ETA Star, a leading freehold property developer in the UAE has launched its latest project, The Summit, a 38 storeyed commercial and office tower located between Dubai Media City and Dubai Marina on Sheikh Zayed Road.
The AED 700 million project was launched at a press conference held at Dubai’s Emirates Towers Hotel on Sunday, June 25, 2006. The modern tower is offered with the first-of-its-kind condo office concept which guarantees occupancy and investment return through a special rental pool system.
Abid A. Junaid, Executive Director, ETA Star said: “The Summit tower will cater to small and medium investors looking for a guaranteed tenancy occupation and steady return on their investment. We are glad to bring a reputed global organisation Colliers International as our strategic partner to deliver this promise.”
Colliers International is a global real estate property consultancy firm with 241 offices in 54 countries, managing over 600 million sq ft of space worldwide.
John Davis, CEO, Colliers International Middle East said: “The Dubai property sector is becoming increasingly competitive, making it necessary for developers to adopt a structured, professional and research-led approach to their projects. We are delighted to partner with ETA Star for The Summit project and pass on the benefits of our global structure, resources, experience and in-depth regional real estate knowledge.”
The Summit takes its name from the tower’s imposing design and offers a total built-up area of approximately 1 million square feet and priced at AED 1300 per square foot onwards. Comprising four basement floors, a ground floor for commercial space, six parking podiums and 31 floors of office space, the tower will bring a total of 420 small office units ranging from 1100 to 1200 square feet.
In partnership with Colliers International Middle East, ETA Star will also offer outright buyers the option of leasing out office spaces by placing these in a rental pool. Investors in The Summit will thus be able to earn steady returns without the bother of handling leasing and rental tasks. Colliers will take over the management and leasing of offices and will pass on rental incomes to the respective owners.
“Our project’s location between Dubai Media City and Dubai Marina is itself presents an excellent ROI proposition for investors. The professional standards and expertise of our partner Colliers International Dubai will further contribute to efficient management and bring sound financial gains for our investors,” Junaid added.
The Summit will also be one of the first commercial properties in the region with upto 80% finance, being offered by First Gulf Bank.
