DUBAI – In the world of staff accommodations, it appears the best is yet to come in Dubai South Properties where the next modern staff homes are being built for a total of Dh500 million.
Sakany, the Dubai South Properties’ first leasehold staff accommodation development, aims to become the regional benchmark for safe and secure housing for blue collar workers.
Sakany currently accommodates 7,000 people, accounting for around 80 percent occupancy across 10 buildings. Phase 2 of the development was recently launched, offering 900 additional rooms in six new buildings.
Residents at Sakany can enjoy free Wi-Fi, self-cooking facilities, a dining hall for more than 2,000 people and a multi-purpose hall, all of which are accessible round-the-clock.
For leisure, it has landscaped courtyards, bicycle racks, and a sports complex for football, cricket, badminton, basketball, and volleyball, which are open round-the-clock.
There are also parking spaces for every resident and a covered bus station.
Sakany also has a gated, female-only building with its own grocery store located on the premises.
“Developing a purpose-built complex that offered an environment conducive to fostering an engaged, active and productive workforce was a priority for Dubai South from day one, when we set out to develop Sakany,” said Mohammed Al Awadhi of Dubai South Properties.
Sakany will soon have a new retail centre that will include a supermarket, cafeteria, four restaurants, barbershop, pharmacy, clinic, electronic and mobile shops, and a money exchange outlet. ICA/Expat Media
