New Surrah City
CallisonRTKL planned a community-focused, mixed-use development for one of the oldest settlements in the UAE.
Umm al-Quwain, home of some of the oldest settlements in the United Arab Emirates, is known for its tremendous archaeological treasures, natural beauty, prosperous trade value and wonderful people. Building on these intrinsic values, New Surrah City is a planned, premier community, offering superior amenities, including gateway buildings for Umm al-Quwain, a lively mixed-use town center, hotels, diabetes research and recovery center, retail options, sporting club, family entertainment and various housing choices, all supported by civic and cultural facilities and major open spaces. These elements will link the entire community, creating a development where community is the top priority.
