Building specifications
Oia Residence is a six-storey residential building in Motor City, DubaiLand, Dubai.
The developer
The project was developed by Union Properties.
Construction began in May 2016.
The development contains a total of 269 units.
Unit layouts
Oia Residence comprises a mix of one- , two- , three- and four-bedroom apartments as well as 28 duplexes.
The substructure contains one basement level which is used for parking.
Amenities include 24-hour security, assigned underground parking, a cafe, a children's swimming pool, a gymnasium, a jogging track, parks and open spaces, play areas, squash courts and swimming pools.
Additional information
  • The building is named after a small town on the Greek island of Santorini which is famous for its blue and white domed houses. This colour theme inspired Oia Residence's blue and white architectural design.

  • 81 of the two-bedroom apartments have a maid’s room as well.

  • The three- and four-bedroom duplexes have private gardens and terraces providing direct access to the swimming pools.

  • Architect'snotes: In order to create a distinct architectural vision for the project, AK Design took precedence from the historic Greek Islands in the Mediterranean Sea. The shaping and topography of the project site which demanded a rambling building and which provides an inherent intimacy and sense of community. The scale for this residential scheme can be seen as directly analogous to many of Dubai's new urban fringe lifestyle developments. The master plan aims to address the local environment in terms of orientation and material selections while creating the essence of community through a series of external squares.

  • Architect's notes: The entire super structure has been completed as well as the installation of MEP services and multiple facades. The community squares are pivotal focal points in this project and work on the related swimming pools and landscaping areas have been completed. Amid all of these site activities, a fully furnished duplex show apartment was previously constructed for marketing purposes. Best practice site procedures for this G+5 project have been implemented to ensure minimum disruption for local residents.

  • The building was developed at the cost of AED450 million.
