Majid Al Futtaim, the preferred developer for the region's communities, shopping malls, offices, and hotels, has unveiled its latest development concept, Ghaf Woods, the first forest living community in the heart of Dubai. Initially introduced at MIPIM 2024 in Cannes, France, this concept promotes a harmonious living environment characterized by lush greenery, improved connectivity, and exceptional sustainability. Ahmed El Shamy, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim Properties, stated, "The launch of Ghaf Woods marks a pivotal moment for Majid Al Futtaim. As we embark on our fourth decade of enhancing experiences for our customers and communities, this launch signifies a new era of innovation, offering residents a unique and unparalleled lifestyle, reinforcing our status as regional lifestyle pioneers." He further noted, "Ghaf Woods is not just a new community but the start of a new era in premium developments, focusing on creative and sustainable community design, with its appeal expected to reach far beyond the UAE." Planned to be developed in eight phases until 2031, Ghaf Woods will span 738,000 sq m near the Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Highway, close to Global Village. It will feature over 7,000 high-end units, including one to three-bedroom apartments and penthouses, all offering stunning forest views. The development aims to redefine indoor-outdoor living, integrating its world-class design with the natural surroundings. Known as a 'Green Lung', the community promises up to 20% cleaner air than other developments, thanks to its abundant trees. With 15 sq m of open space per resident, it exceeds World Health Organisation standards by 40%. Ghaf Woods will also be home to over 20 bird species and will prioritize health, wellness, and relaxation, with forest-lined pathways connecting its experiential neighborhoods. Residents will enjoy extensive outdoor facilities, including eight kilometers of walking trails, a 3.5-kilometer biking loop, and resort-style pools, fostering a healthier lifestyle. The community will also include Distrikt, a multi-purpose neighborhood hub offering farm-to-table dining options. Majid Al Futtaim continues to innovate with customer-centric solutions, enhancing the daily experiences of those living, working, and visiting its lifestyle destinations.
