Emaar's Downtown Summer offer - Pay 75% Post-Handover

 Aug 03 2018  Downtown Burj Dubai  Apartments

Emaar has just launched a new summer promotion for its downtown properties such as Act One | Act Two & Downtown Views II. 

This offer is valid for a limited time only and only valid on apartments in Downtown Views II and Act One | Act Two. 

  • 5 Years Post-Handover Payment Plan 
  • 4% Dubai Land Department Registration Fee Waiver (Paid by Emaar on customer's behalf)
  • 3 Year Service Charge Waiver 


  • 2 Bedroom apartments starting from AED 2,274,888 
  • 3 Bedroom apartments starting from AED 2,961,888 

Payment Plan 

  • 5% Down Payment 
  • 20% During construction period (4 installments of 5%) 
  • 75% Post Completion (16 installments of 5%) over 5 years 

This is probably one of the best investment opportunities available currently in Downtown, as an investor's return can be maximized due to the following: 

  1. No Service Charges for 3 Years - meaning all returns net to investor
  2. Post handover payment plan - 5% is payable every 4 months or so. Once your property is ready, it can easily be rented out, with rents being used to cover installments. 
  3. Capital Appreciation - Downtown has generally been a hot spot in terms of capital appreciation. When the market is moving upward, the first properties to pick up in terms of value are the Downtown properties, given their central location and high quality. Downtown is a secure investment for any investor, given that its an Emaar project and master development, its location, and the nearby attractions. Downtown Dubai is a location that cannot be replicated as it hosts the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall, the world's tallest tower and the world's largest mall.  It is a tourist destination. It will take many years to replicate such a master development in another part of Dubai, hence making it one of the most unique developments in the city. 

Downtown Views II 

  • Downtown Views II is a high-end residential development by Dubai Properties located across Dubai Mall. 
  • Completion is scheduled for December 2020. 
  • Units will have views of the Dubai Mall, DIFC, The Creek Tower, and Burj Khalfa.  
  • Downtown Views will have a link connecting it directly to Dubai Mall 

Act One | Act Two 

  • Act One | Act Two was one of the last residential developments to be launched within Downtown Dubai. 
  • It will be part of the high-end opera district with Downtown. 
  • Completion is scheduled for November 2020. 
  • Units will offer views of Burj Khalifa, Downtown, Fountains, Business Bay and the Opera District.  

This is a very good opportunity to buy an apartment in Downtown Dubai. Contact for more information about the two projects and this summer offer by Emaar.
