DESTINATION DUBAI From modest beginnings as a small, creek-side settlement, Dubai has seen more growth in the last 60 years than most cities do in centuries. Today it towers proudly as a global metropolis, a multinational hub, and a glittering showpiece DUBAI of human ambition and vision. More than 200 nationalities currently call the emirate home and traffic through the impressive and expanding Dubai International Airport is estimated to reach 75 million by 2015 and 90 million by 2018. With like these, it’s clear that Dubai’s bold evolutionary course is only set to continue, making your new home in The Hills not just a safe haven for your family, but also a secure investment for your future. THE EMAAR LIFESTYLE Over the course of its decade-and-a-half history, Emaar has pioneered the rise of integrated communities in Dubai, radically changing the face of a city and a nation in the process. However, Emaar’s philosophy of development is a holistic one, creating considerately envisioned homes that seamlessly incorporate urban living with work, play, leisure and retail. Emaar is the epitome of a ‘Lifestyle Brand’, having etched its name forever into the annals of history with its flagship mega-development Downtown Dubai, home to unparalleled architectural and engineering feats such as Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Mall and The Dubai Fountain. Continuous innovation and evolution that pre-empt consumers’ needs for a better life and uncompromising quality are the cornerstones of Emaar’s continued success and growth. Testament to the fact are accolades that include ‘Best Developer in the Middle East and North Africa’ at the 2009 Euromoney Real Estate Awards; ‘Best Developer in the UAE’ and ‘Best Developer in Saudi Arabia’; ‘Middle East Business Global Competitiveness Excellence Award 2009’; the coveted ‘Dubai Quality Award’ for quality and service excellence; and the first-ever ‘Euromoney Gulf Real Estate Award for the Best Overall Developer in the UAE’. EMIRATES LIVING The Emirates Living community is currently comprised of four distinct developments, namely The Lakes, The Meadows, The Springs and Emirates Hills. These, while individually unique, share a common landscaping approach that features serene waterways and abundant greenery. SERENE WATERWAYS AND ABUNDANT GREENERY. The Lakes offer family freehold homes in two to five bedrooms. Tranquil and scenic, its villas are situated between two world-class golf courses, The Montgomerie at Emirates Hills, and Emirates Golf Course. The Lakes has four established neighbourhoods - Deema, Forat, Maeen, Zulal, as well as a new community, Ghadeer, which was handed over in 2009. The Meadows feature verdant streets, lined with trees and distinctive, spacious villas that range from three to seven bedrooms. These two-storey homes cater specifically to Dubai's young professional families, who appreciate the advantage of living within a secure, gated community, while retaining the beauty of a picturesque setting. The Springs have been landscaped to create lush, green surroundings that feature parks, lakes, and recreational areas. A gated community with town houses set on scenic waterways, The Springs provides a perfect, secure environment for young families and couples. Emirates Hills is known for its luxurious villas and mansions that gaze out over the lush green fairways of world-class, 18-hole Championship Golf Course, the Montgomerie. Emirates Hills’ well-appointed villas and handsome, private neighborhoods offer a harmonious balance of manicured natural beauty and a host of convenient and lifestyle-enriching facilities. THE HILLS WAKE UP TO A WORLD OF GREEN. Life in harmony with its surroundings Beyond the hustle and bustle of the city centre, but well within the bounds of ultra-convenience, The Hills community comes into being. The site is located close to the immensely popular Emaar Greens area and within Emirates Living’s The Meadows and The Springs. Breathtaking by day, the views are equally stunning by night when the golf course is lit and the Marina Towers twinkle in the distance, their combined ambiance reflecting both the calm, leisurely green landscape and the excitement of city life in the distance The Hills has been designed with an emphasis on sustainability and adherence to Green Code requirements. The entire life cycle of the building and its components is considered, as well as the economic and environmental impact and performance. By promoting resource conservation practices, including energy effciency, renewable energy, waste minimization, and water conservation, a healthy and comfortable environment is created. A COMMUNITY WITHIN A COMMUNITY The Hills development is privileged in that upon completion, it will have immediate access to high-quality infrastructure that already supports the neighbouring communities. The development will share the warmth of an established and mature residential centre, bustling with vibrancy, yet offering the peace and tranquility expected from such a renowned suburban setting. GREEN AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE The Hills will overlook the world-famous, Emirates Golf Course, stretching across 13,375 metres of lush greenery, in two 18-hole, championship courses that have played host to some of the best practitioners of the sport. Add to that club facilities, like award-winning French restaurant, Le Classique; a poolside terrace; Fit Lab Gym; and Bespoke Wellness centre, and it creates a paradise, both for avid golfing enthusiasts, as well as anyone who simply enjoys the lavish luxury and beauty that life on a golf course has to offer. ARCHITECTURE Aesthetically, form follows function with an eye for proportion and tasteful minimalism, drawing from a number of design techniques. In this way, spaces are created that effortlessly provide a sense of comfort and contentment for the people who live in them. At the development’s centre, buildings will rise to 15 storeys, with heights gradually reducing towards the site’s outer edges. The buildings at either end of the site will have heights of between 12 and 15 storeys. The majority of bedrooms will feature walk-in closets to allow ample room for storage, and master, en-suite bathrooms, will incorporate two washbasins set together on an expansive vanity platform SPACES DESIGNED FOR LIVING Each apartment’s interior design will be such as to provide a spacious, modern and flexible environment that epitomizes style and luxury. Open-plan living, dining, and kitchen areas mean that residents will enjoy the freedom of more space inside, while balconies will be large enough to allow for at-home, al fresco dining. WHERE CONVENIENCE CONVERGES In addition to providing an ideal setting for restaurants, supermarkets, and retail outlets, the development will feature a host of outdoor amenities. Residents will have access to a number of swimming pools, including an adults’ pool, a separate lap pool for exercise, a smaller pool where children can play safely, and a Jacuzzi. Sun beds and enclosed cabanas will provide a place to relax and enjoy the sun in true resort style. VIDA HOTELS AND RESORTS The Hills will comprise four low-rise buildings: two dedicated residential buildings, in addition to a Vida Hotel and Vida serviced apartments. Emaar Hospitality Group extends its portfolio with this new ‘Alive and Inspired’ brand, VIDA Hotels and Resorts. An urban hub where a new generation of business executives, entrepreneurs and leisure travellers come to stay, play and connect, Vida Hotels and Resorts cater to the young and young-at-heart. The hotels will be distinguished by neutral colours and a chic ambience, good food inspired by Middle East and international cuisine, and the convenience of the latest technology. CONNECTED TO YOUR WORLD Accessibility has been a key consideration throughout the design process and The Hills connects readily to Sheikh Zayed Road, as well as the Dubai Marina and other metro stations. There are entrance points at either end of the development and a simple strategy of separating residential trafficc from visitor and retail traffic at those points will be put in place. A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE OF DUBAI The Hills development marries tranquility with connectivity. A verdant community on the verge of a golf course, with a vibrant hub mere minutes away from one of the world’s most prominent metropolises. The warm shores of the Arabian Gulf wait on its doorstep, while world-class shopping malls lie just beyond. To be a resident of The Hills is to take full advantage of all that Dubai has to offer, and to carve a little piece of all that out for yourself.
