Dubai Municipality has announced the launch of a new housing project in Hatta that will include the construction of 32 residences for citizens in the area.

Eng. Hussain Nasser Lootah, director general, Dubai Municipality, said the project is in line with the directives of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, VP and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai, to provide UAE citizens with sufficient and apt housing facilities.

"Dubai Municipality is delighted to carry out this project in tune with the dream of the Dubai Ruler to provide citizens sufficient and high quality housing facilities,” Lootah said, adding that the new homes, when completed, will be presented to Hatta residents as a gift from Sheikh Mohammed.

According to Lootah, each villa in the project will contain six bedrooms, a maid room, a majlis and a hall. 29 of these villas will be two-storey, 330m2 residences, while the remaining three will be single-storey, 165m2 homes.

The new residences, which have been designed featuring elements of Emirati heritage characteristic of traditional Hatta buildings, will also be incorporating the municipality’s green building codes in their construction, Lootah said. For instance, the external lighting and water heating in these new villas will be powered by solar energy.

Lootah also said that there are other projects planned in Hatta, about which announcements will be made soon.
