one, when we set out to develop Sakany. Beyond the many unique provisions already available at Sakany, we are committed to continually enhancing our offering, delivering on our promise to provide our residents with an exceptional experience that emphasises their welfare."
Sakany is fully-compliant with Expo 2020 welfare guidelines, making it the ideal accommodation for contractors working at the Expo 2020 site. Opening soon will be a new retail centre that will include Grand Supermarket, four restaurants, a cafeteria, barbershop, pharmacy, clinic, electronic and mobile shops, and a money-exchange outlet, representing a distinct value-add to the unique lifestyle that the project promises residents.
Sakany currently accommodates 7,000 individuals, accounting for around 80 per cent occupancy across 10 buildings, all of which are equipped with dedicated medical and fit-for-purpose quarantine rooms to ensure the safety and wellness of residents. Phase 2 of the development was recently launched, offering 900 additional rooms in six state-of-the-art designed new buildings, ready to meet demand.
