A mega development project will see almost 15,000 new homes built near the Abu Dhabi-Dubai border.
Aldar Properties announced its ambitious plans for Alghadeer, which is set to become a thriving metropolis.
The project consists of 14,408 units, including villas, townhouses, and maisonettes, in a 1.3 million sq m area.
It will also include office space, retail space, hospitality, education and community amenities.
More details are yet to revealed, but the space will feature food and drink hotspots, a farmers’ market, running and cycle tracks, gym, camping and barbecue sites.
And if that wasn’t enough, there will also be a network of walkable gardens and parks lit entirely by solar-powered lights.
Talal Al Dhiyebi, the chief executive of Aldar Properties, said: “The launch of Alghadeer is clear statement of Aldar’s ambition. From its strategic location to its sustainable living initiatives, Alghadeer signals the creation of a new way of living for UAE residents, now and in the future.
“We are confident of the demand for a community which offers a distinct lifestyle - peaceful residential neighbourhoods, within close proximity to the bustling cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
“This launch further underlines how Aldar is expanding its successful destination-led strategy to additional areas of Abu Dhabi, capitalizing on the UAE’s flourishing population as well as our reputation as Abu Dhabi’s leading developer.
“The scale and 15-year timeframe of the development underlines Aldar’s confidence in the Abu Dhabi residential market.”
The first neighbourhood of 611 homes will go on sale during Cityscape Abu Dhabi taking place in the UAE capital from Tuesday.
Prices within this first release will start from Dhs290,000 for maisonettes, with townhouses starting at Dhs899,900.
Construction of this first neighbourhood is scheduled to commence in 2018 and be completed during 2021.
The new Alghadeer masterplan incorporates Aldar’s existing community of the same name which boasts over 2,000 homes.
