Tue, 30 Jan, 2024

UAE-based Al Qandeel Contracting LLC has been awarded a new contract of AED 180 million, for main works at DAMAC’s master development, DAMAC Hills 2.

The scope of works will include the construction of the main works package for 384 villas at the Verona cluster, located within the 55 million sq. ft. master community.

Verona will feature rows of 4-bedroom townhouses and will offer residents a state-of-the-art facilities for residents to enjoy including water parks, sports activities, and more.  

“Since the launch of Verona in the second half of last year we have seen strong interest in the cluster and community. It gives me great joy to see both demand as well as the progress our second master community has made and continues to grow each day. With a range of new amenities for our residents, including our own Malibu beach and a lazy river, we are happy to see the community continuing to attract investors and residents to DAMAC Hills 2,” said Mohammed Tahaineh, General Manager of DAMAC.

DAMAC Hills 2 offers Californian coastal vibe to Dubai and for the residents to enjoy.

Among the additions are a waterpark, a bird aviary, and an array of fields, pitches and courts for sports enthusiasts. The bird aviary will welcome birds of various species including the Glossy Ibis, Sun Conures, Vulturine Guineafowl, Rose-ringed Parakeet, Western bronze-naped Pigeons, Splendid Starlings, Blackcap Babblers, Lemon Doves and Black-bellied Sandgrouse. Residents can take a walk through the massive aviary whilst the birds perch and fly around them.  

In Water Town, residents can enjoy the laid-back vibes of Malibu Beach, similarly named after its predecessor, Malibu Bay in DAMAC Hills. While children can enjoy the wave pool and splash pads, the lazy river offers relaxation for others. Malibu Beach also includes VIP and regular cabanas, a big-screen TV, a juice bar, a beach volleyball court, open grass space, BBQ pits, kids’ play activity area, a surround sound system and a DJ booth. 

Other amenities include sports pitches that have been built across the community, an outdoor cinema, a dog park, a petting farm and jogging and cycling track. There are also tennis and basketball courts, a cricket pitch and vast spaces in the Central Park where residents can do yoga or any other type of fitness activity. 

The community has also opened two nurseries and its community mall is fully let. It includes a Carrefour grocery store, restaurants and other retail outlets.

Launched in 2014, DAMAC Hills 2 now is home to more than 30,000 residents, and came close after the successful opening of DAMAC’s first master community, DAMAC Hills. The developer launched its third master development in Dubai — DAMAC Lagoons late 2021.
