We take sustainability, innovation, customer centricity and our construction-driven approach very serious and have, especially recently, dedicated a lot of resources to excelling in these realms.  Our offerings are unlike those of the competition, granting investors transparent and convenient purchase – and after-sale – processes for outstanding, lifestyle-enhancing and technology-driven properties that are built to last with solid, growth-inclined returns. With 2020 having had its fair share of challenges for the world, we are working to contribute the regional sector’s quick recovery, with our growth, both in terms of sales and construction, having surpassed pre-pandemic levels already.” 

Part of Azizi Developments’ award-winning portfolio, Riviera is a stylish waterfront-lifestyle destination located in the heart of MBR City that is planned to comprise 71 mid-rise buildings with approximately 16,000 residences upon its completion, conveniently located in the midst of all the business, leisure and retail hubs of the city. 

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 destination that is both residential and commercial, with an abundance of retail space. Riviera features three districts: an extensive retail boulevard, a lagoon walk with artisan eateries and boutiques, and Les Jardins — a vast, lush-green social space. 

In June this year, Azizi Developments announced the addition of a 2.7-kilometre-long crystal lagoon to Riviera, covering an area of over 130,026 square metres that will stretch across the entirety of the community. With stunning blue flooring, filled with more than 51.5 million gallons 

of crystal-clear, desalinated and clean water that residents can swim in, and easily accessible via its lagoon walk — which will also feature a vast variety of artisan eateries and boutiques — Azizi’s lagoon will be a bustling space where residents can enjoy strolls along the beach-like shores, sunbathe and cool off.

With its strategic location near the upcoming Meydan One Mall and the Meydan Racecourse — home of the Dubai World Cup — as well as Dubai’s most noteworthy points of interest, Riviera represents one of Azizi Developments’ most coveted projects.
