Encompassing the overall size of 16 football pitches (750 acres), Dubai’s developing Town Square development will contain numerous communal, hotel and leisure facilities, creating new communities amongst a thriving new metropolis.

With over 2000 townhouses and 18,000 apartments within the construction plans, 5,000 homes are set to be completed by 2017, at which most have sold. However, interest is still high, at which over 5,000 workers are undertaking vital construction and infrastructure works.

Dubai property developer Nshama is behind the new development, at which Fred Durie, CEO of Nshama, said “We are committed to delivering the homes as per schedule, in approximately a year from now. We are working with only the best-in-class contractors and consultants, who have accelerated their workflow using the latest technologies to ensure on-time delivery.”

Strong transport links will also be embedded within easy distance to built properties, such as the metro and Etihad rail, alongside modern amenities within every property, such as wide balconies, swimming pools and community clubs and centres, ideal for families.

Retail facilities have also been incorporated, with a new centre incorporating over 600 new stores.

Key contractors on the project consist of Beaver Gulf, Kier Dubai, Al Naboodah Contracting, Shapoorji Pallonji, Binladin Contracting Group. Over AED 3 billiion has been awarded for a multitude of projects.

Durie commented: “Across all aspects of the development, we have set clear construction milestones. Town Square will be a proud addition to the residential portfolio of Dubai, made distinctive for its affordability and fascinating lifestyle attractions.”
