In a significant move aimed at fortifying social stability and enhancing the lives of Emirati citizens, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, the visionary ruler of Dubai, has given the green light to a series of ambitious housing projects as part of the Dubai Social Agenda 33.

The approved initiatives, revealed by the Emirates News Agency, encompass the allocation of 3,500 plots of land and the development of 2,300 ready-to-move-in houses, collectively valued at an impressive AED5.5 billion ($1.5 billion).


Sheikh Mohammed emphasized that the welfare of citizens, their families, and the overall social fabric are central to government plans and initiatives.

“At the heart of all our endeavors lie the citizens, their families, and the indispensable element of social stability,” Sheikh Mohammed stated, underscoring his commitment to prioritizing the well-being of Dubai’s residents.

He attributed the continued success of Dubai to a dedication to public welfare and the strategic utilization of available resources to create optimal conditions for work and creativity.

Dubbed Latifa City, the newly designated area for citizen housing holds a special significance, honoring the memory of Sheikh Mohammed’s mother, Sheikha Latifa bint Hamdan bin Zayed Al-Nahyan.

The housing plots, covering an expansive 40 million square feet, will be distributed to eligible Dubai residents in February. This distribution includes 2,700 plots in Latifa City and 800 plots in the Al-Yalayis 5 community.

The 2,300 new houses for citizens are strategically spread across Al-Khawaneej 2, Al-Aweer, Wadi Al-Amardi, and Hatta. Sheikh Mohammed’s commitment to enhancing the lives of citizens was further demonstrated in January with the launch of the AED208 billion Dubai Social Agenda program.


One of the primary objectives of this program is to double the number of Emirati families in the emirate within the next decade. Alongside this ambitious goal, plans were outlined to improve housing, healthcare, and the overall quality of life for citizens.

The Dubai Social Agenda represents a holistic approach to societal development, with a focus on providing citizens with not only housing but also access to essential services that contribute to their well-being.

Sheikh Mohammed’s vision extends beyond mere infrastructure, aiming to foster a sense of reassurance and hope for the future among the residents of Dubai.

The significance of these housing projects cannot be understated, as they align with the ruler’s unwavering commitment to social cohesion and citizen-centric development.

As the city continues to evolve, these initiatives serve as a testament to Dubai’s dedication to creating an environment that prioritizes the needs and aspirations of its residents, ensuring a thriving and harmonious community for years to come.
