11 Things You’ll Love About The Sustainable City Dubai

Imagine a life where community farms fuel your family dinners, car-free zones encourage active living and energy bills are nice to look at… for once. While it may sound like a utopian ideal, Diamond Developers, with their exclusive sales and leasing partner Gulf Sotheby’s International Realty, have already made sustainable living a reality here in Dubai.

Located in Dubailand just a short drive from Downtown, The Sustainable City is a new residential district giving us more than just a glimpse into the eco-friendly future.

You’ll find farms for all your organic produce

The Sustainable City boasts 11 bio-dome greenhouses that encourage urban agriculture; residents can get involved in the community farms and enjoy baskets of fresh produce year-round. They even get their own plot where they can grow what they like!)

There’s an equestrian centre and horse track

Feel like really horsing around on the weekends?! Fully fitted with stables, a training facility and a 4km dirt trail circling the perimeter of the development, The Sustainable City is fully equipped to allow residents to enjoy a ride surrounded by gorgeous green landscapes at every turn.

Sustainable City Dubai has great community vibes

Forget about spending the day at the mall. From movie screenings to carnivals for the little ones, Sustainable City is big on bringing the neighbours together. With proactive onsite community managers and a highly active social calendar packed with family-friendly events, we’re absolutely loving the close-knit vibes here.

There are SO many ways to enjoy the great outdoors

With so much greenery, trees and even a lake with resident ducks, Sustainable City is a true desert oasis. With an emphasis on outdoor living at every turn, the community prioritises active lifestyles for residents and visitors alike. We’re talking a 6 km running track, 4 km cycle track, 4 km horse trail, outdoor gym stations, tennis courts and even a 5 a-side football pitch.

The community boasts car-free zones (seriously!)

One of the stand-out features about living here is that each of the development’s five residential clusters is a designated car-free zone. This type of set-up really changes the atmosphere of the neighbourhood, and makes it much safer for kids to enjoy outdoor activities. Residents can park their vehicles in designated car parks andhop onto an electric buggy to get around. Don’t fancy waiting around for your buggy ride? You can book ahead using their app; we love it!

There are plenty of retail options to choose from

Opening in just a few months, The Plaza is going to be the hub of the community with a range of shops and restaurants on offer. From a hair salon and pet medical clinic to dry cleaners and a range of tasty dining outlets, residents will have everything they need available on their doorstep.

The energy efficient villas will save you cash

Nobody looks forward to monthly bills, but living in The Sustainable City is sure to leave you (and your wallet) smiling. Each of the 500 villas is equipped with solar roof panels. The water recycling system and building features also ensure homes remain energy efficient. This adds up to a zero net service charge and up to 50% lower energy bills than the rest of Dubai. It’s good for the planet and your pocket!

The best is yet to come…

The Sustainable City has some really exciting developments planned over the next 18 months; here’s what we’re looking forward to seeing:

  • Hotel Indigo (part of the InterContinental Hotels Group) which will be the first 100% solar-powered hotel in the world
  • A Sustainable Country Club with a range of fitness and recreational facilities
  • A sustainable school with priority admission for residents
  • The Diamond Innovation Centre which will be a major hub for sustainability in the region
