Kareem Farah, CEO, ECC: “We always strive to provide our clients with leading, dynamic solutions to deliver projects of the highest quality. We are ready and excited for this project and look forward to continuing our relationship with Nshama Properties on upcoming developments.”
He added: “There are over 10,000 urban development projects underway* throughout the region with the UAE accounting for over half of the active projects across all segments compared to the rest of the region. With urban development accounting for a large proportion of the projects, there is a clear need for industry players to differentiate their offering and diversify to remain competitive in our challenging market.”
According to a recent report from the Dubai Land Department (DLD), there is a clear shift in the market with developers focusing on new opportunities and finding niches in the market - such as co-working and co-living spaces – a prime example of which is the UNA Apartments project. UNA Apartments are for the fast-paced entrepreneurs and creative minds seeking a collaborative, sustainable, and urban hub providing a holistic living environment.
Spanning over 90,350m2, UNA Apartments will require design and construction of two G+2P+9 storey buildings and is a mixed-use development with numerous retail areas on the ground floor. For a duration of 25 months, ECC will provide its dynamic engineering solutions to oversee and lead on the project’s design and construction.
UNA Apartments is a lifestyle residential community that will feature numerous retail areas, 192 studios, and 764 one-bedroom apartments. The main consultant on the project is Al Wasl Al Jadeed Consultants.
