On the adjacent territory to the residential complex is planned to arrange a city park and recreation area. The total area of the park will be more than 10 hectares. "On the territory of the projected residential complex, it is planned to place social infrastructure facilities: a kindergarten and a development center, a sports center with a swimming pool, shops, a cafe with a bakery, a pharmacy, a bank branch and service departments," the project presentation says.
In addition, company "Archiline" sells in Dubai residential complex "Archiline-2", which involves the construction of 72 individual cottages from glued beams with an area of 300 to 400 sq.m. Within the project it is planned to build 143 combined townhouses. These are semi-detached houses with an area of 250 sq. M. meters, where the second and mansard floors are also made of glued beams, explained in the company "Archiline". The complex is built on an area of 37.5 hectares.

"To date, there is an active preparation for the construction of the first phase of the quarter - 4 apartment buildings, 143 townhouses, 40 cottages." The first phase will be put into operation in the second half of 2018, explained representative of company Archilne. The whole complex will be built in 2019, the total investment is more than 135 million dollars. The company added that wooden construction is not cheaper than a block, but wooden houses are more environmentally friendly.
The general director of the company, Archiline Pavel Chernikov, noted that wooden villages of urban type with three-four-story houses are very popular in Europe, for example, in Sweden and Finland. "Europeans consider them a more favorable place to live," he said, "and in Austria, for example, it is customary to build kindergartens only of wood."
According to the expert, the tree in some way is considered more fire resistant than concrete and metal, as the glued timber structure keeps the bearing capacity longer and allows people to leave the room during a fire. "If the wooden houses are close to each other, they are protected by non-combustible fiber cement slabs," Chernikov stressed.
The expert added that for the construction of country houses usually use glued beam, and for permanent residence use frame-panel construction. Construction of a wooden house, without taking into account the cost of land and communications, costs the developer in the amount of 25 thousand rubles per square meter. This is either comparable, or up to 20% cheaper than a house made of metal structures, depending on the complexity of the order, added Pavel Chernikov.
