Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, is scouting for more German engineers and architectural consulting firms to review its projects across Dubai, with new-hires and appointments to play key roles in ensuring that international quality standards are met and surpassed throughout its development processes in Dubai. Moreover, Azizi is also on the lookout for more German suppliers in an effort to source only top, world-class construction materials and components.
This announcement comes in light of Azizi receiving a noticeably increasing demand from European investors, with sales to nationals from the continent having surged by nearly 40% over the past two quarters.
German national Farhad Azizi, Azizi Developments’ Chief Executive Officer, who personally travels to European countries such as Germany on a regular basis to meet with architects, engineers, consultants and suppliers, commented: “We have instilled a quality-first construction mindset here in the UAE, based on international – and mostly German – best practices, materials and innovations. When my team and I travel to other countries, we bring back knowledge, contacts and supplies that help us elevate our own quality standards, resulting in our projects meeting and even exceeding international standards. The synergy created when various continents’ ways of working converge is truly remarkable – and with the UAE being such an outstandingly international nation, it is very fitting for it to also be the pinnacle of all countries’ development practices uniting, forming a better, more advanced real estate landscape.”
Azizi Developments now plans to advance its efforts in sourcing expertise internationally, with it striving for its developments to become even more innovative, sustainable and adherent to global best practices.
One of its many projects that these efforts are reflected in is Riviera – Azizi’s French Mediterranean-inspired residential and commercial community in one of the most sought-after destinations in Dubai – MBR City. Designed to introduce the French-Mediterranean lifestyle to Dubai, which is not merely about architectural art but also about a certain ‘joie de vivre’ — a celebration of life, an exultation of spirit, Riviera represents a new landmark destination.
Riviera, a stylish waterfront-lifestyle destination, is planned to comprise 71 mid-rise buildings with approximately 16,000 residences upon its completion that are conveniently located in the midst of all the business, leisure and retail hubs of the city. It features three districts: an extensive retail boulevard, the lagoon walk with artisan eateries and boutiques, and Les Jardins — a vast, lush-green social space. Riviera is also host to the world’s second largest lagoon – its very own 2.7km-long body of clean, desalinated water that residents can swim in.
With its strategic location near the upcoming Meydan One Mall and the Meydan Racecourse — home of the Dubai World Cup — as well as Dubai’s most noteworthy points of interest, Riviera represents one of Azizi Developments’ most coveted projects.
