“Expo Vil­lage will be brought to life dur­ing Expo 2020 Dubai, and KEO’s vi­sion in de­sign­ing this de­vel­op­ment goes be­yond the mega event to sup­port the client in their strate­gic vi­sion to de­liver a sig­na­ture res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment of choice to the emi­rate.”

Expo Vil­lage is ex­pected to fea­ture around 2300 apart­ment units that will pro­vide a home for thou­sands of Expo par­tic­i­pants, as well as a school, day care cen­tre and a health­care fa­cil­ity.

This de­vel­op­ment is lo­cated ad­ja­cent to the Expo 2020 des­ti­na­tion and con­sists of 11 plots, each with podium park­ing and state-of-the-art build­ings, to be de­liv­ered in two phases.
