UAE-based Azizi Developments has announced that foundation works on phases 1 and 2 of its flagship project in Meydan One, which is set to be completed in early 2019, are almost completed.
The company said the Azizi Riviera mega project continues to develop at rapid pace – with the foundations 85 percent complete and basement works have commenced.
The construction is expected to rise above ground soon, it added in a statement.
Azizi Riviera includes 69 mid-rise buildings, comprising 16,000 units of studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments, and two hotels.
Mirwais Azizi, chairman of Azizi Group, said: “We are pleased to announce that the basement works for one of our most ambitious projects is underway and the first two phases of the development will soon be above ground level. The project is developing rapidly, as we had planned, and we are aiming to deliver Azizi Riviera ahead of schedule.”
He added: “Our goal is to deliver world-class housing to meet the growing demand in emerging neighbourhoods of Dubai – and Azizi Riviera is a game-changer in this regard. We have had tremendous response from off-plan buyers.”
A key feature of the Azizi Riviera development is an integrated retail district plus long paved pedestrian paths and water transport, yachting facilities and a proposed marina.
