Dubai: Residents of Midtown cherish their living experience, and the community’s commitment to safety and security is a major source of satisfaction. Situated in the vibrant Dubai Production City, Midtown has become a cherished home for thousands since its launch in 2015.
Expressing their contentment, residents emphasize the community’s strong points, especially the safety measures, security features, and overall convenience.
As the flagship community developed by Deyaar, Midtown has successfully delivered four project phases, with the recent addition of Jannat, and aims to welcome even more residents. The uniqueness of Midtown is underscored by its exceptional location, and a well-thought out development, with generous greenery and community areas.
Positioned as a distinctive residential enclave, it is poised to appeal to a cosmopolitan community. Residents of Midtown are treated to breathtaking vistas of both the iconic Dubai skyline and the scenic beauty of the Jumeirah Golf Estates.
Sri Lankan family living in a two-bedroom apartment plus maid room said the safety and security aspect of living at Midtown is what makes them stay here. “We can safely send our children out and don’t have to worry,” said Aruna Ratnaweera Udawattage Don.
“The community also has all the facilities here. The podium area is massive where there are many play courts and activities. There is a sprawling area for barbeque as well to host parties. The location is personally a great advantage for me as my children go to a school at Global Village which is just 10 minutes far. For my wife and me as well the work is not too far way. We don’t get stuck in traffic every day for sure,” said Aruna, who works as a systems manager for a private company in Dubai.
His wife Namali who works as a teacher and their children Aken and Viyara said they love it here in Midtown.
Namali added: “The security and staff managing the community are very helpful.”
Aruna said his landlord hiked up the rent this year, but the family does not want to move. “We know that rents have gone up. Asking rent for an apartment with our size is way higher so we just renewed our unit.”
French expat Clotilde Vallee could not agree more. “We have been living here nearly two years and love the way the community comes together and helps each other here. My children Simone and Josephine have found friends and love to go to the play area to meet them.”
Clotilde and her husband Hossein Danesh paid a rent of Dh62,000 initially, but in their latest renewal the landlord pushed it up by Dh4,000. “We still think it is a good deal for the apartment size, location and the amenities in offer.”
Midtown stands out as a lively community offering diverse amenities, including swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, and a padel court.
Hamdan Al Kaitoob, Vice President of Property & Community Management at Deyaar Development, emphasizes their commitment to enhancing the residents’ experience by providing the best the community has to offer.
Spacious, landscaped communityRajesh Rennel Felix is one happy home-owner at Midtown. “I chose to live in Midtown, precisely for the fact that there is a lot of clean air and space around in the community. The community vibe is amazing and it is great to see a mixed bag of nationalities living here. The landscape in this place is just awesome and the community is very pet friendly which touches my heart.”
Felix bought the property for around Dh650,000 back in 2020 and now it is priced more than Dh800,000. “I am planning to buy another unit, we’re is still in negotiations,” said Felix who pays Dh2,500 every quarter for his one-bedroom apartment.
Kaitoob of Deyaar said the developer will be constructing a mosque in the community which should be completed by end of the year. “What we are trying to do as a developer is to provide value to our customers. It is not just about offering facilities, retail strips that will accommodate their day to day needs. What we are doing is give them a sense of belonging – a place where they can feel like it is a home rather than just a place to go and live every day.”
