Sustainable Villas

The sustainable villas stem from an ENL Property initiative, in line with its values and sustainability commitment. To achieve this vision, ENL Property ran a contest inviting renowned Mauritian architects to pitch their ideas, with the company’s criteria in mind.

After careful consideration, only two submissions were selected, and are now presented to you.

A safe off-plan investment through the VEFA contract

Apartments and villas at Les Promenades d’Helvétia are sold off-plan through a “Vente en l’Etat Futur d’Achèvement” (VEFA) contract, which implies that the seller transfers ownership rights of the land and construction in progress to the buyer. The price of the residence is payable in instalments as the work progresses.

In line with VEFA requirements, the development is secured by a Performance Bond (Garantie Financière d’Achèvement – GFA) from a trusted banking institution. The GFA guarantees delivery of the property according to the terms of the contract. In case the developer fails to complete the project, the banks will act as guarantors for delivery of the development.

Helvétia : an integrated precinct in the heart of Moka Smart City

The residential neighbourhood of Helvétia has been a hot spot of Moka since 2010. It epitomises an easy living, offering an enviable village lifestyle in the heart of a bustling city. Residents have a comprehensive array of facilities and services, including schools, a sports and wellness institute, a commercial centre with a supermarket, restaurants and shops as well as a linear park, La Promenade, on their doorstep.

The Smart City Scheme in Mauritius

The Government of Mauritius introduced the Smart City Scheme in 2015 to promote investment in intelligent, innovative and sustainable urban developments across the country. Moka was issued with a Smart City Certificate by the Economic Development Board in 2017 and is now open to foreigners for freehold ownership.

The Smart City Scheme is a new investment option aimed at enhancing the national property landscape. It is hinged on the pillars of innovation, sustainability, efficiency and quality of life.

The scheme presents various advantages for foreign buyers, including:

• The possibility to resell the property
• A residence permit with a minimum purchase price of USD 350,000
• ICT-enabled urban services for residents, with smart sensors across the city
• A reduced environmental footprint
• Constantly improving mobility solutions
• High-quality infrastructure
