Lush, luxurious and secluded, it’s no surprise that some of Dubai’s wealthiest residents have chosen to live in Al Barari. And with villa prices at the site based just off Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road (formerly Emirates Road) starting at AED20m, it certainly takes deep pockets to secure your foothold there. The project has focused on sustainability, using recycled water from its own plant to nourish more than a million trees and shrubs. While Al Barari is a relatively new project — originally launched in 2005 - its founders, the Zaal family, are certainly not. The family can trace its roots in the region back until the early nineteenth century.  Mohammed Zaal, the young CEO of Al Barari, is just the latest scion of the Zaal clan, and has just announced the latest addition to the community, the Nest. He is a graduate of the Royal Military College of Science at Cranfield University.
