Long-standing Dubai community, Jebel Ali Village, is set to be redeveloped to address the growing demand for housing in the area surrounding Ibn Battuta Mall.

Dubai developer Nakheel said on Tuesday the project will offer a range of medium density housing options with supporting services including schools, convenience retail, community clubs and recreation areas.

"The area on which Jebel Ali Village now stands marked the hill where Sheikh Rashid once stood and proclaimed his vision for the Jebel Ali Port in the early 1970s. This area has played a significant role in the history and growth of Dubai, and Nakheel is proud to be redeveloping this important area as part of Dubai's vision for the future," said Mohammed Rashed, director of Jebel Ali Village.

A number of the existing facilities will remain as part of the new masterplan such as the mosque and the Jebel Ali Club, which will remain open during its expansion and refurbishment.

The central park will also be extended to provide 12 hectares of useable space and a wide range of facilities within a landscaped environment.

Construction work will begin on the existing Jebel Ali Village in late 2008 and the entire project expected to take five years to complete. Preliminary earthworks are scheduled to begin on the vacant area of land that surrounds the development in the next few months.
