MZ Architects wins design contract for 11 buildings at $8bn Azizi Venice

DUBAI, April 18, 2024

Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, has announced its partnership with homegrown firm MZ Architects for the concept design of 11 buildings within its AED30-billion ($8.2 billion) mixed-use development, Azizi Venice, located in the Dubai South.
Once completed, Azizi Venice will boast more than 30,000 residential units across 100 apartment complexes, and over 400 luxury villas and mansions. 
For the project, Azizi said it is taking on the role of master developer, in charge of constructing the buildings, roads, and all the infrastructure.
At the heart of Azizi Venice lies its luxurious pedestrian-friendly boulevard, which will be open-air in the winter and glass-covered in the summer to ensure a temperature-controlled space with year-round activity and visitors, stated the developer. 
Lined with three-storey buildings, it is being planned to host the world’s top retailers and brands, nightlife, and entertainment options, as well as eateries that represent a vast number of countries from across the world, it added.
On the contract award, CEO Farhad Azizi said: "We are thrilled to be partnering with the renowned MZ Architects for Azizi Venice. We look forward to their concept designs, which we are confident will elevate the aesthetics of our Venice projects to new heights, creating spaces that inspire and showcase our commitment to excellence."
A prime tourist attraction and high-end local hotspot, Azizi Venice is planned to welcome over 30,000 visitors on a daily basis. The opulent community will have its very own two Azizi-owned and operated five-star hotels at the entrances of the community, as well as one boutique hotel located on an island in the middle of the lagoon, he stated. 
Azizi Boulevard will represent a new and unique point of interest on Dubai’s map of outstanding sights.
Another major attraction to be developed within Azizi Venice is Azizi Opera, said Azizi. 
Located at the heart of the boulevard and built to the highest, most contemporary standards in design and architecture, Azizi Opera will become one of the most notable venues for cultural and community events in Dubai, he added. 
Founded in 2002 by visionary architect Marwan Zgheib, MZ Architects stands as a beacon of innovation and design excellence in the global architectural landscape, said the company in a statement. 
Specialising in a diverse array of projects ranging from residential marvels to iconic cultural landmarks, MZ Architects has earned widespread acclaim for its ability to infuse every creation with a distinctive sense of timelessness and sophistication, it added. 
Meanwhile in another development, Azizi said the construction on the fourth phase of its ambitious project, Riviera, is in full swing with nearly 75% of the work already completed and on track for Q3 completion.
A French Mediterranean-inspired waterfront community, Riviera is strategically located in the Mohammed Bin Rashid City in Dubai.
Part of phase four is Azizi Azure, which is now 71% constructed, with its structure at 100%, blockwork and internal plaster at 98% and 95%, and HVAC, MEP, and overall finishes at 85%, 77%, and 50%, respectively. 
Work on the other buildings are also progressing rapidly, with construction completion varying between 69% and 80%, it stated.
"We are thrilled to share the remarkable progress achieved in the fourth phase of our mega-project. With each step forward, we reinforce and manifest our promise of delivering excellence across every facet of world class project," remarked Azizi. 
"Surpassing the impressive completion milestone of 73% underscores our relentless pursuit of quality and timely delivery. We eagerly anticipate welcoming our valued investors and future residents, inviting them to experience firsthand the unmatched lifestyle offered by Riviera," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
