A development milestone
The appointment of Tristar is a momentous milestone in the development of the Residential District because it strengthens the commitment of Dubai South in terms of a sizeable investment, as well as towards announcing the commencement of work that will cement the position of the Residential District as a city tailored to cater to every lifestyle need, offering accessible and affordable services and amenities.
