Desert Rose City Overview

Desert Rose City is a planned 4,000 hectare city in Dubai just to the east of Academic City. The AED 30 billion project will be home to 160,000 people and will be surrouded by greenery in keeping with its eco-friendly theme.

The city will have 30,000 residences in total of which two thirds will be available to Emiratis and one third available to expatriates.

Desert Rose City is designed to produce 40,000 gallons of drinking water as well as 40 per cent of its own electricity via a 200 megawatt renewable energy plant. All the buildings will have solar panels on the roofs and there will be a waste recycling facility and eco-friendly buildings. The ultimate aim is to reduce the carbon footprint by 300,000 tonnes per year.
