Dubai-based wasl Asset Management Group is forging ahead with its wasl1 project in Dubai, with the appointment of contractors.

Enabling works are now under way following the appointment of Kele Contracting for Phase One of the project. Hills & Fort Construction is undertaking the infrastructure for the entire development.

Phase One of the project – Park Gate Residences – is located adjacent to Zabeel Park, where tenants will find contemporary apartments in four luxurious residential towers on two podiums. The 746 units offer tenants the option of one- to three-bedroom apartments as well as podium townhouses and penthouses, all of which overlook the lush green gardens of Zabeel Park.

Hesham Al Qassim, CEO of wasl Asset Management Group, said: “wasl1 is the latest milestone in our mission to provide Dubai with community living spaces that blend the best of city living with a lifestyle surrounded by bliss. It promises residents a peaceful island in the middle of the city, creating a sophisticated synergy between urban offerings and holistic balance that resonates with the modern-day buyer.”

Park Gate Residences will feature children’s play areas on the podium roofs; a gymnasium, a multi-purpose hall and another children’s play area; and a landscaped area with water features and a terrace with cafés and restaurants.
