Wed, 05 Oct, 2016

DAMAC Properties today introduced AKOYA Selfie, a collection of stylish 3-bedroom villas located in a vibrant golf community at AKOYA Oxygen master development. AKOYA Selfie villas present young professionals, couples and families with a refreshing way of life, spacious living areas, low maintenance costs and modern amenities. DAMAC Properties is also presenting investors with the opportunity to buy AKOYA Selfie plots, enabling them to build their own dream homes according to their preferences and tastes.

Located in AKOYA Oxygen, a world-class golf community, AKOYA Selfie offers a world of amenities directly on residents’ doorsteps. From wide open spaces, breathtaking green escapes and retail therapy to a rainforest, hydroponic café and organic café, AKOYA Selfie is a place people can envisage themselves enjoying their home and the lifestyle it offers.

AKOYA Selfie villas will go on sale on Saturday, October 8, 2016 from 2pm to 10pm in Dubai at The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre, Samaya Ballroom A & B; in Abu Dhabi at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Meeting and Conference Center, Podium 4, Meeting Room 3; and in Al Ain at Al Ain Rotana hotel, Lulu Majlis, Ground Floor.

Ziad El Chaar, Managing Director, DAMAC Properties, said: “Launched under the theme ‘where I see myself’, AKOYA Selfie is our latest project innovation that caters to the needs of millennials and families who seek to be part of an international golf community that offers an all-encompassing and refreshing lifestyle. Unlike most cities around the world, the millennial population in Dubai is quite significant and therefore there is a need to offer real estate products that suit their tastes and savvy lifestyle.”

According to the Dubai Statistics Centre as of 2015, the median age of residents in Dubai lies between 30 and 34 years, falling well within the millennial segment of  25 to 39 years. This equates to 1.2 million and corresponds to 48% of the total population of Dubai. This high proportion of the millennial segment only reiterates their importance to the population of the emirate. According to a study on millennial first time home-buyers commissioned by Dubizzle recently, 44% of millennials intend to buy a home in the city within the next three years. Dubai’s ability to offer a tax-free, luxurious lifestyle was one of the main reasons Dubai was highly-regarded as a place to call home amongst western expats, and the  relatively  high salaries and disposable income makes purchasing a first home within reach for this age group.”

Facilities at AKOYA Selfie comprise private front and back gardens, separate living, dining areas and kitchen, plot title deed included with every villa, covered car parking, access to the world-class amenities of AKOYA Oxygen as well as some homes overlooking the Golf course.

AKOYA Selfie villas are located less than 20 minutes drive to downtown Dubai, Mall of the Emirates or Palm Jumeirah. Priced at AED 1.2 million and payable over three years with plot title deed with every purchase, each 3-bedroom villa offers a fantastic value as well as an attractive investment opportunity.  

AKOYA Oxygen is a breathtaking community in Dubai where luxurious homes will be surrounded by all things lush green. It melts away the hustle and bustle of urban life with an ecosystem that is unique in every way. Energy-efficient homes surrounded by enchanting lush greenery and cascading water features are just few of the many secrets at AKOYA Oxygen that will regale all those who live there.
