According to Kozbari, Polo Town Houses were delivered successfully last year and the company is now engaged in handing over the last batch of apartments in the Polo Residences project at Meydan. There are additional projects that will be adding Dh2 billion of investments till 2020 according to him. Two projects will also be launched in this year and are likely to be residential towers according to Kozbari.

Kozbari stated that the Dubai real estate was not saturated yet since there remained ample scope for new realty projects. He also added that the Emirate was witnessing tremendous growth backed by top-notch infrastructure. The starting prices for the 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments at this latest project at Dh795,000, Dh1.69 million and Dh2.94 million respectively.

Dubai, according to Kozbari is akin to New York, London and Paris and is not any common city. There is no city with the same infrastructure in the Middle East like Dubai, which includes economic, political and physical infrastructure. Dubai is also a safe bet in terms of investments according to Kozbari.
