Dubai, 26 July 2021: Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, has overhauled the designs of its upcoming homes to appeal to customers’ post-pandemic needs.  

Amid the substantial changes in preferences due to the implications of the pandemic on residential developments, Azizi Developments has redefined several of its soon-to-be launched designs. For instance, the importance of foyers has risen, as they act as separators between the outdoors and indoors, allowing one’s home to be kept sanitary, where residents can, for example, take off their shoes and wash their hands. Azizi is now also integrating more non-porous materials that are easier to clean and thereby reduce the likelihood of contamination.

Workspace at home is also becoming increasingly important for adults to work from home and children to pursue e-learning. Azizi’s units are designed with larger, dedicated, and secluded work areas with more suitable furniture, for these purposes.Moreover, additional amendments to balcony sizes and outdoor spaces were made, with larger such spaces now being higher in demand. The developer has added renowned designers to its team to find new ways of enhancing its project layouts and aesthetics, such as by exploring role of colours in promoting serenity within its homes, with neutral and demure mid-tones being proven to bring harmony and joy to those residing there.

Mr Mohamed Ragheb Hussein, Chief Development Officer at Azizi Developments, said: “Even post-pandemic, we will see these trends continue. Home office is becoming increasingly prevalent, and families feel safer spending more time in their own space. Homes have turned into offices, playgrounds, cinemas, restaurants and more – a trend that is here to last. It is of the utmost importance for us to design solutions that meet these needs and keep our valued customers safe and comfortable.”

“Along with the facilities management team and owners’ associations, we have also enhanced the landscaping areas by adding more trees, seasonal flowers and children-friendly play areas, while also upgrading the fitness centres. Every element, be it equipment, flooring, walls or lighting, has been designed with special attention to detail to enhance our tenants’ lifestyles. Sanitisation is kept at the forefront of all this – but meeting the market’s needs and wants doesn’t end there – we will continue to find further ways of enhancing our designs in light of the pandemic’s aftereffects”.

Recently, Azizi Developments has announced the addition of a 2.7-km crystal lagoon covering an area of over 130,026 square metres that will stretch across the entirety of the Riviera community. With stunning blue flooring, filled with more than 51.5 million gallons of crystal-clear, desalinated, clean water that residents can swim in, and easily accessible via its lagoon walk — which will also feature a vast variety of artisan eateries and boutiques — Azizi’s lagoon will be a bustling space where residents can enjoy strolls along the beach-like shores, sunbathe and cool off right at their doorstep.  

A stylish waterfront-lifestyle destination located in the heart of MBR City, Riviera 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. 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 that is both residential and commercial, with an abundance of retail space.

Riviera features three districts: an extensive retail boulevard, the lagoon walk with artisan eateries and boutiques, and Les Jardins — a vast, lush-green social space. 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.
