The construction of Dubai Sustainable City is planned over 4 phases. According to Diamond Developers, the first batch of 100 villas and townhouses at the Dubai Sustainable City will be delivered by the end of 2014, while the final phase is expected to be complete by 2016.

After winning an international competition for the development of phase 2, Baharash Architecture will open an office in Dubai. Phase 2 will consist of a mixed-use zone, a mosque, the Institute for Ecological Engineering, a museum and planetarium, a “green” school, an eco-resort, a country club and an equestrian center.

The city will cover 46 hectares with 550 residential villas, organic farms, educational facilities, and 600,000 square feet of solar panels. Each house within the city will be equipped with solar panels, which will provide residents with 60 percent of their energy needs. The project will also feature a smart water system that will reduce the water demand of buildings by 30 percent. Grey and waste water will be used to irrigate plants across the city, and there will also be a waste recycling system and 20 organic farms.
