The developer
The project was developed by Dubai Sports City.

Dubai Sports City is built around five major sports venues and features a number of sports academies. Located on Mohammad Bin Zayed Road the residential aspect of the project consists of mid-rise apartment buildings, townhouses and villas. Several of the sports facilities have been completed but there are several vacant residential plots where construction has not yet started.

Sports City contains three distinct residential districts: Canal Residence, Victory Heights and Gallery Villas.

Canal Residence is a collection of five apartment buildings designed in different architectural styles bordering the 1.2 kilometre long, 15 metre wide waterway. There are studios and one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments all sharing community gymnasiums, swimming pools, barbeque spots and children’s play areas.

Victory Heights is a seven-village development built on the golf course fairways and consists of almost a thousand villas and townhouses in different sizes with different facilities.

Gallery Villas is the upmarket district with 75 exclusive three- and five-bedroom villas and townhouses, also built around the golf course.

Construction History

The majority of the 160 building plots in Sports City are for mid-rise (ie up to 25 floors) residential towers. To date September 2020 we estimate that 57 buildings have been completed, 7 more are under construction, and 13 are ‘on hold’, so it’ll be some time before this place is finished.
