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 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.

Common areas
Chiller fees
The project is very new almost 1 and half years old. It is a community made up of 10-14 buildings and joint shops (which till this moment are not opened, not a single supermarket or any store is open yet) a common area with beautiful scenery and greenery, while 2 more… pools are made for children only as they are maximum 1.2m deep and without sun beds. The finishing of the building is very cheap, it very bad, paint comes off easily, tiles break easy, water leaks from faucets sometime, the sound isolation is ZERO if you like to live in a calm house, do not move in, you can hear your neighbors talking sometimes. The worst spec. is the Chiller fees, it is supplied by EMPOWER, however managed by the project agency which tends to split the billing and fees as they like, the average for 1BHK in peak summer is 1,000 AED (chiller only excluding DEWA) and on other day average is 500-700 aed/month however if you do not use the chiller at all you will pay 180-200 aed per month.Show less
