The new project, which includes 410 villas for UAE citizens, integrates modern design with features inspired by Emirati culture. The project was inaugurated by Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed, the Ruler’s Representative in the Al Dhafra region.

The Emirati-style residential community in Al Mirfa City is spread across a 2-million-square-meter area and features 5-bedroom units as well as other key facilities. Located on the coast, Al Mughirah includes four mosques, facilities for 30 shops, 13 parks, and beach facilities.

“Each of these residential units covers a total land area of 543 sqm, and consists of the majlis (separate for men and women), food hall, two family living rooms, kitchen, store, plus two private rooms for a maid and a driver, among other facilities,” commented Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative in Al Dhafra Region, after unveiling the project.

Sheikh Hamdan has stated that the Al Mughirah housing project aims to provide an integrated Emirati neighborhood that meets the needs of UAE families by providing the best quality and design following sustainability standards.

Furthermore, he has briefed on the project and shown the design plans and specifications along with the interior and exterior details of the project which includes integrated community facilities, such as schools, shopping malls, parks, and open areas, supported by roads, street lights, rainwater drainage, and infrastructure work for communication lines, sewage networks, as well as water and electricity supply.

Mr. Falah Mohamed Al Ahbabi, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Housing Council, has noted that it reflects the UAE leadership’s determination to continue to ensure a decent life for all citizens, with the ultimate goal of maintaining social welfare in the emirate.

“Al Mughira provides an ideal residential community that combines the advantages of modern designs inspired from a quintessential Emirati environment,” he added.
