The developer
The project was developed by Deyaar Development.
Construction began in 2017.
The architect
The architectural consultant was U+A Architects.
The contractor
The main building work was done by Belhasa Six Construct and Gammon & Billimoria and the foundation work was carried out by Middle East Foundations Group.

Midtown by Deyaar is a development project in Dubai Production City (formerly known as International Media Production Zone). Unveiled at the Cityscape real estate exhibition in 2014, the first phase, known as Afnan District, was launched a year later. Construction began in August 2017.

There are several other developments in Dubai called ‘Midtown’ which is why this one bears a rather unwieldy name.

This integrated urban community near Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road comprises six districts containing a total of 24 buildings with a built-up area of almost five million square feet. The accommodation includes studios, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments.

Afnan District
Afnan is the first phase of Midtown and was offered to prospective investors in September 2015. It  contains seven residential buildings ranging in size from seven to 17 floors. The blocks contain 659 apartments (132 studios, 374 one-bed, 143 two-bed and 10 three-bed apartments) ranging in size from 40 to 189sq m and are suitable for middle-income families.

The developer says that ‘the neighbourhood is set to create a green and aesthetically pleasing environment by incorporating 400,000 sq ft of landscaped terrain’.

Afnan District benefits from new infrastructure developments like Dubai Metro connectivity and proximity to City Centre Me’aisem, a multi-utility mall in Production City.

Construction ended in November 2019.

Dania District
Dania is the second phase of Midtown and comprises six buildings housing 579 apartments ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments. Amenities will include open lawns, a basketball court, tennis courts and a swimming pool.

Construction was completed in February 2020.

Noor District
Noor is the third phase of Midtown and was launched in March 2020. It comprises seven buildings containing a total of 593 units, including studios and one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. Prices start from AED 480,000.

Noor is due to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2022.
