Would you live in one of Dubai's Trump-branded villas?
If you haven’t had enough of the Trump frenzy this week, then you can still take that last and biggest step – buying yourself a Trump branded home in Dubai.
Developer Damac started a commercial venture with Donald Trump back in 2013 when it launched the Trump International Golf Club. This is part of its mega AED22 billion Akoya project now taking shape in Dubailand.
Within the project there are two Trump branded projects: Trump Estates, which are a set of 100 villas that are specifically designed by the Trump Organisation. There is also Trump PVRT villas, which is a gated community overlooking the Trump International Golf Course.
According to Land Sterling, 5 bedroom villas in Trump Estates are currently selling from between AED6.3 million to AED6.5 million. The Trump PVRT villas are a bit more pricey, starting at AED6.5m. These ones look quite fancy. According to the website, “each mansion comes with its own Trump Card, which opens doors to a host of privileges across the globe. From the glamour of New York City and Las Vegas to exotic Waikiki and Ireland’s historic Doonbeg, you’ll enjoy stellar service and exclusive benefits in signature Trump style.”
These prices are around 7 percent down on last year, but that seems to be more in line with the general slump in property prices rather than any negative sentiment around the new US president.
And if you don’t fancy any of those, you might not have to wait too much longer for more Trump projects. The new president said he had been approached by Damac earlier this year for a new $2 billion (AED7.3 billion) project in Dubai. Although he turned that down, his company is now said to be in talks with Damac over other new developments.
But given all the controversy surrounding Trump, what do you think? Would you be happy living in a Trump-branded home? Let us know…
