Leasing of residential and retail units at Expo Village to be handled by Savills

The development comprises 2,273 residential apartments all located within four residential community clusters and 42 leasable retail units

Savills Dubai has confirmed that it has been appointed as the master agent for leasing apartments and retail units at Expo Village.

The residential units with Savills include studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments in various layouts and can be leased as furnished or unfurnished units. The apartments provide views of the community, Expo Park and Expo City Dubai, including the Al Wasl Dome, Savills said.

The apartments are said to be finished with premium materials and top-grade fittings, and maintained to the highest standard, with on-site security and maintenance. Allocated parking is provided with every apartment and there are plenty of visitor car parking areas, a statement from Savills noted.

In early October 2022, Savills revealed its top second home locations with an emphasis on wellness and, later in the month, the firm said it had made key appointments in its Saudi office.

“It is an absolute honour to be able to represent Dubai World Trade Centre and the landmark Expo Village development, which serves as the next chapter in the growth of the historic Expo site. Expo Village is a testament to the legacy of EXPO 2020 – a flourishing community designed with amenities that enrich the lives of residents, with everything located within walking distance so that people can spend more time doing what they love. The project will surely become an example for the world to witness, just as the event itself was,” said Katie Burnell, Associate Director – Head of Residential Agency for Abu Dhabi and Exclusive Leasing Dubai.

According to Savills, Expo Village is set to welcome its new residents as Expo City Dubai officially re-opened its doors to visitors earlier this month. The residential community was originally developed by the Dubai World Trade Centre as the official residential community of EXPO 2020 Dubai.

Located minutes away from the EXPO 2020 Metro Station and the Dubai Exhibition Centre, Expo Village comprises 2,273 residential apartments all located within four residential community clusters. As the only ready-to-move residential apartments directly connected to the Expo City Dubai site, Expo Village is a pedestrian-friendly community with the 37,000sqm Expo Park at its heart, Savills explained.

Mukesh Ambani purchased Dubai’s most expensive villa for $163mn in mid-October 2022.

Designed to accommodate up to 5,000 residents, Expo Village also features 42 leasable retail units to serve the growing demand for the community’s daily lifestyle and convenience amenities. The Expo Village’s onsite retail offering currently includes a community supermarket, pharmacy, medical clinic and several food and beverage outlets.

Expo Village is the third major exclusive leasing instruction Savills Middle East has won in as many months. It comes on the heels of premium residential buildings Capital Views and Ajwan Towers in Abu Dhabi, the statement concluded.
