A Dubai developer is building a new $5.4bn residential community, complete with 2km air-conditioned boulevard, cinemas, nightlife and a swimmable crystal lagoon.
Azizi Developments has signed with KEO International Consultants to create a masterplan for a 15m sq ft plot of land, with 24m sq ft of gross floor area, in the rapidly growing Dubai South.
Azizi will be in charge of constructing the buildings, roads and all infrastructure of the AED20bn ($5.4bn) mixed-use development.

When completed it will feature luxury villas, residences, commercial and entertainment space. Under the plans the new Azizi development will include a 2km-long air-conditioned pedestrian walkway.
The glass-covered boulevard will comprise shopping areas, commercial space, dining, cinemas, nightlife and underground parking says the developer.
Hoping to attract 100,000 visitors from outside the community every day it will be a major tourist attraction in the emirate.
Residences and five-star hotels in the community will have access to a large swimmable crystal lagoon wand 3km of beach-like shores and distinctive water features and parks.
Schools, a hospital and cycling and jogging tracks are also included in the development’s masterplan.
The project will be located in Dubai South’s prestigious Golf District.

“We now embark on this new, exciting master development journey, which is an integral part of the next era of our growth trajectory and that of Dubai, with the renowned KEO consultants by our side.”
