Al-Noor Yemen

“Al- Noor Yemen” will be a globally integrated city challenging our intellectual expectations, commercial financing experiences, cultural limitations and religious barriers. A first of its kind, and a truly humanitarian effort with the goal of:

• Relieving poverty
• Creating equitable standards of living
• Satisfying basic needs of its inhabitants
• Establishing sustainable political practices
• Avoiding irreversible damages to nature
• Reconciling development with regenerative capacity of natural environment

Located in Yemen on the beachfront of the Gulf of Aden (Indian Ocean), the city aptly named
“Al-Noor Yemen” is based on a combination of leading-edge master planning and design, interwoven with Yemen history and cultural identity, to create a truly international city that would be the envy of any State or Nation.

“AL-Noor Yemen” will be unprecedented in size and sophistication, driven by a logistics infrastructure to be serviced by air, sea, rail, road and communications. Land transportation ports will be designed to cater to the needs of Yemen and the Middle East. The city is to provide global, physical and virtual connectivity between Africa, Europe and the Americas, as well as optimum efficiency for three sectors/markets that
between them integrate and create an added value nexus:

A Knowledge Hub:
A campus to leverage Yemen’s high educational competence to develop the provision of knowledge, learning and research, whilst capturing and maintaining high-caliber talent. It will include:

• Foundation centers (R&D)
• Higher education campuses
• College and vocational training facilities
• Medical and health centers and facilities
• Townships of knowledge

Industrial and Commercial Facilities:
These facilities are overlaid within the logistics infrastructure that enables business to receive global supplies, manufacture and then export. It supports and enhances businesses competing within the global marketplace that recognize they have no choice but to respond where there is a demonstrable improvement in efficiencies and profitability. It will include:

• Seaport
• Port city
• Business center
• Industrial center
• Industrial park
• Logistic city
• Airport and aviation city

Bridge of the Horns Structure:
Entrance to the Middle East and connecting to Africa with the importance of bringing people across. The first phase being a signature bridge spanning from Yemen to the island, extending deep into Yemen mainland to the airport. The second phase will extend the bridge to Africa at a length of 20 km. The bridge will serve over 100,000 cars and 50,000 rail-riders daily once operational. It will include:

• Commercial transportation path for exporting goods and services
• Rail service from Africa to Yemen mainland (airport)
• A walkway from Yemen to the island with a specialty railing

A Tourism and Leisure Center:
This center will enhance Yemen’s attractiveness and draw tourists throughout the year to undeveloped parts of the Mediterranean edge. It will include:

• Resort hotels
• Maritime museum
• Entertainment
• Art city
• Institutional zone
• City center

It is also essential that the proposed program initially address the laws and policies so that appropriate legal drafting can be introduced to propose required changes to the relevant and applicable laws of the city to make the above aspirations to become a reality.

15 Year Timeline

A 15-year master plan is being developed to illustrate the viability and efficiency of the City from inception to creation to its operation and maintenance.
