A total of 302 units will be launched from the master-planned residential development’s fourth phase, simultaneously marking the launch of Bareem Townhouses. A sales event for the phase will be held at the Ritz-Carlton, DIFC, this Saturday.

Bareem is a cluster of two- and three-bedroom homes, targeted towards couples and young families.

Phase 4 is due to be handed over by the end of 2019, and includes the four- and five-bedroom Signature Villas collection.

Commenting on the project’s progress, HE Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, chairman of Arada, said: “With only one more phase to come before Arada’s first project, Nasma Residences, is completely sold out, we are expecting a significant response from investors and end-users.

“The Bareem Townhouses at Nasma Residences are an excellent addition to the homes on offer at this well-designed community; they have been created with owners’ interests at heart, and we look forward to delivering them towards the end of next year.”
