Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, has sealed a major deal worth AED 25 million with Hard Block Factory, an award-winning concrete block supplier, for 24 of its buildings in the first and third phases of Riviera, its waterfront lifestyle community in the highly sought-after Mohammed bin Rashid City.

In his comments, Afzaal Hussain, Chief Operating Officer at Azizi Developments, said: “We carefully identify and select the suppliers and contractors we work with. The signing with HBF is another great testament to our continuous efforts in engaging with best-in-class suppliers. This exceptional concrete block manufacture was selected due to its emphasis on quality, which earned it the ‘International Award for Technology & Quality’ in Geneva, Switzerland. Our way of growing our knowledgeable and experienced engineering team, which ensures that all contractors abide by agreements, complete projects in a timely fashion, and maintain the highest standards of quality and aesthetics, and along with it our portfolio of suppliers, has proven to be highly beneficial in terms of cost efficiency, quality control and assurance, and on-schedule delivery.”

Hard Block Factory is a subsidiary of ASGC Construction Group, a sister company of Hard Precast Building Systems and Emirates Beton that is affiliated with Concrete Industries Complex. A renowned elite manufacturing conglomerate established in the UAE that meets the increasing demand for quality products in the booming construction market, Hard Block Factory is one of the largest, most advanced fully computerised manufacturers of all kinds of masonry and hourdi blocks, paving blocks, and sholin blocks for the construction industry in the region.

Riviera is Azizi’s renowned waterfront lifestyle community project located in the heart of MBR City, which, upon its completion, will comprise more than 16,000 residences spread across 71 mid-rise buildings, overlooking an extensive retail boulevard, a canal-walk with artisan eateries and boutiques, and Les Jardins — a lush-green social space.

With its strategic location near the upcoming Meydan One Mall and the Meydan Racecourse — home of the Dubai World Cup — as well as Dubai’s major business, leisure and retail hubs, Riviera is one of Azizi Developments’ most sought-after projects. Designed to introduce the French-Mediterranean lifestyle to Dubai, which is not merely about architectural art, but also about a certain ‘joie de vivre’ — a celebration of life and exultation of spirit — Riviera represents a new landmark.
