Al Furjan Overview
Al Furjan is a 560 hectare residential development located just off Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, close to Discovery Gardens and Ibn Battuta Mall. Phase 1 was completed in 2014 when 800 villas and 335 apartments were delivered, but there is still much building work to be done before the entire project is finished. However, investor demand following the announcement that Dubai was to host the 2020 World Expo resulted in the announcement of ten new residential towers and seven hotel apartments.
Al Furjan contains 819 houses, all with gardens and terraces, half of which are terraced houses while the remainder are three, five and six bedroom detached villas.
Al Furjan is Arabic for a ‘collection of homes’ or ‘small village’ and this place is designed to create a friendly, community environment among residents, with houses built in small clusters connected by a series of walkways and parks. All landscaping work, including more than 30 park areas and walkways representing a quarter of the Al Furjan master plan, is now complete.
- The master developer is Nakheel PJSC.
- Amenities include a Spinneys supermarket, a children's swimming pool, a convenience store, a leisure club, a mosque, a restaurant, a swimming pool, car parking, cycle routes, food and beverage outlets, shops and sports facilities.
- From Al Furjan it takes roughly 29 minutes to drive to Dubai Mall, 21 minutes to Palm Jumeirah, 26 minutes to Burj Al Arab and 21 minutes to The Walk JBR.
- Dubai International Airport (DXB) is roughly 52 minutes' drive and the new Al Maktoum International Airport is roughly 37 minutes' drive. All durations are calculated by Google Maps and assume the fastest route in typical traffic conditions.
