Private developer Nshama has revealed plans for a 750 acre project set for Dubai’s Al Barsha area that it has dubbed Town Square.

The development is planned for Dubailand and will be built near the new cycle track at Al Qudra, adjacent to Emirates Road/E611 and a short drive from Motor City. The development will have 3000 three and four bedroom townhouses and 18,000 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments as well as large retail, hospitality and commercial spaces.

The project will be centred around shopping and dining districts, plazas, greenbelts, mosques, educational institutions, healthcare centres, entertainment and outdoor sports facilities. With a total land area of 31 million sq ft, it will have a high land-to-building ratio, opening up more open spaces for a greener community.

The project team includes Chief Executive Officer Fred Durie and Chief Operations Officer Abubakr Sidahmed. The pair have worked on other major projects in the city, including Downtown Dubai, Dubai Marina, Arabian Ranches and Emirates Living.

Durie said: “Nshama is ushering in a new development approach to Dubai that draws on the Dubai Plan 2021 and supports the key theme of establishing the city as a ‘preferred place to live, work and visit.’ Focused on end-users, particularly families and young people who cherish an active outdoor lifestyle, our new project brings the novel concept of a modern town square to Dubai.

“Meeting the demand for value homes from professionals and families along the city’s major growth corridor, Town Square distinguishes itself across all aspects of its design, development and after-sales service. It also meets the significant demand for middle-income value housing with quality and affordable price points as our prime consideration.”

He added: “Town Square is a smart, intelligent community that meets the aspirations of the young, trendy and value-conscious customer, enabling them to shift from a rent-based lifestyle to homes that provide them a sense of belonging. All our projects are similarly planned to meet the growing middle-income demand for end-user homes, led by our vision to bring a new lifestyle choice to Dubai that transforms the lives of people. ”
