Dubai: Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, and Chairman of the Higher Committee for Development and Citizens Affairs, today reviewed the progress of a housing project being developed for citizens in Al Khawaneej 2.

During the visit, he said that ensuring the familial stability of citizens, providing them with decent living conditions and enhancing their well-being are among the top priorities of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. “The housing programme for citizens is under my direct supervision, and we aim to establish unique residential communities designed to bring comfort and happiness to Emirati families,” he said.

Richly adorned with vast green spaces and open expanses, the project ensures residents can move around safely and conveniently without relying on vehicles. The area’s design features visually appealing entrances, shaded pathways adorned with trees, and a variety of public amenities to enrich community life.
