Azizi Developments Boosts Riviera Construction With 6,000 Workers
Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, has added a total of 6,000 workers to its existing workforce to expedite the process of construction at its four-phased residential megaproject, Riviera in MBR City. The move comes in line with Azizi Developments marking 2019 as its ‘Year of Construction’, dedicating it to the swift construction of its ongoing projects.
Mohamed Ragheb, Executive Director - Engineering Division at Azizi Developments, said: “The addition of this sizable workforce to Riviera helps us ensure timely delivery, as well as the world-class standards of quality and aesthetics that we pride ourselves with. This community has an allure unlike any other, which is reflected in it being one of our most well-received projects with an outstanding investor response.”
Riviera is the company’s flagship community project in the heart of MBR City, Dubai, comprising more than 16,000 residences spread across 71 mid-rise buildings that overlook an extensive retail boulevard, a canal walk with artisan eateries and boutiques, and Les Jardins — a lush-green social space.
With its strategic location near the upcoming Meydan One Mall and the Meydan Racecourse — home of the Dubai World Cup — as well as major business, leisure and retail hubs, Riviera is one of Azizi Developments’ most sought-after projects. Designed to introduce the French-Mediterranean lifestyle to Dubai, which is not merely about architectural art, but also about a certain 'joie de vivre' — a celebration of life, an exultation of spirit, Riviera represents a new landmark.
The completion of the project’s first phase currently stands at 54 per cent, while phase 2 and phase 3 are at 36 and 22 per cent respectively. So far, 198 slabs have been casted, 740,855 tons of concrete have been poured, and 31 cranes have been erected.
Although the foundation stones of the present-day Azizi Group were laid in 1989, it was in 2007 when the towering presence of Azizi Developments first began to take shape. Mirwais Azizi was driven to design homes and communities inspired by modern urban living. But at the heart, it was about giving back to a city that had offered him and his family a place of peace and security. He set a vision for the future without losing sight of the past, ensuring he stays within client budgets, but goes beyond the norm to create the best possible living experience for people. Today, Azizi Developments reflects the aspirations of a wide spectrum of lifestyle seekers. This means a permanent dedication to understanding and meeting clients' aspirations, developing distinctive homes that set the standard in contemporary building design and offering an unparalleled level of customer service. It's about unlocking a new lifestyle for the curious and ambitious, setting the ideal platform to live, work and play – and building communities that bring people closer.
