Mirwais Azizi, chairman of Azizi Group, said: “Al Furjan is now being recognized as a highly sought-after residential destination and a prime location for investment, given its strategic location to the Expo2020 site.

“We are proud to offer a high concentration of its residential units with more than 2000 units completed and delivered by Azizi since 2006.

“Al Furjan’s communal vibe encourages a socially-integrated way of life, and the access provided to swimming pools, health centres, retail centres, cafes and restaurants, reinforces Al Furjan’s growing brand position in Dubai.”

Azizi has made similar announcements of earlier than expected project completion dates this year, including the Mina by Azizi development on Dubai's Palm Jumeirah, which is due for a Q3 2018 delivery.

Azizi Aliyah Residences, one of its first major sell out projects in Dubai Healthcare City, will also be delivered ahead of schedule.

Launched in October 2016, Azizi Aliyah Residences, which achieved a 100% record sales in a single day, will be delivered in the second quarter of this year, the developer said last month.

Azizi said it will continue its rapid pace of development in Dubai’s Al Furjan district this year as it readies seven projects for delivery in the first and second quarters of 2018.

A master planned community located between Dubai’s Sheikh Zayed Road and Mohammed bin Rashid Road, Al Furjan will feature homes, retail centres, landscaped gardens, and easy access to public transportation.
