Construction progress has been made at the Sobha Hartland megaproject in Dubai's MBR City.

The 1km² Sobha Hartland project in Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City, Dubai, is rapidly progressing as numerous homes are completed within the scheme, and another phase of infrastructural work nears completion.

Sobha Hartland is being developed by Sobha Group, which founder PNC Menon told Construction Week is also planning to build a 60-storey skyscraper in Dubai.

Comprising 5,000 apartments and 353 villas, parts of Sobha Hartland – 30% of which is made up of open green spaces – are currently at various stages of development.

The project will cost $2.5bn (AED9.1bn) to build and will be worth up to $4bn (AED14.6bn), which includes sales, overall. 

Several phases of Sobha Hartland have been completed, including Phase 1 of Greens, a 161-unit development comprising seven shops and sub-developer Gemini’s 134-unit Splendour residential building.

A main substation within Sobha Hartland has also been completed and energised, and a primary telecommunications room is complete and commissioned, as are two international schools for the community.

Overall infrastructure work is up to 83% complete, and activities to be carried out in the next three to six months include construction and landscaping. Phase 1 of the luxury private villa collection will also be handed over during this period. 

There are approximately 3,000 workers at Sobha Hartland's site, with Sobha overseeing all aspects of the project. Main infrastructure works have been carried out by Sobha Hartland Contracting’s infrastructure division, and PNC Architects, another in-house firm, acted as the masterplan consultant alongside infrastructure consultant, WSP.

Sobha respectively deployed sub-contractors Trafquest, Poyry, and Shanklin and Cox for a transportation impact study, substation consultancy, and landscaping advisory.

Current developments within Sobha Hartland’s masterplan are expected to be completed by 2024, and infrastructure for the entire project will be completed by the end of 2019.
