Design work has now been finalised on HOK’s masterplan for a major urban community on the northeast outskirts of Al Ain. The challenge of the masterplan lay in establishing itself as a business and tourist alternative to Abu Dhabi and Dubai, while focusing on the city’s distinctive ethos of healthy living and proximity to nature.

The Al Ain masterplan is truly mixed use, comprising 30,000 apartments, 3,500 residential villas, 800,000 m2 retail and leisure facilities and 1,500,000 m2 office space as well as religious and public health amenities. In keeping with the city’s focus on healthy living, HOK was briefed to incorporate a sports stadium into the design, bringing together two of HOK’s numerous specialities.

Al Ain also known as the Garden City due to its greenery, is the second largest city in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the fourth largest city in the United Arab Emirates. With a population of 568,221 (2010), it is located approximately 160 km east of the capital Abu Dhabi and about 120 km south of Dubai.

Al-`Ain is the birthplace of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the first president of the United Arab Emirates, and it has the country’s highest number of Emirati nationals.

Al-`Ain is located in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, inland on the border with `Oman. The freeways connecting Al-`Ain, Abu Dhabi, and Dubai form a geographic triangle in the country, each city being roughly 130 kilometers from the other two.
