Beachfront community development set to benefit UAE Nationals in Al Gharbia

ABU DHABI, 26th October, 2015 (WAM) — More than four hundred villas are planned for UAE Nationals in a beachfront community development in Al Gharbia, the Western Region of Abu Dhabi Emirate.

The residential neighbourhood in Mirfa Beach, which lies on a stretch of coastline 160 km west of Abu Dhabi City, will be a complete sustainable community offering a wide range of amenities including parks, shops, mosques and a public corniche.

The Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council, UPC, was responsible for master planning the project in line with the key principles of Plan Al Gharbia 2030, the strategic framework plan that outlines the physical development of the approximately 35,000 sq. km. region.

The Mirfa Beach Master Plan, which includes 410 villas and all of the infrastructure and community facilities, will be constructed by Abu Dhabi General Services Company, Musanada, working in coordination with the Abu Dhabi Housing Authority, ADHA. The master plan was handed over by the UPC to Musanada for detailed master planning, building design and construction.

“Mirfa Beach is a significant project for both Al Gharbia, the UPC and its partners for implementation,” said Abdulla Al Sahi, Acting Executive Director, Planning and Infrastructure Sector, 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 as a whole. 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,” he added.

“The Master Plan for Mirfa Beach in Al Gharbia will include an attractive landscape design, infrastructure provisions and various entertainment and recreation facilities. The project will maintain international standards,” said Hamad Al Murar, Acting Executive Director, Design and Coordination Division, Musanada.

“Musanada is keen to professionally pursue leadership and excellence in delivering the project, as part of its contribution to the efforts exerted to realise Abu Dhabi Vision 2030 and its commitment to implement the directions of the Government of Abu Dhabi in relation to enhancing the economic development of the UAE,” Al Murar added.

Once complete, Mirfa Beach will offer residents and visitors a thriving community boasting a wide range of enjoyable amenities and landscaped open spaces.

Mirfa is one of seven settlements of Al Gharbia included within Plan Al Gharbia 2030, joining Madinat Zayed, Liwa, Delma, Ghayathi, Sila’a and Ruwais. With multiple projects under construction across the region, including the highly anticipated Etihad Rail line, Al Gharbia is fast becoming a hub for a diverse number of sectors, including tourism, oil and gas and freight transportation.
