Boasting over 4,000 elegant homes complemented by an abundance of open spaces and a multitude of amenities, Al Furjan is a new model for community living. Inspired by 'new urbanism' principles, the development captures the values of traditional neighbourhood living within four communities. The neighborhoods provide a sanctuary of well planned spaces framed by architecture and landscape design that celebrate local history and embrace modern building practice. Each community will be defined by its own Village Centre offering a variety of amenities from supermarkets, coffee shops, restaurants, open spaces and gym facilities all within walking distance. Two schools are also planned for Al Furjan.
Mohammed Rashed Bin Dhabeah, Director, Al Furjan, said:
"We are delighted to announce the launch of Al Furjan. The name Al Furjan is a local phrase that means a collection of homes or a small village, that embodies traditional community values. Inspired by new urbanism, we have created a master plan that has used planning and architectural principles that will work together to create a human-scale, pedestrian friendly, family focused development."
Al Furjan combines 3, 5 and 6 bedroom villas and terraced homes with open spaces for children and families to interact. Inspired by traditional designs, villas in the first phase of the development will be one of two styles; the Dubai, a favoured local architectural style, or the Quortaj, a fusion of Islamic and Mediterranean architecture.
Innovative design details are incorporated in every aspect of the development from the creative use of community spaces to the open feel of the villas and terrace homes, which are easily adapted for Western or Arabic living. Residents have the choice between a selection of home styles on different plot sizes which will result in more diverse streetscapes.
Within Al Furjan, landscaped pedestrian pathways are woven into the neighbourhoods connecting cul-de-sacs and open spaces, providing a natural connectivity throughout the communities.
Mohammed Rashed Bin Dhabeah continued:
"Al Furjan provides choices for different budgets, tastes and needs with a variety that is distinctive in the region. We have designed Al Furjan with families in mind and the planning principles adopted, complimented by the range of amenities within and surrounding Al Furjan, will create an ideal community to invest in for you and your family to grow."
A private launch was held on the 26th August exclusively for Johara, the VIP ladies banking division of the Dubai Islamic Bank. The general sales launch will commence on 5th September.
