After collaborating with Aldar Properties to revise the Al Raha Beach Master Plan, the Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC) has approved the master plan through its Development Review Streamline Process.

Mohammed Al Mubarak, deputy chief executive officer of Aldar Properties, commented: “We are very pleased with the outcome of our collaborative work with the UPC on the Al Raha Beach Master Plan. It is considerably improved to match the needs of our customers and today’s market demand.

"We are seeing significant sales and leasing pick-up on Al Raha Beach, this is great news for us as it paves the way to bring new, high-quality residential products to market this year.”

Al Raha Beach East is the first phase of the overall Al Raha Beach project, a mixed-use development being constructed near Yas lsland, and will provide over 3,000 apartments, townhouses and villas as well as 50,000m2 of prime Grade A office space.

The development is a waterfront community that stretches over 20km of reclaimed land along the coast, with a series of canals and islands interlinked by boulevards.

Al Raha Beach has been designed to accommodate a future public tram line that will connect to Abu Dhabi’s public transportation system, as well as numerous water taxi stations along the canals. Reclamation and infrastructure works have commenced since 2006.

An estimated residential population of approximately 60,000 is planned.
