Al Furjan
Updated: 23rd September, 2023

Al Furjan

A 560-hectare residential development close to Discovery Gardens and Ibn Battuta Mall. 800 villas and 335 apartments have been delivered.
Al Furjan
Al Furjan is an area located within Jebel Ali District, Dubai.
The developer
The project was developed by Nakheel through its subsidiary Al Furjan.
Amenities include a Spinneys supermarket, car parking, a children's swimming pool, a convenience store, cycle routes, food and beverage outlets, a leisure club, a mosque, a restaurant, shops, sports facilities and a swimming pool.

Al Furjan Phase 1 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, 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 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.
