Sales of the 104 apartments split over eight clusters, started last month, and according to the developers, 34 per cent of the project – a joint venture between Saudi Arabia’s Al Sharq Group and Qatar’s Al Mana Global – is already complete.
The two buildings have been broken up into eight “mansions”, or clusters.
each mansion contains its own dedicated parking, lobbies and lift entrance with just two apartments per floor. On the higher floors, there will be three simplex and two duplex apartments, all with their own private access.
The apartments range in size from 4,800 sq ft to 15,000 sq ft and in price from Dh12 million to Dh50m. Courtesy Alef Residences
