In addition, 1,428 spacious apartments have been completed, including 84 sizable studios, 840 one-bedroom apartments and 504 generous two-bedroom apartments with 1,776 square feet of living space.

The development's close proximity to Mirdiff-Rashidiya Metro Station and Dubai International Airport, as well as Emirates Road and Al Khail Road, further enhance the project's position as an accessible and family-friendly enclave.

Khalid Al Malek, Group CEO of Dubai Properties Group said: "The Mirdiff development is a family oriented community that caters to residents seeking leasehold properties. We are thrilled to offering our customers an all-encompassing development that delivers the benefits of self-sustained communities without the long-term purchase commitments."

Salwan Property Management, a subsidiary of Dubai Properties, will lease and manage the development. Salwan's current operations include residential and commercial units at JBR, Cordoba Villas, Al Khail Gate, Al Waha, Al Razi Residence and Office Park at Dubai Internet City.
