The master plan proposes an organized city with components arranged in a way that ensures comfortable living within a single neighborhood. It caters to family living, with high-end commercial, residential, and entertainment districts all within a short distance of the main source of employment—the UAE Civil Nuclear Power Program. Connected along the natural waterfront, each district features pedestrian paths that feed toward the sea, where residents can enjoy a variety of aquatic sports along a vibrant boardwalk.
