Hamdan bin Mohammed Reviews Advancements in Al Khawaneej Housing Project

H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, and Chairman of the Higher Committee for Development and Citizens Affairs, today reviewed the progress of a housing project being developed for citizens in Al Khawaneej 2.

During the visit, H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed said that ensuring the familial stability of citizens, providing them with decent living conditions and enhancing their well-being are among the top priorities of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

“The housing programme for citizens is under my direct supervision, and we aim to establish unique residential communities designed to bring comfort and happiness to Emirati families,”

His Highness said.

Richly adorned with vast green spaces and open expanses, the project ensures residents can move around safely and conveniently without relying on vehicles. The area's design features visually appealing entrances, shaded pathways adorned with trees, and a variety of public amenities to enrich community life.

Model of Residential Villas

On his arrival at the site of the project in Al Khawaneej 2, H.H. was welcomed by Mattar Al Tayer, Commissioner General for Infrastructure, Urban Planning and Well-Being Pillar, and Omar Bu Shehab, CEO of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Housing Establishment.

The project features 1,050 diverse residential units, including 128 single villas, 410 duplex villas, and 512 townhouse villas. The project also features a commercial and service centre, dedicated pedestrian and cycling paths, playgrounds, a park, and a nursery.

H.H. inspected three residential villa models, which stood out for their efficient use of space, seamlessly integrating interior and exterior layouts to cater to the requirements of Emirati families. The single villas span an area of 7,000 square feet with a built-up area of 5,080 square feet, featuring five bedrooms. The duplex villas sit on 5,000 square feet of land, with a construction area of 4,490 square feet, also housing five bedrooms. Meanwhile, the area of townhouse villas varies between 4,000 to 5,000 square feet, with a built-up area of 3,943 square feet, comprising four bedrooms.

Citizens' Well-Being

Omar Bu Shehab emphasized that the Al Khawaneej 2 housing project underscores the leadership's dedication to enhancing citizens' well-being by creating a comprehensive residential environment that caters to their needs and prioritizes comfort and safety. He highlighted that this initiative, aligned with the highest urban planning standards, is part of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Housing Establishment's broader strategy to meet the projected housing needs of citizens and improve their quality of life for the next two decades. Additionally, Bu Shehab mentioned that the establishment is concurrently working on delivering five housing projects, including those in Hatta, Al Aweer, Wadi Al Amardi, and Oud Al Muteena, with an overarching goal of benefiting over 2,200 Emirati families by 2025.

Land Stock Sustainability

In line with the objectives of the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan, the citizens’ housing strategy aims to meet the housing demands for the next 20 years. This approach involves careful allocation and planning of the emirate's available land to ensure the sustainability of the land stock in accordance with set guidelines and criteria. Additionally, the strategy includes diversifying residential unit options and upgrading living conditions in housing areas for citizens by incorporating green areas, shopping centres, and leisure facilities.

Comprehensive Vision

H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum's visionary approach to citizen housing prioritizes sustainable development, emphasizing well-being and elevated living standards. Aligned with the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan, this initiative, backed by an unprecedented AED65 billion investment over the next two decades, aims to solidify Dubai's global leadership in the housing sector. The recently completed Al Warqa 4 Housing Development Project, comprising 136 villas, stands as a testament to this vision, offering diverse architectural styles and seamlessly integrating indoor and outdoor spaces to meet the unique needs of Emirati families. Each villa, spread across 728,510 square feet, features two floors with distinct living and private areas, reflecting a commitment to enhancing the quality of life for Dubai's citizens.
