Work on Dubai’s first sustainable city is expected to start in July. The Dubai Sustainable City will include villas, townhouses, a university, commercial center, shopping mall, tourist attractions and a sustainable hotel and resort. "The mixed-used project will have a car-free zone and solar-powered golf carts for each house," said Faris Saeed, chief executive of Diamond Developers. "The green initiatives at the development will not only help reduce carbon emissions, but also save energy through insulated walls at villas and townhouses."
