By Parag Deulgaonkar

Dubai Hills Estate, a mega development by Emaar Properties and Meraas Holding within Mohammed bin Rashid City (MBR) City, will house 26,400 residential units and will have its own rail line connecting to the emirate’s two international airports.

1“Work on the golf course has made significant progress and the initial phase of the course is already complete. The first shell-and-core golf villas in the Fairways and Parkways communities are set for delivery later this year,” the developers said in a joint statement.

Construction of townhouses and apartments – Maples, Mulberry and Acacia – are set to commence shortly with the Mulberry apartments being the first to be delivered.

Of the total housing stock, 4,400 will be villas and 22,000 will be apartments.

With cycling tracks and walkways for residents, the development will have connectivity to public modes of transport including a Dubai Metro link – Pink and Purple – that will serve the residents who will have access to three stations.

The Purple Line will be linked to the Etihad Rail main station and there will be a dedicated Dubai Hills rail line that will connect residents and visitors to the two international airports in the city. More info
