Mirdiff Hills, Dubai Investments' delayed residential project in Dubai, is confirmed to begin construction soon.

Most of the preparation works for the first phase, containing 1,054 of the 1,400 homes planned, has already been completed, with basements excavated and main contractor Engineering Contracting Company already mobilised on site, according to The National.

Khalid Bin Kalban, chief executive, Dubai Investments said: “We believe that this is the right time to bring forward this project.”

He said that the government plans to build roads around the new development with regards to the connectivity of the site to major highways.

The area will also be complemented by several attractions including cycling tracks, the Al Thuraya Astronomy Centre and the Dubai Crocodile Park, Kalban said.

"All of that the government has now confirmed is happening around this site," he added.

Last week, an initial 50 units went on sale at the project site, with a possible 100 to be built during the first phase launch to meet demand.

The contract to build the homes is due for completion by the end of 2018.

Built on a freehold plot, the project will include one-, two- and three-bed apartments on a 36ha site in Mirdif close to Mushrif Park.

Other features include a 230-bed hospital, a hotel and 52 retail outlets.
