The first properties on a Dubai development by US billionaire businessman Donald Trump have been released for sale.
The Trump Estates includes more than 100 luxury villas overlooking a golf course designed by Gil Hanse within the Akoya by DAMAC development, off Umm Suqeim Road.
The interiors are the work of Trump’s daughter Ivanka.
“[The design] is different from what we usually do in the market,” Damac Properties managing director Ziad El Chaar told Arabian Business in February.
“You’re going to see villas which are much more open; they have much more glass facade.”
Trump said the villas would be of a new level of luxury.
“The Trump Estates, with its unparalled location, overlooking the spectacular Trump International Golf Club, Dubai will set the new standard of luxury in the Middle East and beyond,” he said.
“The initial interest has been tremendous and we are looking forward to providing the very best in quality, services and amenities at the Trump Estates.
“Dubai is one of the top destinations in the world. It’s a fantastic place. Dubai has stabilised and remains a strong focal point for development, now and for the future. I see it as having an amazing future. I have been to Dubai and I will be visiting more in the future. It is truly spectacular – there’s no place like it.”
Amenities include a swimming pool, tennis courts, gymnasium, media room, lounge and coffee shop.
Trump is also working with Damac to develop a clubhouse, spa, restaurant and boutique hotel with the community.
“The Trump Estates are set to be the most desirable properties on the market in Dubai,” El Chaar said.
“We are working together to provide the highest level of luxury possible and The Trump Estates will be the realisation of that vision.”
