PHUKET 24th February 2009 – Bryan Lunt, founder and Chairman of the Absolute Group, has announced an exciting collaboration between Absolute Developments and Yoo, the international design and branding company co-founded by John Hitchcox and Philippe Starck. DCM Solutions are delighted to be working on the construction of their first yooPhuket project.

yooPhuket is an exciting collection of 256 apartments, including a 55m long infinity pool and amenities, featuring interior designs and layouts designed by Yoo.   Nestled on the edge of a serene lake and surrounded by 3 world class Golf Courses on one of the most sought after island destinations in Asia, yooPhuket will be a high-end mixed-use development offering outright freehold foreign ownership. And to ensure the dream of a luxury Thai holiday home becomes a reality, a selection of these properties will be released through Absolute’s acclaimed quarter-share co-ownership scheme – a first for the Yoo group.

The project is anticipated to take 2 years to build and off-plan buyers can expect to see at least a 30% gain in the value of their property by the time the development is complete.
Bryan Lunt said “We wanted to pull together a top team to work on our yooPhuket development and are thrilled to have DCM on board as Master Contractors.  Their work on Starck’s Cape Yamu project was outstanding, yooPhuket will certainly be in the best hands!”

yooPhuket is expected to launch this Spring and as an example, prices for outright freehold on a 55 sq m one bedroom apartment start from £80,000 (c. €90,000) and from £109,000 (c. €121,000) for a 75 sq m two bedroom apartment. Prices for penthouses start from £199,000 (c. €222,000). Quarter-share co-ownership fully furnished apartments start from as little as £25,540 (c. €28,500) for a 33 sq m studio unit in period Q4 September, October and November forever.
