Dubai UAE,: ZāZEN Properties, a homegrown property developer in the UAE, proudly announces the handover of their sold out and award winning ZāZEN Gardens development. The UAE’s first LEED Gold-certified residential development, this groundbreaking project, with 155 units, marks a significant milestone in sustainable urban development and aligns well with the UAE’s ambitious Net Zero 2050 vision.

ZāZEN Gardens sets a new benchmark for eco-friendly living in the region, as the project is expected to reduce approximately 470 metric tonnes of carbon emissions annually and generate nearly 390,000 kWh of onsite solar electricity each year. In addition to sharing the country’s Net Zero goals, these sustainable practices are in line with the Dubai 2040 Urban Masterplan and the recently announced Dubai Quality of Life Strategy 2033 initiatives championed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai[1].

Commenting on the handover, Madhav Dhar, founding member, and COO of ZāZEN Properties mentioned: “Our commitment to building for the future and fostering better living experiences has been a guiding principle through every step of this project. We are immensely proud of the team's relentless dedication to build high quality, sustainable, community centric developments. With the help of our partners, we have completed this project in just 18 months to rave reviews and awards. We are proud to deliver on our promise and set a benchmark with every project we take on. With ZāZEN Gardens we are raising the bar in the Al Furjan community just as we did in JVT.

He continued “At ZāZEN, we see the real estate market as integral to Dubai's visionary future. Achieving sellout at ZāZEN Gardens, just 6 months after launch showcases the new and rapidly increasing appetite that consumers have for high quality developments that balance quality, community and sustainable living. Therefore, the sustained success of real estate hinges on continual growth and progressive initiatives that add value to the buyers and investors in the market. With upcoming projects prioritizing quality of living and connectivity, Dubai's real estate sector is set to transform and grow.”

ZāZEN aims to reinforce Dubai’s status as a top destination to live and invest in while delivering award-winning projects that push the boundaries of sustainability, design, quality, and community.
