A freehold township in DubaiLand comprising 100 residential complexes, six iconic towers, mixed-use units and four hotels.
Liwan is an area located within DubaiLand, Dubai.
The developer
The project was developed by Mizin Real Estate.

Liwan is a mixed use freehold township in DubaiLand masterplanned by Mizin, a member of Tatweer (a subsidiary of Dubai Holding). The development was launched in September 2006.

Liwan covers 13 million sq ft at the junction of the Emirates Road and Al Ain Road, across from Academic City and Dubai Silicon Oasis. The masterplan shows 100 separate residential complexes, six ‘iconic’ towers for business activities and a variety of mixed-use units. Two hotels are located at each end of the development.

There are six different types of residential buildings ranging in size from seven to 15 storeys on individual plots. Mizin based the masterplan for Liwan (formerly known as Frisco Ridge) on the design of San Francisco, with its mix of residential and commercial units, as well as parks and waterfalls.

Queue Point

In March 2007 Kuwait-based Al Mazaya Holding announced the Dh2 billion Queue Point project comprising a total of 52 plots for multi-purpose buildings, both residential and commercial, of between five and 15 storeys.

The residential buildings are aimed at the ‘mid-income’ sector and have been designed in four different styles with apartments ranging in size from one to three bedrooms.

The one-bedroom apartments are designed to be practical and convenient with large windows to provide lots of natural light and come in several layouts with different areas.

The two-bedroom apartments also come in several layouts of different size and are spacious and ‘equipped to suit the lifestyle of contemporary living’.

The three-bedroom apartments are designed with large living areas and spacious bedrooms to comfortably accommodate the whole family.

Completion of the Queue Point project was intended to be 2009 but was delayed by issues arising from the financial crisis of 2007-8, so the first buildings were not handed over until 2012.

Nowadays the name Queue Point is synonymous with Liwan, since it comprises the vast majority of completed buildings in the area.

A look at the original masterplan published by the developer at the time of the launch of Liwan.

The Liwan masterplan is derived from the urban structure of San Francisco and is divided into four districts - Golden Gate District and Park, The Ridge, Downtown and The Suburb.

The buildings are ‘beaux arts style neo-classical’ apartment or office buildings styled on those in San Francisco, or ‘San Francisco style’ high-rise apartments.

Golden Gate District and Park is a residential district with high-rise residential architecture around a large plaza and lake.

The Ridge takes its cue from hilly San Francisco, with residential buildings centred around a large lake in a valley.

Downtown is a cluster of office space towers with a 40-storey signature pyramidal shaped building.

The Suburb is a residential district with a large central parkland.
