Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC) has revealed plans to build 400 villas in a beachfront community for Emiratis in Al Gharbia. The residential neighbourhood in Mirfa Beach, which lies on a stretch of coastline 160km west of Abu Dhabi City, will be a complete sustainable community offering amenities such as parks, shops, mosques and a public corniche, according to the UPC.
The project has been designed in line with the Plan Al Gharbia 2030, a strategic framework plan that outlines the physical development of the approximately 35,000-sq-km region.
The Mirfa Beach Master Plan, which includes 410 Emirati villas and all of the infrastructure and community facilities, will be constructed by Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) in coordination with the Abu Dhabi Housing Authority (ADHA). The master plan has been handed over to Musanada for detailed master planning, building design and construction.
The villas will be built on plots measuring 30m by 36m. Construction is due
to begin in the first half of 2017. The facilities in the community are being design based on the Abu Dhabi Community Facility Planning Standards and Abu Dhabi Mosque Development Regulations.
“Mirfa Beach is a significant project for both Al Gharbia, the UPC and its partners for implementation,” said Abdulla Al Sahi, Acting Executive Director of Planning and Infrastructure Sector at UPC. “The concept of a self-sufficient community is in line with the UPC’s Complete Sustainable Communities Initiative, which aims to develop high-quality communities across the Emirate.
“Mirfa Beach is an important step in the progress of Plan Al Gharbia 2030 and the future of the region. It is also an example of the strong working partnership between various organisations to improve the quality of life for Al Gharbia’s residents, in line with their needs and expectations.”
Mirfa is one of seven settlements of Al Gharbia included in Plan Al Ghar-bia 2030, joining Madinat Zayed, Liwa, Delma, Ghayathi, Sila’a and Ruwais.
