Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, has approved the first phase of the development model of residential neighbourhoods in the emirate.

The Crown Prince presided over a meeting of the Higher Committee for Development & Citizens Affairs in Dubai and approved the model residential neighbourhoods for citizens. The first phase of the plan, covers a total area of 177,712,000 sq. ft. in the residential areas of Al Mizhar 1, Al Khawaneej 2, and Al Barsha 2.

Sheikh Hamdan highlighted the importance of providing the best possible environment, facilities and services to the citizens of Dubai in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

He said: “We constantly strive to raise the quality of life of citizens in Dubai and strengthen community bonds as part of our comprehensive human-centred urban development plan that aims to build sustainable future cities.”

He directed the Committee’s teams to develop plans and initiatives to support economic development activities in residential neighbourhoods that will enable citizens to launch their own projects.

Sheikh Hamdan approved plans and designs for residential developments in Al Mizhar 1, Al Khawaneej 2, and Al Barsha 2. Each development will have its own distinctive character and identity. The design of the Al Mizhar 1 development was inspired by the Ghaf tree, while the design of the Al Khawaneej 2 development was inspired by water and the Al Barsha 2 development by sand dunes. Gardens and squares in the residential neighbourhoods will provide facilities for sports and recreational activities.

The three model residential neighbourhoods will cover an area of approximately 177,712,000 sq. ft. (57,048,000 sq. ft. in Al Barsha 2; 72,871,000 sq. ft. in Al Mizhar 1; and 47,791,000 sq. ft. in Al Khawaneej 2). The model neighbourhoods offer investment and business opportunities for citizens residing in the area through restaurants, open markets, shops, halls and sports facilities.

Here's a look at how the model residential areas for citizens in Dubai will look like:

The meeting also tackled the provision of facilities and support to the emirate's residents, enabling them to launch their own projects in a manner that allows them social, family and demographic stability.
