Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 07 June 2017: Jumeirah Golf Estates (JGE), home to the DP World Tour Championship and one of the Middle East’s premier residential and leisure destinations, has appointed Progress Constructions LLC, a leading regional construction company, as the contractor for the townhouses and retail centre of its mid-market luxury residential community, Alandalus.

The awarding of the contract brings the much-anticipated Alandalus development one step closer to completion, and means the townhouses, located just minutes away from the site of EXPO 2020, are on track for their scheduled handover commencing in September 2018.

With prices starting from AED 1.3 million, the Alandalus townhouses have set a benchmark in the high-demand, mid-market luxury segment in Dubai. Townhouses in the first two phases sold out in just three hours, and Jumeirah Golf Estates will launch the third phase later this year.

Yousuf Kazim, CEO of Jumeirah Golf Estates said: "The appointment of Progress Constructions LLC to build the townhouses and retail centre is an exciting milestone for Alandalus. We launched the development targeting a niche segment in the Dubai market that we believe has yet to be catered to, offering luxury living choices with affordable prices. Introducing a new home concept to Dubai, the townhouses combine modern and traditional Andalusian materials with functional, sophisticated, comfortable indoor and outdoor spaces.

The strong demand seen for these townhouses underpins our reputation for bringing the right type of product to the market at the right price, without compromising on the layout and finishing, and within close proximity of the EXPO 2020 site.

“We have made remarkable progress in construction of Alandalus buildings thus. far. Considering the strong track record of Progress Construction LLC, we are confident that we will be equally effective in our delivery of the townhouses and retail centre for our investors.”

Eng. Wsaam Al Ani, Managing Director of Progress Constructions LLC, said: “We are proud to have been awarded this contract by Jumeirah Golf Estates, which is testament to our expertise in the construction of prime residential developments. We execute each of our contracted projects to the highest possible standard, and are confident that we will deliver the same for Alandalus townhouses and retail centre, a community that will ultimately reinforce Jumeirah Golf Estates’ position as a destination of choice.”

The Alandalus Townhouses comprise 95 two and three-bedroom homes inspired by Andalusian architecture. The retail centre sits at the heart of the Alandalus community, which also features 715 apartments, Jumeirah Golf Estates’ second Clubhouse, and a hotel, altogether offering residents a variety of wellness, leisure and entertainment options. Alandalus is situated on the award-winning residential golf development with two Championship golf courses, Jumeirah Golf Estates. Set across 375 hectares, 75 per cent of the property is made up of lush green landscaping, with lakes and nature strips throughout. Residential properties take up the remainder of the development, and considering that three-quarters of homes enjoy views of the Championship golf courses, residents are promised an exceptional outdoor lifestyle experience.
