Dubai Hills Estate Overview

Dubai Hills Estate is the first phase of Mohammed Bin Rashid City and is billed as a ‘city within the city’ project.

A joint venture between Emaar and Meraas Holding, Dubai Hills Estate is a mixed-use development with a series of unique neighbourhoods set around an 18-hole championship golf course.

The development spans over 11 million square metres much of which is reserved for vast stretches of landscaped parks and gardens, winding walkways, and extensive open areas.

Dubai Hills is an exercise in opulence if ever there were one. An exclusive villa community that invites prospective ‘customers’ to choose between different architectural styles from a limited collection of spacious villas, ‘ideal for families and entertaining and so elegantly designed that they define a new lifestyle for residents’.

Once complete, Dubai Hills will contain 4,600 villas and 22,000 flats, a 143,000 sq m ‘lifestyle mall’, 210,000 sq m of retail, 197,000 sq m of offices, two hotels, a tennis academy and 45 km of cycling and jogging tracks.

The development comprises three zones. To the north, fronting Al Khail Road, there will be two malls and a number of mid-rise residential blocks built around a 7km-long boulevard lined with shops and restaurants. There will be a total of 22,000 flats.

Around the golf course there is a low-density housing zone containing 97 villas and a further 300 villas in two communities – the Fairways and Parkways.

The third zone has higher density town houses and villas in two communities, Maple and Sidra. Maple 1 and 2 contain more than 1,300 town houses and Sidra 1 and 2 around 330. Sidra Phase 3 is yet to be launched.

Construction Updates

Several areas of Dubai Hills Estate are largely complete.The first villas, some of the biggest in the middle of the 18-hole golf course, were handed over to buyers in mid-2016. The villas are in the Hills Grove community, popularly known as 'the Street of Dreams'.

Dubai Hills Golf Course opened in November 2018, and the following year many of the residential properties surrounding it were completed for handover including 65 six- to seven-bedroom villas in Fairways Vistas and 61 in Parkway Vistas

Properties around the community park were also completed in 2019, including those in the Maple and Sidra neighbourhoods. Acacia at Park Heights, which comprises two residential buildings, together housing 477 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, was completed in June 2019.

Park Point, housing apartments ranging from one- to three-bedrooms, was topped out in May 2020.

Mulberry at Park Heights, which consists of three low-rise buildings housing a total of 664 one- to three-bedroom apartments, has not yet been built.

Hills Business Park was completed by the end of 2019, and early in 2020 Dubai Hills Mall was handed over to tenants and was set to open by the end of that year.

Road Access

Dubai Hills Estate is situated between Emirates Road and Al Khail Road, so residents will be 15 minutes drive from Downtown Dubai , 20 minutes from Dubai Marina or the international airport, and under two hours from Abu Dhabi.

Public Transport

The pink and purple metro lines will, when built, connect to the new Al Maktoum International Airport at Jebel Ali.
