Real estate concept KOA has announced the launch of the second phase of KOA Canvas, with an additional 40 units and a boutique hotel, to to be designed by T.Zed Architects – the design firm behind the first phase of KOA Canvas.
KOA aims to bring a “new definition to residential living in the UAE”, targeting Generation Y as well as the region’s creatives and entrepreneurs who are looking for alternative living, away from the city centre and the residential tower boom. According to KOA, phase two was developed as a direct response to this positive market shift and demand.
“I am proud to have built a strong voice in the market to date and have been thrilled by the response so far. We’re delighted to see the changes that KOA has inspired in the market, with similar concepts starting to be announced across the region,” said Mohammed Zaal, CEO and founder of KOA.
“My goal was always to change the way people think about property in this market so it’s incredible to watch this all come to life and announce something new to come.”
Increasing the overall Canvas offering to 86 units, the second phase of the development will mark its final stage. Much like the first phase, the project will feature a minimalist, contemporary aesthetic and material finishes.
With the purpose of designing “for the next generation in the UAE”, smart architectural principles have been applied to the design which allows for connectable units throughout the building, allowing residents to purchase larger-sized apartments. Some of the ground floor units will include gardens, complete with landscaping that utilises indigenous plants and greenery.
The residential development will comprise six two-bedroom apartments, 23 one-bedroom apartments, and 11 studios.
The boutique hotel will feature 11 rooms inclusive of pool facilities and an F&B concept, following the same minimalist aesthetic of the KOA Canvas development.
The hotel will be situated adjacent to the fully-serviced hotel apartments, featuring views of the city skyline, while being away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
“Similar to all our launches, the boutique hotel and phase two apartments have had a meticulous research and development process to truly showcase the KOA ethos. We will continue to represent the next generation and evolution of residents in this market. Cultural enrichment is a key part of our development, ultimately empowering Dubai’s residents to make their home and their community unique to each individual,” Zaal said.
KOA has also commissioned T.Zed Architects to design its sales office which includes a versatile working space.
