Rakeen to showcase new design of Dhs60bn Dana Island project at Cityscape Dubai 2008

United Arab Emirates: Saturday, October 04 - 2008 @ 14:16

Rakeen has booked Stand ZG 20 of the Zaabeel Hall for its meticulously conceptualised exhibition, which will focus on the groundbreaking features of its newest island-themed destination as well as other key projects in Ras Al Khaimah

Rakeen’s constant strive for perfection, in order to satisfy their customers’ needs and wishes, has resulted in an improved design and new master plan of Dana Island. With this impressive achievement now every unit has either sea access or view, and new plots have been created, which will be introduced to the market during Cityscape.

“From the state-of-the-art, habitat-preserving dredging technique being employed, to its visionary design concept, Dana Island is truly a class of its own. It is a concrete representation of the vision of Ras Al Khaimah, and realises Rakeen’s core values of sustainability, responsibility and prosperity. Through our participation at Cityscape Dubai, Rakeen is pleased to provide the public a more detailed overview of the important features of Dana Island, and discuss the reasons why we believe this project is poised to become one of the major economic catalysts of the emirate,”

said Marc-Henri Veyrassat, Chief Operating Officer, Rakeen.

Dana Island has been developed to accommodate a range of commercial and residential complexes along with hotels and other forms of leisure and recreational facilities. The project extends seven kilometres into the sea and creates a total of more than 50 kilometres of new coastline featuring white sand beaches that are maintained according to world-class standards.

Moreover, Rakeen has rejected “hostile dredging” techniques to create the man-made island and has employed a more environmentally friendly approach for the construction of the mega project. Consequently, Dana Island has been optimised to provide better water circulation, preserve marine life and ultimately enhance the living standard of the community development.

Rakeen has also lined up an exciting array of other projects for the exhibition, including the Al Marjan Island, Bab Al Bahr, RAK Financial City, Gateway City, RAK Convention Centre and Banyan Tree Resort. Furthermore, Rakeen has an impressive portfolio of projects in other countries, including the Tbilisi Uptown and Tbilisi Heights in Georgia; Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo; and another mixed-use project in Isfahan, Iran.

In addition to positioning themselves and their projects in the market, Rakeen also act as an ambassador for Ras Al Khaimah, the emerging emirate offering an attractive living alternative. Ras Al Khaimah combines natural beauty, a charming atmosphere, breathtaking surroundings, a rich heritage and genuine people with a prosperous economy, a fruitful business culture and vast shopping & leisure facilities.
