The entire project covers a total built-up area of 8.5 million square feet of hospitality, residential and retail space, and will sit on Sheikh Zayed Road and the newly developed Dubai Water Canal. Al Habtoor City comprises three 5-star Starwood branded hotels and three luxury residential towers.

Damac Properties said yesterday it has brought forward the release of Viridis – four towers in the Akoya Oxygen development that is home to the Trump World Golf Club, Dubai.
