City features modern designs with innovative ideas, combining local and Andalusian heritage
UAE authorities have completed construction of the $517m Mohamed bin Zayed Residential City project in Fujairah.
The project is designed to be a modern and sustainable housing system for mid-income Emiratis.
The project is spread over a 2.2sqkm area and boasts 1,100 residential villas equipped with advanced facilities that can provide housing for about 7,000 citizens, the statement said.
Located in the Al Hail area, 3km south of Fujairah airport, the development is said to feature 20 public parks and plots of land designated for public services. It will eventually also include schools, mosques and commercial stores, in addition to a community cultural centre and a men’s council.
The project aligns with the UAE leadership’s focus on the housing sector and keeping it at the top of its priorities in order to achieve development across all regions of the country to serve citizens, said senior officials.
On completion of the project, President HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan stressed that Emiratis represent the true wealth of the UAE and are the focus of its policies and future.
“We will continue to carry out projects that ensure a high quality of life and standard of living for Emirati families. The Mohamed bin Zayed City in Fujairah is another example to the ability to excel in planning and implement top construction projects,” said Sheikh Khalifa.
Sheikh Khalifa said important projects would continue to be rolled out throughout the country for the welfare of citizens and to enhance development and social achievements.
HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, said that since its inception the UAE had allocated large resources for housing projects to develop society and build a modern and sustainable housing system with the well-being of citizens at its heart.
He said Mohamed bin Zayed City was an iconic urban achievement in Fujairah’s housing sector and a modern city designed according to the highest standards of residential communities internationally, with a total of 1,100 villas already completed.
