Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, has announced the addition of a wide array of new facilities at Riviera, Dubai’s new French Mediterranean-inspired landmark destination, including a 3.2-km running and cycling track winding through the entire community, more than 71 barbecue areas, numerous basketball and tennis courts, playgrounds, as well as plenty of parks and greenery throughout. 
Just last month, Azizi had announced the addition of a 2.7-km-long crystal lagoon covering an area of over 130,026 sq m that will stretch across the entirety of the Riviera community. 
With stunning blue flooring, filled with more than 51.5 million gallons of crystal-clear, desalinated and clean water that residents can swim in, and easily accessible via its lagoon walk — which will also feature a vast variety of artisan eateries and boutiques — Azizi’s lagoon will be a bustling space where residents can enjoy strolls along the beach-like shores, sunbathe and cool off. 
Chief Development Officer Mohamed Ragheb Hussein said: "Riviera is our flagship community – it is our pride and joy, and our biggest yet in Dubai. Thus, with the delivery of homes already beginning in a few months’ time, we want to make sure that this development lives up to – and surpasses - all our stakeholder expectations."
"We are not here to just construct mere buildings – we are in this to enrich lifestyles for generations to come – a mission that we continuously strive for in the development of Riviera," he noted. 
"This is truly an exciting surprise announcement for our customers, who were previously unaware that the community would feature such value-adding amenities, and who won’t be charged for them," said Hussein. 
"We are now using Riviera’s public space to its fullest extent by giving it a purpose for recreational and leisurely activities, effectively encouraging residents’ physical and mental wellbeing and fostering a true sense of belonging. In turn, investor ROIs are enhanced, customers’ expectations are surpassed, and their satisfaction reaches new heights," he added.
Riviera, a stylish waterfront-lifestyle destination located in the heart of MBR City, is planned to comprise 71 mid-rise buildings with approximately 16,000 residences upon its completion that are conveniently located in the midst of all the business, leisure and retail hubs of the city.-TradeArabia News Service
