The Pulse is one of the first two communities to be built in the Residential District at Dubai South. The other is The Villages.
The developer, Dubai South, is owned by the Dubai Government and is building thousands of homes, shops and offices on a 145 sq km site around Al Maktoum International Airport.
Centred on a six-lane boulevard The Pulse comprises 14 apartment blocks, a cluster of 236 townhouses, two hotels, a mosque and a shopping mall.
The two- and three-bedroom townhouses will be the first to be built and handover is due to begin in mid 2019. Each house will have a garden or terrace and separate entrance.
Also scheduled for completion in mid 2019 are the apartment buildings, The Pulse Boulevard Apartments, a group of four 12-storey blocks, and The Pulse Residences, ten mid-rise blocks. The buildings will contain compact one-, two- and three-bedroom flats, suitable for couples, young professionals and small families.
Dubai South is the first property developer to use the Dubai Government’s new ‘happiness meter’, which asks users to rate their level of happiness. If enough people define themselves as unhappy when using the developer’s website the company will be held accountable by the Government.
To create a happy community, Dubai South decided to separate studios and one-bedroom apartments in these first blocks from the larger two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments. By doing this it is hoped that singles and couples will not be disturbed by children running around early in the morning, and families will not be kept awake by people having parties.
