Elan features walkable neighbourhoods flanked by evergreen Ghaf trees.

Majid Al Futtaim, a leading shopping mall, communities, retail and leisure pioneer across the Middle East, Africa and Asia, says work has begun on its Elan neighbourhood at Tilal Al Ghaf, the landmark lifestyle destination by Majid Al Futtaim Communities in Dubai.

Located at the junction of Hessa Street and Sheikh Zayed Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street, with a lagoon and white sandy beaches at its heart, Tilal Al Ghaf balances luxury resort-style living with a fresh urban feeling. The first homes in Elan will be delivered in phases starting from December next year.

UNEC is the  contractor on the project, while the consultant is  Arif & Bintoak Consulting Architects and Engineers.

The contract for the first three phases of Elan comprising a total of 916 premium three- and four-bedroom townhouses is valued at almost AED583 million ($159 million).

On the project work, Majid Al Futtaim Communities CEO Hawazen Esber says: “Elan’s success underlines our market expertise, our responsiveness, and our commitment to delivering the right products at the right time to the highest international and local standards and design.”

“Staying true to Majid Al Futtaim’s commitment to sustainable design and living, the community features walkable neighbourhoods connected by a meticulously crafted network of green spaces, pathways, cycling tracks and jogging trails flanked by evergreen Ghaf trees which are indigenous to the UAE and lend the development its name,” he adds.
