HH Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs has approved contracts for phase one of a project to build and renovate 10,000 houses for the UAE citizens, at a cost of AED1.5bn ($408m).

Sheikh Mansour said the vital project reflects President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan's keenness to provide decent living standards and prosperity to the people of the UAE, the WAM news agency reported.

The scheme will be overseen by the Follow-up Committee of Initiatives of President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and the homes will be awarded based on “the lifestyle of the Emirati families, functionality, comfort and privacy,” the report said.

The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2017 and the project features mixed-use housing complexes, each containing 100 villas and associated facilities.
