06 MONTREAL RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT
District Union is a Dhs2.5 billion residential development now being constructed by REZ Real Estate. The first phase of a project that could eventually total 4000 units features 364 apartments as well as a community sports centre and gymnasium; also planned are a library and aquatic centre. The project will be bounded by a spacious wooded area, to ensure insulation from nearby highway infrastructure, while residents will also have access to parks, pedestrian paths, bike paths and cross-country ski trails. Green roofs and ecological water management are among the sustainable design principles being incorporated into the development.
