The Pearl and Gewan Islands Projects
The United Development Company (UDC), a Qatari shareholding company, entered a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with The Commercial Bank (CBQ) with an aim to provide attractive home loans for UDC properties at its flagship developments, The Pearl and Gewan Islands.
As part of the agreement, which was signed during a ceremony held at UDC Tower in The Pearl Island, UDC property buyers will be able to apply with Commercial Bank for a home loan of up to 70% of the property value and tenure up to 20 years, as well as benefitting from fast loan processing and flexible added-value options and payment plans. These finance arrangements will appeal to those wishing to live in the property themselves, and also to investors both locally and internationally as Commercial Bank offer mortgages for non-residents wishing to facilitate property ownership in Qatar.
Commenting on the occasion, UDC President, Chief Executive Officer and Member of The Board Ibrahim Jassim Al Othman, stated: "We are delighted to partner with Commercial Bank to offer financing facilities to our clients in Qatar and abroad, and to complement UDCs current post-completion payment plan offering. This would mean more choice to avail unmatched financing solutions, including attractive home loan rates and faster approvals while investing in exquisite highly sought-after residences at The Pearl and Gewan Islands. In addition, the agreement falls in line with UDCs efforts to provide flexible and convenient services for its clients which further reinforces UDCs position as a preferred developer and helps attract more investors from the local and international markets".
For his part, Joseph Abraham, Group CEO of Commercial Bank commented: "We are very pleased to partner with UDC to launch their prestigious Crystal Residence and provide a range of mortgage solutions tailored to needs of clients. This continues the strong partnership between UDC and CB to jointly serve their clients with market leading seamless financing options." While completed units at The Pearl Island continue to be in great demand, Crystal Residence is set to attract a remarkable number of business and individual investors from both Qatar and abroad thanks to its amenity-rich, smart, and sustainable features in addition to the unmatched location at Gewan Island which promises to be Qatars most prestigious and exclusive address.
Crystal Residence consists of 15 luxurious mixed-use buildings, six to seven-story high, that sit at the heart of Gewan Island within a lively commercial and residential district, arranged around the pedestrian zone and Qatars longest climatized Crystal Walkway.
Crystal Residence consists of a total of 586 apartments overlooking the seaside or the Crystal Walkway, including one to three-bedroom units ranging between 90 to 240 sqm and four-bedroom duplexes with an area of 365 sqm. Residents have also access to exclusive world-class leisure facilities in addition to retail, entertainment, and dining outlets on the ground floor available to the public with ample parking spaces underground.
