Azizi Developments expects to complete phases 1 and 2 of its flagship project in Dubai in the first quarter of 2019 and phases 3 and 4 in the third quarter of that year.
Construction of Azizi Riviera in Meydan is advancing rapidly with basement works for the first two phases progressing and land excavation underway for phase 3, the developer said in a statement.
Azizi Riviera will have a total of 69 mid-rise buildings, comprising 16,000 units of studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments.
A key feature of the development is an integrated retail district that will be home to high street brands, leisure and entertainment options.
The overall development, on the banks of the Dubai Canal, will also offer access to long paved pedestrian paths and water transport, yachting facilities and a proposed marina, among other attractions.
