Majid Al Futtaim launches Forest Living Community in Dubai

Dubai, UAE - Majid Al Futtaim has announced the official launch of Ghaf Woods, an innovative forest living community concept in Dubai. This development, first introduced at MIPIM 2024, an international real estate event in Cannes, France, promises to redefine residential living in the region.

Ahmed El Shamy, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim Properties, emphasized the significance of launching Ghaf Woods. He stated, "This moment marks a pivotal point for Majid Al Futtaim as we embark on our fourth decade of delivering exceptional experiences to our customers, partners, and communities. The launch represents a re-founding moment, allowing us to create something unprecedented, provide residents with a unique living experience, and reinforce our role as lifestyle innovators in the region."

Majid Al Futtaim's Ghaf Woods represents a groundbreaking step in sustainable urban living, providing a unique blend of luxury, nature, and wellness. As the company continues to innovate and lead in lifestyle developments, Ghaf Woods stands as a testament to its commitment to creating exceptional living environments that cater to the needs and aspirations of modern residents.

A Sustainable Haven in the Heart of Dubai

Ghaf Woods will span 738,000 square metres of land, strategically located off the Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Highway, near Global Village. This ambitious project will feature over 7,000 premium residential units nestled within a lush woodland environment, providing residents with unparalleled views of a thriving forest ecosystem.

The forest itself will host 35,000 trees, playing a crucial role in reducing soil erosion, conserving water, and moderating temperatures. Moreover, this green sanctuary will significantly enhance air quality by filtering pollutants and greenhouse gases, effectively acting as a 'Green Lung' that offers up to 20% cleaner air than other urban developments.

Exceptional Open Spaces and Biodiversity

Ghaf Woods boasts an expansive open space ratio that surpasses World Health Organization (WHO) standards, offering 15 square metres of open space per resident, compared to the WHO's recommendation of 10 square metres. The community will also be home to over 20 species of birds, further enriching its biodiversity.

Residents will enjoy a variety of health, wellness, and recreational facilities, including eight kilometres of walking trails, a three-and-a-half-kilometre biking loop, and resort-style pools set within forested surroundings. These amenities are designed to promote a healthy, active lifestyle while allowing residents to immerse themselves in nature.
