The company behind the Great Britain island on The World Islands, Dubai said it will shortly unveil plans to turn the island into a luxury resort.
Q Group said the island will feature luxury hotels, private villas and water villas, as well as hotel serviced apartments.
The development plans also includes an event and wedding venue, offshore restaurants and bars, and water-based experiences for people of all ages, the company said in a statement.
With a big recruitment drive under way, the group is now entering a new phase of expansion, including the launch of its five-star resort on The World Islands, Dubai and the establishment of an investment fund linked to major leisure, entertainment and hospitality projects.
Qurashi said Q Development will start construction next month on a residential block at Dubai’s Jumeirah Village Circle, with another at Motor City awaiting final planning approvals.
Both projects, and others in the pipeline, will take services for residents to a new level, he said.
“We need to match their needs, not just build another apartment block with a gym and a swimming pool,” said Qurashi. “Service charges shouldn’t just be about cleaning the corridors and changing the light bulbs.”
“We’re seeing a significant change in attitude as the real estate market here matures,” said Qurashi. “Projects are now more focused on a sustainable, long-term approach rather than the old one of build it, sell it and move on,” he said.
