The titles of two of the 12 projects that the Dubai developer Samana planned to debut this year were inspired by Greek islands.
At Dubai Studio City, the “Santorini” and “Mykonos” projects will each require 320 million dirhams to build.
Imran Farooq, chief executive officer of Samana Developers, stated that “we (are) going to develop an island design and feel in new projects.” The COVID-19 outbreak motivated us to pursue island designs with sustainable and healthy living conditions.
In the designs, environmental features have been incorporated and added to the energy efficiency. This includes green areas and solar panels for in-house power generation. “In addition, we have created an island-style living where the water, fresh air, and plantation will be aplenty,” said Farooq. “Island-living is a new concept in Dubai real estate that European buyers love and feel at home with.”
The Santorini project, which is slated for an April 2025 handover, will be located across from the Dubai Autodrome and ten minutes from Global Village and IMG World. It will have 157 private pool-equipped studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units.
The 198-unit Building, which would cost Dh170 million, is anticipated to be finished in July 2025.
