Midtown by Deyaar Overview

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 27 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 will contain seven residential buildings ranging in size from seven to 17 floors. The blocks will contain 659 apartments (132 studios, 374 one-bed, 143 two-bed and 10 three-bed apartments) ranging in size from 40 to 189 square metres and will be 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 will benefit from new infrastructure developments like Dubai Metro connectivity and proximity to City Centre Me’aisem, a multi-utility mall in Production City.

Construction was expected to end in June 2019, however in July 2019 it was said to be over 96% complete.

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.

By July 2019 construction was said to be 87 percent complete. The expected completion date had been set for September 2019.

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.
