Al Raha Gardens

Share on:

Al Raha Gardens is a mixed-use residential, commercial, leisure and retail development in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The vision for the development is that of a medium-sized village community with village-scale streets that afford residents the opportunity to socialise; fostering a sense of community, ownership and pride in their surroundings.

The site extends over 3km adjacent to the Dubai-Abu Dhabi motorway and neighbouring Al Raha Beach. Phase one consists of 750 residences including villas and town houses. Later phases will also incorporate apartments as well as community services, including three schools, a medical centre, retail, restaurants, supermarkets, offices, and convention and exhibition space. There will also be a medium-sized hotel and leisure complex, an equestrian centre, and a sports field for polo and other field sports.

GHD provided infrastructure master planning services, project approvals, detailed design and documentation for architecture, engineering and landscape design, pre-qualification of contractors and contract packaging, project management services and construction management for the development.

The development is intended to provide a highly attractive mixed-use area to cater for the growth of Abu Dhabi and offer a highly sought after exclusive lifestyle and commercial destination in close proximity to the city.
