The developer has acquired a highly coveted plot on Sheikh Zayed Road where it will soon launch the UAE’s mega project.

Apart from the launch of second tallest tower in the UAE, the leading developer plans to launch a city comprising residences, villas, townhouses and more.

Moreover, Azizi has signed an agreement with Dubai South, acquiring a prominent 15 million sq. ft. plot with 24 million square feet of GFA for which it will be the master developer.

After ending 2022 on high note, Azizi Developments also plans to deliver around 11,000 units across 45 projects in Dubai in 2023. These projects spread across the first, second and third phases of Riviera, Park Avenue I, II and III in MBR City and Berton in Al Furjan.

Azizi sold more than 6,000 units, amounting to Dhs5.6 billion in 2022. The developer also saw a surge in sales of over 37 percent in H2 2022. It developed over 152 floors across 3.51 million sq. ft of built-up area in the last year.

The private real estate developer completed the first 7 buildings of Riviera, its French Mediterranean-inspired waterfront lifestyle community in MBR City and the 634-residence condominium, Creek Views I in Dubai Healthcare City.

With Riviera selling out as a hot cake, Azizi launched Park Avenue III in MBR City, Rêve, its fourth, most distinguished and luxurious phase of Riviera, and Beach Oasis, two buildings with a total of 712 units nestled around a beach-like swimming pool.

Farhad Azizi, CEO of Azizi Developments, said that record-breaking sales and construction speed in 2022 have been exciting for Azizi Developments.

“2023 looks very promising with nearly 100 percent of phases 1 and 2 of mega project Riviera already being sold out and other two phases making rapid progress, as well as several other projects on course for completion in coming months.
