“By combining lush landscapes, advanced wellness facilities, and dynamic community spaces, we are creating an environment that goes beyond the typical aspects of luxury living by providing a holistic lifestyle that benefits residents' physical and mental health,” said Mohamed Alabbar, founder of Emaar Properties.

Developers are increasingly focusing on Dubai South and its vicinities after the announcement of the relocation of Dubai International (DXB) to Al Maktoum International Airport over the next 10 years. The airport will be the largest in the world with a capacity to handle 260 million passengers annually upon its completion.

The Dubai-listed Emaar Properties is one of the world’s largest real estate companies with a land bank of over 1.7 billion sqft in the UAE and key international markets.
