Nakheel unveils Forbidden City in Dubai

Forbidden city from Nakheel
The Dubai-based master real estate developer, Nakheel, yesterday unveiled the 'Forbidden City' in the Dubai International City.

Being home to 4000 low-rise studio, single and double bedroom apartments, work on Dubai's Fobidden City will commenced in April 2008 and will be complete by April 2011.

Drawing inspiration from the legendary Royal Court Palance of Imperial China, the Forbidden City will offer an extensive range of community amenities, further enhanced by a series of leisure and retail offerings at the Dragon Mart and International City. At the heart of the development will be a landscaped vista, leading to Ornate Grand Mosque, the spiritual centerpiece of the community.

The City will feature about 50 retail stores including internet cafes, food outlets, restaurants and boutiques. The residents get to enjoy the proximity to Dragon Mart, offering a wide range of Chinese merchandise, and a range of affordable accommodation options in an accessible living environment.

The Residential District of the project is divided into 10 themed communities representing France, England, China, Italy, Greece, Persia, Russia, Italy, Morocco and Spain.

Located adjacent, is the Lake District, the residential community, which shares wonderful views of Al Warsan Lake, one of the few freshwater wetlands in the UAE. The lake houses about 190 species of birds, including the rarest birds known to Arabian Peninsula and its neighboring regions.

Nakheel has taken precautions to ensure the long-term protection of this habitat, and suitable amenities are being planned that will enable the public to enjoy the wildlife here.

According to Eng. Rashid Al Helli, Director, International City, the low-rise residential community will be unique in its design and has been well-planned to taking into consideration all aspects required by the residents in terms of leisure and retail amenities, to build a thriving and sustainable community.
