The director general of Dubai Municipality, Hussain Nasser Lootah, also announced that a committee has been formed to supervise the studies, designs and the construction of the city itself. It will be headed by Abdullah Raffia, assistant director-general for the Engineering and Planning Sector.

The Dhs30 billion mixed-use development will spread across 14,000 hectares and house 160,000 residents. Clusters will be in the shape of desert flowers and 20,000 plots have been allocated for building luxury homes for Emiratis while 10,000 plots will contain affordable housing units for expatriates.
