Jubail Point is a waterside development centrally located on Jubail Island in Abu Dhabi. The site is in a nature reserve with mangroves but is less then 10km away from centre of Abu Dhabi. The Jubail Island masterplan consists of several villages one of which is Jubail Point. The development will provide high end second homes catering mainly for Abu Dhabi residents.
The scheme has been developed as distinct clusters with good privacy and shared amenities.The existing Jubail Point Masterplan is set in a nature reserve and provides a mix of uses from private villas to a hotel, retail space, civic functions including a community centre and mosque. The residential scheme consists of large villa.The masterplan also incorporates green strips with mangroves which run through the scheme around which is placed the residential development.
Although the masterplan has generally been successful in terms of the layout of the villas, our main concerns is related to the public realm and in particular the separation of the Marina from the Civic Functions. These issues have been addressed in the two options we have considered both of which help create a ‘community cluster’.
