The Downtown Jebel Ali master development in Dubai has reached more new milestones with Zone 2 infrastructure now complete and the first substation handed over to Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), according to developer Limitless.

It said in a statement that all underground utilities are now complete at Zone 2 of the 200 hectare mixed-use development, while 90 percent of work is finished at Zone 4 and 70 percent in Zone 3.

Road construction is also complete at Zone 2, and underway at Zones 3 and 4, the company said, adding that all infrastructure work at Downtown Jebel Ali is on track for completion in 2018.

Meanwhile, a 132kv substation was completed and handed over to DEWA. News of these major milestones come just days after Limitless announced an early repayment of AED412.4 million to banks and trade creditors.

Ali Rashid Lootah, chairman of Limitless, said: “Downtown Jebel Ali has seen major progress in the last few months, and these new milestones reinforce our commitment to the investors who share our vision for our flagship master community. 2017 has been a highly successful year for Limitless, and we look forward to even greater achievements in 2018 and beyond.”

Downtown Jebel Ali has more than 300 third party plots that will contain a mixture of apartment blocks, hotels, offices and retail developments. Many are already operational or under construction.
