Al Furjan is a 560 hectare residential development located just off Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, close to Discovery Gardens and Ibn Battuta Mall. Phase 1 was completed in 2014 when 800 villas and 335 apartments were delivered, but there is still much building work to be done before the entire project is finished. However, investor demand following the announcement that Dubai was to host the 2020 World Expo resulted in the announcement of ten new residential towers and seven hotel apartments.
Al Furjan contains 819 houses, all with gardens and terraces, half of which are terraced houses while the remainder are three, five and six bedroom detached villas.
Al Furjan is Arabic for a ‘collection of homes’ or ‘small village’ and this place is designed to create a friendly, community environment among residents, with houses built in small clusters connected by a series of walkways and parks. All landscaping work, including more than 30 park areas and walkways representing a quarter of the Al Furjan master plan, is now complete.
