Sudhakar R. Rao, Managing Director of Gemini Property Developers, said, “The awarding of the piling and shoring contract comes within weeks after getting the necessary permissions from relevant government authorities and reflect our determination to carry out the construction works well before the commercial launch of the project.”
“This is due to our strong ethical business policies to first build and then sell to the property buyers – as seeing is believing. The construction of the Symphony – Business Bay reinforces our faith in Dubai market. It also begins at a time when we are getting ready to deliver our first project – Splendor at MBR City– which creates a benchmark for quality property.”
The construction of the Symphony project also coincides with the completion of the Splendor – the company’s maiden real estate project in Dubai – which has been well-received by the investors and end-users. Located at Sobha Hartland – with easy accessibility from all parts of Dubai, the Splendor offers breath-taking views of the Ras Al Khor sanctuary, Burj Khalifa and The Tower – the new iconic landmark project being developed at Dubai Creek Harbour.
