Dubai-based SEE Holding, was honored with prestigious accolades for its Sustainable City development at the International Property Awards 2024 in London UK.

With over two decades of experience in the industry of sustainability, SEE Holding focuses on designing, investing in, and building sustainable infrastructure and cities around the world.

The company received awards in two distinct categories: “Best Sustainable Residential Development” for The Sustainable City and “Best Public Service Development” for Sanad Village, underscoring its exceptional contributions to establish sustainable development in MENA.

Pioneered by SEE Holding, The Sustainable City is designed around the three pillars of sustainability: social, environmental, and economic. According to SHG, the city is achieving remarkable results with a 78% lower carbon footprint per capita, 89% waste diversion from landfills, and 40% less water consumption compared to regional averages.

The live-work-thrive community in Dubai is at full occupancy, with 3,000 residents from 65 nationalities enjoying life in the region’s first operational sustainable development. This concept is also being replicated in Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, and Yiti in Oman, with a plethora of additional projects in the pipeline around the globe.

Situated on Al Qudra Road and running over 46 hectares of land, this city is a huge mixed-use community embracing several sustainable concepts which claims to hold the title of being the ‘first net-zero energy city’ in Dubai.

The city’s design incorporates several sustainable features, including solar panels, car-free zones, and lush landscapes.

The Sustainable City boasts 500 villas, 10,000 trees, high-end amenities including The Sustainable Plaza, comprising five low-rise blocks which hosts a mix of retail shops, restaurants, apartments, and offices.

The Central Green Spine of the city features 11 bio-dome greenhouses, covering over 3,000 square metres for urban farming.

An urban BioDome Farm is a scientific approach to growing agriculture within an enclosed, controlled, and self-sufficient dome-like greenhouse ecosystem.

The spacious spherical, geodesic design interior closely replicates outdoor environments by providing natural filtered sunlight and optimal air flow.

By 2050, over 70% of the global population is projected to be urban dwellers. Urban biodomes allows a shift to food production from rural areas to cities, thereby reducing costs including fuel, cold storage logistics, and single use plastics during the transportation of perishable goods.

However, as for its own transport, the city does not have metro or bus stations. Residents typically rely on personal vehicles or transport apps in Dubai.

The city offers a variety of villas and townhouses with 3 to 5-bedroom layouts with typical 3-bedroom villas selling for an average of AED 3.5 million to 5-bedroom houses for around AED 11.9 million. According to the latest data, villas offer a projected ROI of 6.80%.

In addition to The Sustainable City, SEE Holding’s portfolio includes other companies such as Diamond Developers (which built TSC), City Solar, and Tadweer, alongside a wide range of other sustainability-focused revenue-generating entities.

Notes from the Editor: SEE Holding says it aims for a net zero emissions future by achieving the 2050 UN targets. It currently has projects in the UAE, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah and Oman. For more information, click here.
