Dubai developer Nakheel has unveiled Jebel Ali Gardens, a new community providing accommodation for more than 40,000 people.
The new master developed project will comprise nearly 10,000 apartments in 42 buildings, set among landscaped gardens with pools and sports facilities, Nakheel said.
Apartments range from one to three bedrooms, and each building will also have ground floor retail space.
The project, which will also feature three mosques accommodating a total of 3,000 people, is set on a 5.5 million square foot site with a built-up area of more than 19 million sq ft, the developer said in a statement.
Jebel Ali Gardens will include over 1.1 million sq ft of green, landscaped parks - around one fifth of the site area - which will also feature a 2km jogging track, swimming pools, football fields and tennis and basketball courts.
The project is one of a growing number of developments in Nakheel 's residential and retail leasing portfolio, a key focus of the company's business strategy.
