Speaking on the company’s commitment to timely delivery in the current exceptional scenario, Francis Alfred, Managing Director and CEO of Sobha Realty, said: “Over the past few months, the world has witnessed unprecedented circumstances that have impacted the safety and well-being of populations across geographies and segments, leading to largescale economic disruption. But it is heartening to see how industries are endeavouring to adapt to the changing landscape.
“During this time, Sobha Realty seeks to prioritise the safety of our staff and fulfil our commitments to our clients. With a reputation for timely project deliveries and best-in-class residences in prime locations, we are proud to have weathered this phase with minimal disruptions to construction operations as we prepare for the scheduled handover of a series of projects within the Sobha Hartland development. This is testament to our unwavering commitment to offering exceptional services and experiences to our buyers and investors and to Dubai, which has distinguished itself as a global hub for real estate.”
He added: “We are confident that as a natural outcome of the multiple customer-focused initiatives and proactive measures the UAE government has implemented, the real estate market in Dubai will remain an attractive one for local and international buyers. As real estate developers, we need to focus on re-imagining the next normal and put in place strategies that are aligned with the UAE’s vision for economic recovery.”
