Ghaf Woods ... more than 7,000 premium units.

Majid Al Futtaim, a key developer of communities, shopping malls, offices, and hotels in the region, has officially launched its newest development concept, Ghaf Woods, the first forest living community in the heart of Dubai.

Set to be released in eight phases between now and 2031, Ghaf Woods will cover 738,000 sq m of land off the Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Highway, near Global Village.

With more than 7,000 premium units set within a woodland, offering one, two or  three bedrooms, as well as penthouses, residents can expect perfect views of the forest ecosystem, said Majid Al Futtaim.

Speaking at the launch, Ahmed El Shamy, Majid Al Futtaim Properties’ CEO, said: “Ghaf Woods is more than just a new community – it’s the beginning of a new chapter in premium developments with creative and sustainable community design at its core and we are confident that its appeal will extend far beyond the UAE.”

According to him, the development is poised to redefine indoor-outdoor living, anchoring its world-class design and architecture in the surrounding natural environment.

“With a forest, made up of 35,000 trees, suitable to the local climate including the Ghaf, it will outnumber the number of residents,” he added.
