RAK Properties Adds More Units To Flamingo Villa Community

Flamingo Villas, the flagship development of RAK Properties, was launched during Cityscape last year.

Ras Al Khaimah-based real estate developer RAK Properties, has announced the addition of more units to its Flamingo Villas project.

The company said that it decided to add more units to the community after the first phase recorded strong investor interest. However, the developer did not disclose the number of new units being added to the community.

Flamingo Villas, its flagship project, comprises 104 sea-view villas located on the coast line in Mina Al Arab and was launched at Cityscape Global last year.

The sales of the new villas will start this weekend at the RAK Properties sales office in Mina Al Arab Lagoon in Ras al Khaimah, the developer said in a statement.

“Investor confidence continues to ride high for Ras Al Khaimah, with many businesses and investment opportunities coming to set up shop here,” said Rashed Al Khatri, director of marketing and sales, RAK Properties.

“This upbeat atmosphere has helped generate strong response for our Flamingo Villas project, prompting us to add more villas to address the demand of those wanting to buy into the development.”

The developer also launched another major waterfront property called Lagoon Heights at Cityscape Global last year. It features two 20-storey mixed used buildings with apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms.

RAK Properties, which announced a net profit of Dhs151 million for 2013, said that it has delivered a number of units in the northern emirate.

“In 2013, we handed over 192 residential units, including villas, townhouses, apartments and commercial offices in Mina Al Arab and Julphar Tower in Ras Al Khaimah and RAK Tower in Reem Island in Abu Dhabi,” said Mohammad Sultan Al Qadi, managing director and CEO, RAK Properties.

The property developer, listed on the Abu Dhabi Stock Exchange, also proposed a five per cent cash dividend for its shareholders, it said in an earlier statement.

Al Qadi added that real estate prices in the UAE are expected to rise following Dubai’s successful Expo 2020 bid and expects the positive sentiments prevailing in the market to spill over to Ras Al Khaimah’s property sector as well.

“The leasing of residential, offices and retail space has seen a noticeable increase and this improvement is expected to continue during 2014,” he said referring to the northern emirate’s property rates.

According to an Asteco report, apartment rental rates in Ras Al Khaimah increased year-on-year by 18 per cent in 2013 while rents rose by six per cent in the fourth quarter of 2013 alone.
