Dubai Healthcare City, Nshama plan mixed-use project

DUBAI, November 11, 2015

Dubai Healthcare City Authority has joined hands with Nshama, a private developer of smart integrated communities, to develop a mixed-use project as part of the free zone’s wellness expansion project at Al Jadaf area in Dubai, UAE.

As per the agreement, the duo will create a dynamic living, working and recreation environment for the Dubai Healthcare City community, residents, and medical tourists in the Phase Two of Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC).

The wellness project will come up over a 22 million sq ft area at Al Jadaf Dubai, parallel to Al Garhoud Bridge overlooking the historic Dubai Creek lined with cultural and architectural sites.

The agreement will deliver an integrated community, named Al Fursan, comprising premium apartments, serviced residences, four- and five-star hotels, and retail and leisure features, spread over 2.9 million sq ft of Dubai Healthcare City’s Phase 2 expansion project.

Dubai-based Nshama develops elegantly masterplanned neighbourhoods that are smart, interconnected and sustainable.

The partnership with Nshama demonstrates Dubai Healthcare City’s commitment to sustainable urban planning and the importance of bringing together interdisciplinary stakeholders to ensure long-term growth, said Dr Raja Al Gurg, the vice-chairperson and executive director of Dubai Healthcare City Authority after signing the agreement with Fred Durie, the chief executive of Nshama in the presence of Dr Amina Al Rustamani, Group CEO of Tecom Investments.

She pointed out that Nshama’s developmental model dovetails with its planning requirements for the Phase Two.

"The project will cater to the growing demand for living choices from healthcare specialists who relocate to the emirate and from medical tourists," said Dr Al Gurg.

The first phase of planning will take into account connectivity to promote activity and interaction on a community level, and the required infrastructure to ensure environmental prudence and social responsibility, she added.

Durie said the JV was a key addition to Nshama's development portfolio. "The project will be an interconnected community with walkways linking different components, offering a refreshing creek-side ambience," he noted.
"Nshama will focus solely on the development aspects such as the master plan and design, and work closely with Dubai Healthcare City to ensure optimum land use to integrate the network of high-quality, mixed-use healthcare and wellness offerings with a residential community aspect," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
