Dubai government-owned developer Jumeirah Golf Estates is pressing ahead with plans to build 674 mid-market flats and 54 town houses after it awarded a contact for the work to Al Habtoor STFA Soil Group.
Construction work on the project, to be known as Alandalus, is scheduled to begin before the end of October and be completed before EXPO 2020.
Prices for the apartments will start from Dh597,000, the developer said.
Yousuf Kazim, chief executive of Jumeirah Golf Estates, said that the project was the first in the region to include mid market housing on a golf development.
Alandalus will also include shops, hotels, cafes and restaurants.
