Al Furjan in translation means a collection of houses or a small village. The first phase of the project which was launched in September 2007 sold out in its first week of launch. Once finished, Al Furjan will boast more than 4,000 homes within 560 hectares, sheltering, employing and entertaining some 90,000 people every day.
The project is designed to be made up of four villages facing East, South, West and North.
Developed by Nakheel, one of the world’s largest privately held property developers, the project is planned in two phases.
Phase one will be comprised of the South and East villages, while phase two will be facing North and West. Al Furjan’s latest launch was an outstanding success middle last month when the release (which included the architectural styles of Dubai, Quortaj and the newly released Al Hejaz) sold 800 terraced houses and villas within days.
