The sustainable city is a practical implementation of Social, Economic and Environmental sustainability. The city embodies the true meaning of sustainable living through stakeholder engagement, innovative design and future monitoring to sustain itself.
TSC comprises various land-uses such as residential, commercial, educational, urban farming, leisure, healthcare and The Diamond Innovation Centre.
These fitness and activity centers link to the community’s equestrian and cycle-way trails to form a 10-kilometre continuous network of recreational opportunities. The Sustainable City community swimming pool is at the very heart of the Central Green Spine, offering two ample pools – adult and separate children’s pool – temperature regulated and shaded. Although swimming pools are not considered to be particularly environmentally friendly, a community pool is required as part of a functioning community in the UAE and therefore has been added to the masterplan and takes into account as many sustainable elements as a pool can.
The Sustainable City comprises five residential clusters, housing a total of 500 villas. Connected to the Central Green Spine that runs the length of the City, each cluster comprises of 90 Courtyard Villas, 8 Garden and 2 Signature villas. Each cluster is named after a type of palm date tree – Lulu, Berhi, Hilali, Jabri and Khalas. The L-shaped two-storey villas combine ergonomic excellence with contemporary design to meet the highest environmental performance standards,without compromising on a charming living space. The third and top floor provides an ample roof terrace, much of which is shaded by the homes’ unobtrusive solar panels. This area is idyllic for entertaining and relaxing, particularly in Dubai’s winter months.
