“The work on the Dar Essalam Gardens Resort project is well advanced after its launch in 2020 by the tourism holding company DIFAF, a subsidiary of the Marita group, assures the director of marketing and communications who says that the city will be fully operational in 2024. ”
Since the beginning of the 2000s, numerous real estate programs aimed at the wealthy classes have been developed in all cities of the Kingdom but according to the promoters of this project, it will be the first time that a project, of very high standard, will allow wealthy clients to live alongside foreign diplomats who will be grouped together in an ultra-modern city.
“A multi-functional Resort concept still non-existent in Morocco”
Asked by Medias24, the director in charge of marketing and communication tells us that the work on this multifunctional smart city, combining residential (individual and diplomatic) and tourist accommodation, has progressed well since the groundbreaking in July 2020. .
According to the director, the future city, located in the very chic Souissi district, will be made up of intelligent buildings all equipped with the latest generation technologies which will give it a green energy smart-city label.
Diplomatic city, what is it?
Asked what the real innovation of this project will be, our interlocutor declares that it will lie in the construction of the first smart diplomatic city in Morocco but also on the continent.
“This diplomatic city will be above all a private place designed and designed for the diplomatic corps accredited in Rabat which offers embassies very advantageous solutions to become owners at very attractive rates.
Of the thirty diplomatic villas planned, the first phase is almost completed pending the launch of work on the next phases.
“The city will also offer value-added services like a diplomatic club.
“Indeed, this place for meetings and professional exchanges between diplomats based in Rabat will be able to host embassy events such as national holiday celebrations…
“In addition, a guest villa will also be designed to receive foreign guests and diplomats visiting Rabat for short stays as well as guests of the diplomatic city.
“It will offer all the necessary comfort through a smart villa equipped with cutting-edge Smart technology, a gym and professional meeting places
Security provided by the State and private companies
“Knowing that the diplomatic component will constitute the heart of the real estate project and that its credibility will closely depend on its security conditions, both internal and external, all its access points will be secured thanks to the presence of public order forces and agents of companies specializing in private security.
“Apart from this diplomatic capital, the Resort will have a residential part divided between 90 serviced plots of land, 132 signature villas, a high-standard SPA and finally a large luxury hotel, all of which will be functional and habitable by beginning of 2024, i.e. a work duration of 4 years.
90 lots of land being marketed
“Clients wishing to acquire a titled lot of serviced land, with panoramic views of the valley and the lake, will be able to choose an area of 1,500 to 3,000 square meters before building their villa, within the framework of specifications detailed allowing for overall architectural harmonization,” specifies Boutaleb, adding that the marketing of the land which began in 2020 is on track.
132 smart villas will be delivered by the end of 2023
For those who prefer to avoid a construction site, the developers of the tourism holding company DIFAF are offering 132 smart villas which will all be delivered, turnkey, at the end of 2023.
Signed by the Italian designer Bertoni in collaboration with American architects, these luxury villas will be automated thanks to the partnership with Georgia Tech, an Atlanta university specializing in mixed research known worldwide for its engineering and computer science programs.
With two swimming pools, one of which is heated indoors, they will have a floor area of 700 m² and 1000 m² of built area which will extend over 3 levels with an elevator and garden.
