By Majorie van Leijen

A metro station on the Purple Line of Dubai Metro will be among the features of the future community Dubai Hills Estate, located in Mohammed Bin Rashid City, according to sales representatives of the project.

At Cityscape last week, a billboard listed, among other amenities, ‘a metro connection to Dubai International Airport’ as one of the selling points of the city of the future.

A joint venture of Meraas Holding and Emaar Properties, Dubai Hills Estate is an urban development located at the junction of Umm Al Suqeim Road and Al Khail Road, in easy access of Sheikh Zayed Road and only a 10-minute drive from Downtown Dubai.

A metro connection will add to the accessibility of the community, believes the developer.

According to several sales representatives at Cityscape, the metro station will be located in the upcoming mall, in the southern corner of the development. More info
