The Al Falah project was first launched in 2012 and has already provided citizens with 4,857 homes
Development of the third phase of the Al Falah housing project has begun according to Abu Dhabi officials. The project is being developed over an area of 2.1m sqm at a total investment of over US $523mn.
According to officials, the project will boast 899 residential villas, five mosques, as well as other key amenities and allocated plots of land for commercial and community facilities. The latest phase reflects the increasing urban expansion of the Al Falah area, according to the Abu Dhabi Executive Council.
His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, recently conducted an inspection tour of the project. He was briefed on the infrastructure, building specifications and architectural design features of the project, which is part of the Emirati Neighbourhood initiative.
Later he reviewed the interior and exterior finishes of the villas, which are designed to meet the needs of citizens and enhance their quality of life in line with the highest international standards, the statement concluded.
In mid September 2022, Sheikh Hamdan launched an integrated housing plan for Dubai nationals.
Sheikh Khaled was accompanied by Dr. Ahmed Mubarak Al Mazrouei, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Office; Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa, Chairman of the Department of Municipalities and Transport and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Housing Authority; Saif Saeed Ghobash, Secretary-General of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council; Hamad Hareb Al Muhairi, Director-General of the Abu Dhabi Housing Authority; Muna Al Dhaheri, Director-General of Operational Affairs at Abu Dhabi Executive Office; Saif Badr Al Qubaisi, Director-General of the Department of Municipalities and Transport; Talal Al Dhiyebi, Chief Executive Officer at Aldar Properties; and a number of senior engineers from the Abu Dhabi Housing Authority.
“The inauguration of this phase of the housing project reflects our leadership’s directives to ensure the highest living standards, stability, and wellbeing for Emirati citizens and their families. The project contributes to creating dynamic, attractive and secure neighbourhoods that enhance the lifestyle of citizens and stimulate economic and social growth across Abu Dhabi,” said Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa.
Hamad Hareb Al Muhairi added, “In delivering the directives of our leadership by enhancing quality of life and stability for our citizens, we remain committed to develop housing projects that meet their needs and ensure the comprehensive development of neighbourhoods.”
The expansion of Al Falah is the latest phase of the project, which was first launched in 2012. The project’s first and second phases are said to have already provided citizens with 4,857 homes.
In late February 2023, 8,500 housing plots were awarded to UAE nationals.
Each villa will boast five bedrooms, two Majlis (one for men and one for women), dining and living rooms, and other facilities, the announcement explained.
In late March 2023, Hill won the 50,000-unit Al Fursan PMC contract.
