Emaar's Dubai Hills Estate works on schedule
Strategically positioned on Al Khail Road and southeast of Downtown Dubai, the green development features residential, hospitality and retail districts
Construction on the 11 million sqm Dubai Hills Estate, developed by Emaar Properties, is currently on schedule.
The initial phase of the championship golf course is already complete. The course overlooks Burj Khalifa and the Downtown Dubai skyline and will have three distinctive landscapes: wadis, valleys and lakes.
The first shell-and-core golf villas in the Fairways and Parkways communities – an exclusive collection of just a handful of elegant residences with the land plot earlier offered for sale – are set for delivery later this year.
The construction of other townhouses and apartments - Maples, Mulberry and Acacia – will be rolled out shortly with the Mulberry apartments the first to be handed over.
Visitors to Dubai Hills Estate can experience the ‘Sidra’ lifestyle, a collection of premium villas that gained good response from customers during its first phase launch.
Ahmad Al Matrooshi, managing director of Emaar Properties, says: “The residential communities in Dubai Hills Estate are indeed a first of their kind in the city with the focus on green living next to a world-class championship golf course. These are communities that will delight residents with the choice of amenities and the spectacular views they offer. The opportunity for investors to purchase land plots and design villas of their choice is another attraction that will appeal to the connoisseurs.”
One of the largest master-planned communities in the city, Dubai Hills Estate will have a total green area of over 2.2 million sqm that includes the golf course and a central park.
The community will have a centrally located mall and community retail areas including a boutique mall for high-end brands. An international hospital offering various specialities will be another highlight of the development.
For those seeking an office in the heart of a green community, Dubai Hills Estate will offer commercial property. Hotels, schools, tennis and sports centres, and a boulevard of about 7 km will bring leisure, retail and F&B choices. And for nature lovers, there will be 45 km of trekking trails.
Apart from the cycling tracks and walkways, the development aims to promote an environmentally sustainable lifestyle with connectivity to public modes of transport including a Dubai Metro link.
Two metro lines, Pink and Purple, will serve the residents who will have easy access to three stations. The Purple Line will also be linked to the Etihad Rail main station. A dedicated Dubai Hills rail line will connect residents and visitors to the two international airports in the city.
