The development, set to be implemented in phases over a decade, will be built on the existing Mina Zayed port area, a prime real estate location on the capital's main island. The plans include hotels, residential districts and commercial and retail areas.

The conceptual masterplan has already been completed. A final decision on the relocation of the port has yet to be taken, although sites at Mussafah and Taweelah have been considered.
