The fourth village of the Victory Heights development in Dubai Sports City is close to achieving a 100 per cent handover of residences, it has been announced.
Esmeralda village, the fourth of five villages that make up phase one of Victory Heights, consists of 198 luxury villas - 152 of which are now occupied by homeowners.
The community therefore joins the villages of Oliva, Estella and Carmen in reaching full handover, with the final village of Novelia set for completion by the end of 2010.
Yasser Abdulrahman Al Raee, general manager at Victory Heights, said: "The villas in Esmeralda have proved incredibly popular with buyers due to their high quality and spaciousness which is a trade-mark of all Victory Heights' properties."
The Esmeralda village runs along the edges of the Els Club golf course, which was designed by world champion golfer Ernie Els.
Dubai Sports City is also due to open five sporting academies offering world-class coaching to children of all ages in football, hockey, rugby, swimming and cricket by the end of the year.
