Nakheel floats tenders at Dubai's Al Furjan
Infrastructure structure works sought for mixed-use development
Master developer Nakheel has floated a tender for infrastructure works at its Al Furjan development in Dubai.
The scope of works include construction of the following: roadworks, water distribution network, main irrigation network, firefighting network, wastewater network, stormwater drainage network, street lighting, power supply, and telecommunication networks (civils only - ducts, manholes etc).
Located just off Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, close to Discovery Gardens and Ibn Battuta Mall, Al Furjan consists of 819 residential units, all with gardens and terraces. 50% are terraced houses; the remainder are three, five and six bedroom detached villas.
Nakheel delivered the 61 remaining villas to customers in May. In addition, all landscaping work, including more than 30 park areas and walkways that make up almost a quarter of the Al Furjan masterplan, is complete.
Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said: “Al Furjan, meaning ‘collection of homes’ or ‘small village’ is designed to create a friendly, community environment among residents. Homes are built in small clusters connected by a series of walkways and parks.
"All 819 homes have a garden with low-level fencing, bringing an air of openness and a sense of communal outdoor living to the Al Furjan community. We are proud to have delivered this unique as the latest addition to our portfolio of completed projects.”
