The developer reported the land sales in its Al Furjan and Jumeirah Village Triangle projects.



Nakheel announced that it had closed land sales worth more than Dhs162 million in two of its Dubai developments – Al Furjan and Jumeirah Village Triangle.

In Al Furjan, the company sold plots of land for 91 townhouses for Dhs70 million and four commercial plots for Dhs26 million.

Each plot covers between 4,800 and 13,000 sq ft and prices range from Dhs1.1 million to Dhs3.3 million.

A new community retail and recreation centre is also due to open within the development early next year.

Meanwhile, Nakheel also sold 45 villa plots in Jumeirah Village Triangle, a smaller development located within the 6,000-home Jumeirah Village project.

The sales indicate the heighted investor confidence in Dubai’s real estate market, the company said in a statement.
