Ellington plans 14 projects in Dubai
To add over 2,200 residential units , including villas
Ellington Properties announced its project pipeline of 14 developments in Dubai on Wednesday. The new projects will add over 2,200 residential units including apartments, townhouses and villas.
The company, jointly set up by industry veterans and joint managing directors Robert Booth and Joseph Thomas, already has over 3.6 million square feet in gross floor area under design and construction. The firm undertakes the full spectrum of development services from design to construction, advisory and rental unit development.
"Dubai has evolved as a new global city all within the space of 10 years during which over $85 billion was invested in infrastructure projects. Simultaneously, the Emirate's population grew from one million in 2000 to over 2.5 million in 2015. The city will be home to over 3.2 million people by the time Dubai hosts the Expo 2020. The next four years will also witness an increase in the number of discerning customers who appreciate design and quality over price points. Ellington fills that space," Booth said.
Booth, who has been involved with the development of several iconic projects such as Dubai Marina, Emirates Hills, Arabian Ranches and Downtown Dubai, said that Ellington was set up to develop residential projects for discerning customers who appreciate design - from first principles to last detail. Benchmarked against the world's best, the firm has drawn the best international professionals to create a company that has design in its DNA.
"The visionary foresight of the leadership will continue to drive the growth of Dubai, which will continue to flourish in every aspect," he said.
"According to the recent Knight Frank survey, Dubai is now ranked at number 5, up from number 7 in 2014, on the list of the most visited cities in the world," he added.
Ellington Properties unveiled its first project, Belgravia, in Jumeirah Village Circle which is a G+4 residential building with 181 modern one, two, and three bedroom units. The homes sit on a landscaped 100,000 square feet area, with amenities including a swimming pool, gym and indoor and outdoor kids play area. Construction will be completed in December 2016.
