The project was first announced by Dubai Properties in October 2016.

Villanova properties include ‘cluster homes’, apartments and detached villas.

The cluster homes are groups of four houses of different types, each with its own back garden, set around an enclosed shared courtyard.

The Mediterranean style houses are designed to be family-friendly and are surrounded by parks with walking and biking trails.

In January 2017 Dubai Properties announced 'La Quinta', a collection of three-, four- and five-bedroom villas, and in 2019 'La Rosa'..

Design Stage

Images depicting the initial concept designs for Villanova.

Projects often go through a number of design revisions as they progress and developers may or may not honour their original plans when it comes to architectural designs, amenities and landscaping. The images below are provided as a means to compare the original plans with the realised development.

Construction Updates

In December 2017 Arabtec Holding was awarded the Dh1.025 billion contract for the construction of the Amaranta and La Quinta phases of Villanova. The work is expected to take 28 months, with a delivery date of mid 2020.
