A community specifically customised and tailored to meet the accommodation needs of Dubai’s growing business and industry sectors
Dubai, UAE - 20 November 2016: Dubai Properties (DP), a leading Dubai-based real estate master developer and asset manager known for renowned destinations across the Emirate, today announced a new staff housing development - Rahaba Residences in DUBAILAND - targeting Dubai’s growing business and industry sectors. Rahaba Residences will house junior to mid-level staff and is the first staff accommodation development in Dubai to employ the Built-To-Suit (BTS) model to meet employees’ specific residential needs.
Fuelled by the new infrastructure developments and job creation ahead of Expo 2020, DP continues to redefine industry standards, now with its new concept launch for employee accommodation across a diverse cross section of organisations’ housing needs. With shortage of affordable homes for national and multinational organisations, accommodation such as Rahaba Residences is likely to increase while positively impacting their business and improving overall lifestyle experiences.
This unique project was designed and developed by DP to specifications that meet organisations’ housing needs and more importantly managed with each particular client’s needs.. Customisation is applied to all aspects of the interior of the buildings including residential units and all common areas such as central kitchens, dining halls, recreation rooms, gymnasium, technical rooms and parking.
Sahar Al Ansari, Executive Director, Residential Asset Management at DP, said: “Rahaba Residences is a brand new alternative for employers who are interested in housing all of their staff in one, central location in the heart of DUBAILAND, without compromising on their staff wellbeing and lifestyle. The BTS model enables us to build an entirely new destination that will transform the way staff housing has been traditionally delivered in Dubai.”
The first phase of the development consists of four clusters, each comprising of two buildings connected through a podium level, with retail space on the ground floor of each building. The buildings, each containing seven floors, encompass over 200 high-quality studio units, ranging in size from 27 to 36 sq.m. In total, Rahaba Residences houses more than 1600 studios in the eight buildings and is surrounded by open spaces and calming environments, creating a comfortable and reenergising lifestyle for employees. All residents will have access to a gymnasium, lounge area, nursery room, prayer rooms, outdoor basketball and volleyball courts.
Underlined by the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to position Dubai as a city of happy, creative and empowered people, DP is committed to providing the necessary framework and foundation through its various staff communities, encouraging employees to achieve a happy, engaged and productive work-life balance.
According to Al Ansari, DP manages its communities to provide exceptional lifestyle experiences through a wide portfolio of developments that answer to the social diversification in the Emirate, ranging from beach front luxurious penthouses, family villas to staff accommodation. “We believe that everyone deserves access to comfortable living, which plays a key role in bringing happiness and social welfare to the residents of Dubai,” adds Al Ansari. “Through Rahaba Residences, and its unique customised residential units and common amenities, we are offering employers the opportunity to ensure their staff are provided with excellent accommodation.”
In close proximity to the heart of Dubai, Rahaba Residences is located on the Dubai - Al Ain Road, and is a five-minute drive away from Dubai Outlet Mall. The development features a variety of amenities including sports facilities and ample car parking space.
