More than 400 villas are planned for UAE nationals in a beachfront community development in Al Gharbia, the Western Region of Abu Dhabi emirate.

The residential neighbourhood in Mirfa Beach, which lies on a stretch of coastline 160km west of Abu Dhabi City, will be a complete sustainable community offering a wide range of amenities including parks, shops, mosques and a public corniche.

The Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC) devised the Mirfa Beach Master Plan, which includes 410 villas and all of the infrastructure and community facilities, news agency WAM reported.

The project will be built by Abu Dhabi General Services Company, working in coordination with the Abu Dhabi Housing Authority.

"Mirfa Beach is a significant project for both Al Gharbia, the UPC and its partners for implementation," said Abdulla Al Sahi, acting executive director, planning and infrastructure sector, UPC.

"Mirfa Beach is an important step in the progress of Plan Al Gharbia 2030 and the future of the region as a whole. It is also an example of the strong working partnership between various organisations to improve the quality of life for Al Gharbia’s residents, in line with their needs and expectations," he added.

Mirfa is one of seven settlements of Al Gharbia included within Plan Al Gharbia 2030, joining Madinat Zayed, Liwa, Delma, Ghayathi, Sila’a and Ruwais.

With multiple projects under construction across the region, including the highly anticipated Etihad Rail line, Al Gharbia is fast becoming a hub for a diverse number of sectors, including tourism, oil and gas and freight transportation.
