Victory Heights Phase One Villas Nearing CompletionWednesday, July 14, 2010
The developer of Victory Heights in Dubai said Tuesday that all 794 phase one villas in the residential golfing development will be complete and delivered to owners by the end of 2010. In the first six months of the year the community has reached a number of key milestones, with more than 70 per cent of the sold villas handed over to home owners and many more of the high-end properties completed and awaiting final sign-off for delivery. Three of the seven villages that make up the golfing community have been fully handed over. "Construction and delivery of Victory Heights' luxury villas has moved apace during the first half of the year, despite the downturn in Dubai's real estate industry experienced last year. We have been able to meet some important milestones," said Yasser Abdul Rahman Al Raee, General Manager, Victory Heights, which is a Dh2.5 billion joint venture between the Bahrian Investment Bank Arcapita and Dubai Sports City. More than 400 families have already moved into homes giving a community feel to the development, which surrounds the greens and lakes of the award winning The Els Club golf course.
Construction has also commenced on the project's first community centre which will offer residents a wide range of recreational facilities, including swimming pools, children's play areas, basketball courts and barbeque areas. "We are proud of this unique project and pledge to continue to deliver high quality homes, beautifully landscaped green spaces and top of the range community facilities for all our residents to enjoy," concluded Al Raee. Villas in Victory Heights are built in three different styles; authentic Spanish Andalusian, bold Mediterranean, and classic European styles, which surround the greens of the award-winning The Els Club golf course, giving the development a green and peaceful atmosphere. Victory Heights lies in the heart of Dubai Sports City which later this year will be home to five Sporting Academies offering world-class coaching to children of all ages in football, hockey, rugby, swimming and cricket. The city also hosts the International Cricket Stadium, where national and international cricket and football matches are played, as well as The Els Club and The Butch Harmon School of Golf where golfers of all levels and ages can practice their game.Source: Gulf News
