The master plan for the island, revealed last year, calls for a “low-density, low-rise, mixed-use development” featuring 15 neighbourhoods.

Up to 33,000 people are expected to live on Lulu. About 80 per cent of development is expected to be residential, with amenities including schools, mosques, police stations and shops.
