This new development at the border of Abu Dhabi and Dubai consists of 300 hectares (750 acres) of a balanced community with residential, commercial, retail, and community amenities. The development enjoys the potential of becoming a major hub between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, providing ideal affordable housing for 20,000 residents and amenities for people working in the neighboring area. This unique development is organized around a hierarchy of major thoroughfares, roads and parkways, and promotes mainly low-to- medium density neighborhoods.
The illustrative plan represents the overall development with its focus on neighborhoods contained around community centers and neighborhood centers. Pedestrian access throughout the development is achieved with open space corridors that connect neighborhoods together and to regional open space parks. Several pedestrian underpasses allow unobstructed access beneath several of the major streets. Neighborhood amenities such as convenience stores, fire and police stations, daily mosques, recreation and entertainment facilities, and local schools are strategically placed within each of the neighborhoods. The District Center is located in the core of the development, which includes a transit center, hotel, grocery store, retail shops, Friday Mosque, a Community Center, and Sports Center. Apartments and townhomes close to the District Center encourage pedestrian interaction and less dependency on vehicular transportation.
