Azizi Developments sources French Tarkett vinyl flooring for its gyms in Riviera

  • Through its signing with Athens Technical Services, Azizi is procuring some of the finest vinyl flooring for its gyms across Riviera in MBR City. 

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 13 July 2022: Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, has announced that it has partnered with Athens Technical Services for the supply and installation of vinyl flooring of the French brand Tarkett for the gyms at the developer’s master planned waterfront community project Riviera, located in MBR City.

Athens Technical Services is renowned for supplying some of the most exceptional flooring material options, including Tarkett, a French brand known until 2008 as Sommer-Allibert S.A.

Tarkett S.A. is multinational corporation specialising in the production of floor and wall coverings. Headquartered in La Défense, near Paris, the present company was formed in October 1997 by the merging of two others: French Sommer-Allibert and German Tarkett AG.

In his comments, Mr Farhad Azizi, CEO of Azizi Developments, said: “We are delighted to partner with another outstanding supplier. Athens Technical Services has an excellent track record, and the brand that we are procuring for our gym flooring from them – Tarkett - is leading the market in quality and designs. Gym vinyl flooring needs to go beyond looks, though – it has to be sustainable and long-lasting, safe, and practical. We are confident that Tarkett is the right match for Riviera and its stringently high quality standards, and look forward to it being installed in the coming weeks.”

Riviera is part of Azizi Developments’ award-winning portfolio. It is a premium waterfront-lifestyle destination located in the heart of MBR City that is planned to comprise 71 mid-rise buildings with approximately 16,000 residences upon its completion, conveniently located in the midst of all the business, leisure, and retail hubs of the city.

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, Riviera represents a new landmark destination that is both residential and commercial, with an abundance of retail space. 

Recently, Azizi Developments announced the 2.7-kilometre-long swimmable crystal lagoon will be completed much sooner than expected, covering an area of over 130,026 square metres that will stretch across the entirety of the community. With stunning blue flooring, filled with more than 51.5 million gallons of crystal-clear, desalinated and clean water that residents can swim in, and easily accessible via its lagoon walk — which will also feature a vast variety of artisan eateries and boutiques — Azizi’s lagoon will be a bustling space where residents can enjoy strolls along the beach-like shores, sunbathe and cool off.

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 most noteworthy points of interest, Riviera represents one of Azizi Developments’ most coveted projects.

The first building in Riviera has already received its Building Completion Certificate, while six buildings have already been energised, with the first handovers to follow in the coming weeks.

Azizi Developments’ Sales Gallery can be visited on the 13th floor of the Conrad Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road.
