Town Square, the 750-acre development in Dubai, will hand over the first 2,000 homes to customers in 2017, as construction progress continues to stay on track.
With more than 5,000 workers on site, the infrastructure and related works are progressing rapidly, developer Nshama said in a statement.

About 5,000 residences, as part of different neighbourhoods, are currently being built, and about 2,000 will be handed over by the end of 2017, it added.
The Central Square, which is the size of 16 football fields, is also coming to life. It will feature the Vida Townsquare Dubai hotel and a Reel Cinemas cineplex in addition to a 2.5 million sq ft retail precinct featuring over 600 stores and F&B outlets.

i hope it does not become the new international city type of neighbourhood.
Just a quick question, why would anyone want to live in an apartment in the middle of no where? I thought that's what Villas were for?
