The project is being developed in partnership with the Abu Dhabi Housing Authority (ADHA), and Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada), and Department of Municipal Affairs and Transport.

The redevelopment project is in accordance to the Plan Capital 2030 which entails redesigning selected areas in Abu Dhabi which includes Al Shamkha and Al Shawmekh neighborhood.  Al Shamkha and Al Shawamekh effortlessly fits with the objectives of UPC’s ‘Complete Sustainable Communities’ initiative to establish attractive, walkable areas that offer all of the essential facilities which people need easy access.

The Al Shamka Master Plan project covers a residential zone over five sectors in the greater Al Shamkha area. The adjacent Al Shawamekh area will receive a number of residential plots where a new two-sector neighborhood will be established.

The project entails construction of residential areas for UAE nationals, which comprises commercial spaces, schools, healthcare facilities, entertainment facilities, parks, pedestrian lanes, cycle tracks, and mosques. In addition, construction of police and civil defense facilities, university, and a gas station are also included in the project scope.

Infrastructure works in Al Shamkha and Al Shawamekh will kick off in the second quarter of 2016. The development will run 18 months to complete.

According to UPC, the project is dedicated to the Emirati families who need privacy, open spaces and leisure facilities.
