Dubai Properties says 'ahead of schedule' on Culture Village project

Real estate developer Dubai Properties (DP) has announced that it is "ahead of schedule" in the early stages of construction of Manazel AlKhor which forms part of its Culture Village project.

The developer said in a statement that it has been working closely with its consultants WSP and engineering contractors, Sun Engineering to complete the majority of the substructure phase.

Manazel AlKhor will join a number of other luxury residential and hospitality projects under construction by third party developers in Culture Village, including the luxurious six-star Palazzo Versace Hotel and D1 Residential Tower.

Commenting on the progress, Mohammed Al Habbai, chief officer of urban planning and infrastructure at DPG, said: "Manazel AlKhor will be a unique luxury development. We are ahead of schedule according to the approved dates, and are confident we will continue making headway at this current rate.

"Manazel AlKhor has received strong interest from buyers so far and we look forward to delivering this world-class development to them."

Located at Culture Village on the banks of Dubai Creek, Manazel AlKhor has a traditional Emirati theme, and features local architecture, with shared amenities including a gym, pool.

Culture Village will be the city's first creek-side development with residential, commercial, retail, entertainment and cultural components.
