Dubai Hills is a large, master-planned community located in Mohammad bin Rashid City. The land is owned by Meraas and the individual developments taking place are managed by Emaar Properties. Most observers compare Dubai Hills to Emaar's first major master-planned development, Emirates Living - which contains several major projects including Meadows, Springs, Emirates Hills, The Lakes, Greens and The Views.
Because of its vast land size, Dubai Hills will develop and mature over a period of time. However, as of October 2016, most of the community's villa/townhouse/residential plots/and luxury mansions have been launched and for the most part, sold out from the developer. Most future launches will focus on the low-rise apartment segment to be built in the part of the community with frontage along Al Khail Road.
Here are some major stats regarding Dubai Hills:
- An 11 million square meter development
- Will eventually have over 2,000 villas and thousands of apartments
- 18 hole golf-course within the development
- 14 tennis courts
- 4 schools
- Many kilometers of natural trails
- 2 hotels & resorts
- Rail & metro-link connectivity
- Dubai Hills Mall (which according to sources in Emaar will be the size of Mall of the Emirates)
Projects launched in Dubai Hills to date
The below map shows the current projects launched in Dubai Hills as of Oct 2016:
Emaar have launched two phases of Sidra - which is a modern version of Emaar's Meadows and Lakes development. These enclaves consist of 3, 4 and 5 bedroom villas.
In May and October of 2015, Emaar launched Maple 1 & 2 which are two townhouse enclaves consisting of 3, 4 & 5 bedroom townhouses. Maple is similar in a way to Emaar's Springs community; however, these units will of course have a better standard of finish and different types of floor-plans.
Emaar have launched three apartment projects in Dubai Hills called Mulberry at Park Heights, Acacia at Park Heights and Park Point. All these projects consist of low-rise residential buildings with 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units.
There are two projects within Dubai Hills where a buyer can purchase residential land for development: Fairways Phase 1 & 2 and Parkways.
These two enclaves consists of plots with sizes between 11 - 13,000 sq. ft. and an FAR of 75%. Owners will have two years from the date of purchase to commence and complete construction or face penalty charges from Emaar.
Ultra-Luxury Shell & Core Villas
There are a total of about 150 ultra-luxury shell & core villas that were launched in 2013 in two enclaves called Hills Grove and Hills Views. These units have plot sizes ranging from 25 - 30,000 sq. ft. and are delivered shell & core by Emaar; the owners would then take over the villa and customize it internally according to their desires.
