Mr Atif Rahman, Director and Partner of Danube Properties, said, “These construction contracts reflects our deep commitment to our largest stakeholders – our valuable property buyers and investors – who have put their trust and hard-earned life savings in our projects to receive the keys to their dream homes.
 
“Since launching its first project in 2014, Danube Properties has been able to deliver two projects involving 302 residential units, worth Dh270 million – part of the company’s Dh2.84 billion-strong portfolio. In the next few weeks, we are preparing to deliver 525 residential units, including 171 townhouses and 354 apartments.
 
“As a committed property developer, we see ourselves as a custodian and responsible for the delivery of their dream home on time and with the promised quality and facilities. Construction contracts are part of the process and we try to constantly challenge ourselves on timely delivery and with quality beyond the buyers’ expectations.
 
“We work for our stakeholders – our buyers – and there’s nothing like seeing the smile of a happy customer. We strive to achieve that.”
 
Danube Properties, part of Dubai-based diversified conglomerate Danube Group, has launched nine residential projects, of which two have been delivered, two are getting ready for delivery while four others are at various stages of construction and one in tendering stage.
 
The company has one of the fastest development-to-delivery ratio in the region’s real estate market where timely delivery of properties remains a major challenge. That way, Danube Properties’ performance in construction and delivery is helping strengthen buyers’ trust in real estate.
