Set within the city yet separated from its hustle and bustle – this has been Khalifa City’s USP for attracting residents into its fore. It is located on the Abu Dhabi mainland and has long been seen by residents as a cheaper alternative to living in the city center.

Khalifa City A is the most prominent part of Khalifa City which is about 30 kilometers from core Abu Dhabi. It is a large neighborhood lying close to the Al Raha Beach and Al Raha Gardens. The villas and townhouses are set in big plots of land, most of them with their own swimming pool. The houses are huge and feature individual designs, colorful exteriors and spacious living spaces.

The lucrative prices and serene ambience have made this locality one of the most sought-after areas in the capital. One of the main advantages of the locality is that it will take you to anywhere within Abu Dhabi in 40 minutes and to Dubai in 50 minutes.

There are a lot of schools in the vicinity including the International School of Choueifat, Raha International School, Al Yasmina School, Canadian International School Abu Dhabi and British International School. This has attracted many teachers to shift base here. For one’s shopping pleasure, the Al Raha Mall is just steps away.

The multi-specialty Mafraq Hospital is 10 kilometers away from the locality. Many clinics, nurseries, retail boutiques and grocery stores dot the area, making it a thriving residential zone. Yas Island and the many surrounding golf courses nearby enhance the attractiveness of this neighborhood.

Khalifa City B is situated further inland than Khalifa City A, near the upcoming Capital District. It is in the process of being another well-serviced residential town which will give stiff competition to its peers.

Khalifa City C or New Khalifa City is an area which joins Khalifa Cities A and B to complete the whole Khalifa project. It will have residential districts including Emirati housing projects, commercial areas, retail shops, among many others.

The Khalifa City neighborhood is set to become the most attractive residential area in Abu Dhabi, offering great luxury as well as affordable prices.
