United Development Company (UDC) inaugurated its 900sqm pavilion at Cityscape Qatar 2021 on Sunday, featuring scale models of its flagship developments, The Pearl-Qatar and Gewan Island.
Speaking to Gulf Times on the sidelines of the event, UDC president and CEO Ibrahim Jassim al-Othman, who is also a member of the board, said the sales launch of UDC’s Crystal Residence at Gewan Island was well-received by property finders.
“We’re launching 70 apartments and already we have bookings as much as almost 40% even before we started, and that’s a good sign. The area, which spans 11,000sqm, is air-conditioned. The other side facing Qanat Quartier is also climate controlled and this huge area will provide convenience to the shoppers, buyers, and other visitors of the area,” al-Othman said.
At Cityscape, which will run until October 19 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC), UDC is showcasing attractive properties for sales and leasing, as well as a range of attractive in-house financing plans and promotional leasing offers.
UDC chairman Turki bin Mohamed al-Khater said, “We are excited to be returning to Cityscape after weathering economic uncertainty linked to the pandemic. We will therefore be capitalising on our participation to reconnect with our existing customer base and learn more about the changing needs and preferences of our clients.
“UDC’s ongoing strategy is focused on delivering our current inventory of residential units at The Pearl-Qatar. Meanwhile, we are launching the first phase of Crystal Residence sales, which we expect will enthral visitors as another high-quality product that translates UDC’s commitment to crafting unique lifestyle and leisure experiences that our customers have come to expect from us.”
Al-Othman said UDC is also announcing the Corinthia Yacht Club, which is an international yacht club inside The Pearl-Qatar. Construction is ongoing, al-Othman said, adding that UDC aims to complete the facility by the third quarter of next year “in time for the FIFA World Cup.”
He said UDC has been a long-term and essential participant in Cityscape Qatar and recognises the event’s valuable influence on the local real estate market.
“We have therefore chosen this platform to launch one of our most promising projects, Crystal Residence at Gewan Island. As for existing projects, we are presenting exciting sales and leasing offers on our completed projects in various precincts of The Pearl-Qatar, including the recently launched Giardino Gardens villa compound.
“We also want to showcase our portfolio of upcoming diversified projects, mainly Giardino Mall, Floresta Galleria, Floresta Gardens’ three residential villa compounds, United School International, and Corinthia Yacht Club at The Pearl-Qatar, in addition to Crystal Walkway’s retail hub and Corinthia Gewan Island Qatar hotel with its connected golf course and beach club at Gewan Island,” al-Othman said.
Crystal Residence, which is the highlight of UDC’s participation in Cityscape Qatar 2021, is set to attract a remarkable number of businesses and individual investors from both Qatar and abroad thanks to its amenity-rich, smart, and sustainable features, in addition to the unmatched location at Gewan Island, which promises to be Qatar’s most prestigious and exclusive address.
Crystal Residence consists of 15 luxurious mixed-use buildings, six-to-seven-storey high that sit at the heart of Gewan Island within a lively commercial and residential district, arranged around the canopied pedestrian zone and Qatar’s longest climatised ‘Crystal Walkway’.
Crystal Residence consists of a total of 586 apartments overlooking the seaside or the Crystal Walkway, including one to three-bedroom units ranging between 90sqm and 240sqm, and four-bedroom duplexes with an area of 365sqm.
Residents have also access to exclusive world-class leisure facilities in addition to retail, entertainment, and dining outlets on the ground floor available to the public with ample parking spaces underground.
