Jumeirah Garden City Overview

Jumeirah Garden City is a medium-density residential district under construction between Al Satwa and Sheikh Zayed Road. It is part of Meraas' plan to revitalise Dubai's bustling Al Satwa area.

The masterplan for the district is a scaled-down revision of an early 2008 version for the area which originally depicted a canal lined by tall skyscrapers. Due to the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 the project was simplified and the canal element cancelled. What remains is a plan for a mixed-use neighbourhood based on a grid layout containing modest residential apartments, retail spaces, hotels and parks.

The landmark Obai Bin Kaab Masjid and various utilities remain, but all other buildings in the area have been demolished to make way for the new development.

Jumeirah Garden City History

The project was originally conceived as an AED350 billion ($95bn) mini-Manhattan style city which would be home to some of the tallest buildings in the world. It was the first project from Meraas Development and was masterplanned by Chicago architect Adrian Smith from Gordon Gill Architecture.

The masterplan depicted a number of elaborate skyscrapers and towers which would be home to a population of 50,000 to 60,000 residents. The 100 million square foot development would comprise seven districts including Dubai Park, which would have been half the size of Safa Park.

A sub-district called Jumeirah Gardens was masterplanned by Japanese firm Nikken Sekkei and depicted a canal running directly parallel to Sheikh Zayed Road with hundreds of glass-fronted skyscrapers, as can be seen in the video below:

The timing of the launch was unfortunate, however, with the 2008 Global Financial Crisis starting to grip the world. Despite the downturn, the demolition work required for the city began in 2008 and the first phase was given an estimated completion date of December 2013.

In 2009, shortly after that announcement, the project was put on hold whilst the plans were ‘re-evaluated’ to account for the change in the financial climate. A few years later a much simpler plan emerged without the canal connecting the various elements together and without the tall skyscrapers. As such, each part of the original masterplan became its own separate project and a major element, namely the super-tall skyscrapers and the northern canal running parallel to Sheikh Zayed Road, was cancelled.

Three major aspects of the the original plan, City Walk, Jumeirah Bay, and Pearl Jumeirah island were built between 2013 and 2020 and the Al Satwa area redevelopment was scaled down to a simple district of parks surrounded by mid-rise apartment buildings. In 2016 a revised masterplan for Jumeirah Garden City emerged and the freeholds for the residential plots were put up for sale to private developers. No deadline to construct was issued so there is no way to know when the area will be complete. The first signs of building work appeared in 2017 and the first buildings were finished by 2019. As of summer 2021 there were around 50 complete buildings and another 25 in various stages of construction.
