Developing the first residential offering at Dubai Design District (d3) naturally aligns with our vision to design spaces in places for people to experience and love life, as we introduce, for the first time ever, the concept of creative living for a community. With Design Quarter at d3, we continue to fulfill our commitment to create and consistently deliver world-class residential real estate projects and master developments that strengthen Dubai’s position as the global real estate investment destination of choice,” says Khalid Al Malik, CEO of Dubai Holding Real Estate.
The successful sales launch event that took place this weekend at d3, saw tremendous response from potential buyers and the community, a testament to Meraas’ ever-growing demand for its world-class projects. Aligning with Dubai’s 2040 Urban Master Plan, residents are surrounded by best-in-class amenities including a double-level infinity pool, gym, gardens connected with jogging tracks, tennis courts, and basketball courts, all encouraging an active way of life. Strategically located, the community is minutes away from key landmarks such as Downtown Dubai, Business Bay, and DIFC as well as all major highways surrounding d3.
Meraas will introduce the first phase of Design Quarter at d3 with 558 units across three Towers with two podiums from G+10 up to G+43. Construction is set to begin this year and is expected to be completed in May 2027.
