Firas Al Msaddi … targeting Dh1.5bn sales at City Walk

Fäm Properties tops $353.9m in City Walk residential sales

DUBAI, August 7, 2017

Fäm Properties, a leading real estate brokerage in Dubai, has topped Dh1.3 billion ($353.93 million) in residential property sales at City Walk, the new destination developed and managed by Meraas in the heart of Jumeirah, Dubai.

Fäm Properties CEO Firas Al Msaddi said the bulk of the sales was to first-time buyers, while just over Dh325 million ($88.48 million) worth of sales were in the secondary market.

He believes the volume of sales delivers a strong message to both developers and investors about the importance of understanding, and capitalising on, the dynamics of supply and demand in the Dubai property market.

“It shows how important it is that developers study the current type and volume of property supply as well as demand,” he said. “This will allow them to create an exclusive product with unique specifications and features that fashion a new type of living experience, rather than duplicate something already in good supply.

“At the same time, there’s a lesson here for investors about picking developments and properties that deliver new and more attractive lifestyle offerings to continuously attract end-users,” he said.

City Walk is the only freehold, modern, low rise development in Jumeirah with exclusive retail and entertainment components. The five-and six-storey pavilion-style City Walk Residences are complemented by many first-time shopping, entertainment, hospitality and wellness options.

The project will house signature hotels, more than 300 retail brands and a High Street Boulevard featuring boutiques, galleries, restaurants and cafés.

Al Msaddi continued: “We were the first real estate company to start promoting City Walk to investors after Meraas launched sales, and we have channelled a great deal of capital investment under our control into the project because of its unique appeal.”

Now targeting Dh1.5bn in overall sales at City Walk by end of Q3 2017, fäm Properties is using an 18-strong team of real estate advisors for all property management, leasing and sales requirements on site, while its engineering team is handling handover and snagging.

Special attractions at City Walk include the 20,000-capacity Dubai Arena and the Green Planet Bio-dome which recreates a tropical forest with 3,000 plants and animals. – TradeArabia News Service
