Infrastructure construction works at MBR city in Dubai, UAE in good progress

Infrastructure construction works at the Mohammed bin Rashid City (MBR) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), home to Azizi’s Riviera are in good progress. The infrastructure developments comprise road sidewalks, drainage, and water systems, backfilling, substantiation, and more.

According to Mohamed Ragheb, Executive Director – Engineering Division at Azizi Developments, the company is excited to see the infrastructure works progressing at such a rapid pace, with Riviera, the company’s flagship master-planned community, visibly coming to life.

“This milestone signifies a turning point: the project is manifestly evolving into a functioning, well-designed, and liveable city comprising vast numbers of homes, retail units, and recreational facilities, instilling a true sense of accomplishment and pride in all of us,” he said.

Recently, Property Monitor reported that in 2019, MBR City experienced the highest sales volume of residential apartments in Dubai, with 3,361 units sold, surpassing all other major areas and making it the most sought-after residential destination in the city.


Riviera, a stylish waterfront-lifestyle destination located in the heart of MBR City, is planned to comprise 71 mid-rise buildings with approximately 16,000 residences that are conveniently located in the midst of all the business, leisure, and retail hubs of the city.

Designed to introduce the French-Mediterranean lifestyle to Dubai, which is not merely about architectural art but also about a certain ‘joie de Vivre — a celebration of life, an exultation of spirit, Riviera represents a new landmark.

The homes offer spectacular views of the city’s skyline and ensure generous space, spread across three districts: an extensive retail boulevard, a canal walk with artisan eateries and boutiques, and Les Jardins — a lush-green social space.

The first phase of Riviera comprises 3,589 residences across 18 towers, consisting of 2,461 studios, 935 one-bedroom, 111 two-bedroom, and 82 three-bedroom units, most of which are projected to be completed in 2020. Phase 1 has a total built-up area of 375,541 sq. m and a total gross floor area of 180,854 sqm.

Azizi to invest over US $952.8m to develop buildings in Riviera Phase 3 and 4

Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, announced its plans to invest over US $952.8m in the next 2-3 years to develop 14 and 22 buildings in Riviera Phase 3 and 4 respectively, its three Avenue buildings in MBR City, two projects in Dubai Healthcare City, and four projects in Al Furjan.

This announcement comes in light of it having sold over 80% of its current ongoing projects and inventory, and demand is projected to surge, especially in MBR City, DHCC, and Al Furjan – the three most sought-after residential destinations in all of the UAE.

The construction of the Al Furjan and Dubai Healthcare City projects, which will feature around 645 and 973 units respectively, Riviera’s Phase 3, comprising approximately 3,700 units, Phase 4, with around 5,400 units, and the 423 Avenue units, will commence between August and December of this year.

Catalyzing the emirate’s vision and development

According to the CEO of Azizi Developments, Mr. Farhad Azizi, the launches are based on demand, which has been exceptional in MBR City, Dubai Healthcare City, and Al Furjan. The current stock across these up-and-coming locations is nearly sold out, which is why Azizi is now planning further developments accordingly. The new communities will be unique in the lifestyles they grant residents – they are a new type of product, and we will be reaching out to new markets with them.

“The funds will be spread out over several years, with more than 11,000 homes being developed. We are confident that this investment in Dubai, the most promising, forward-thinking, and growth-inclined city in the world, is well placed, and look forward to further catalyzing the emirate’s vision and development,” he added.

For the construction of the 45 buildings, Azizi will minimize vertical supplier structures by sourcing materials, such as concrete, steel, and aluminum, locally. It will also continue to build its engineering team and construction methods, making the developer less contractor-dependent and taking efficiency and reliability to new heights.
