The developer URB, will create 10, 000 new employment opportunities with the all-set Agri Hub, while promoting a green economy, greenlighting an innovative blueprint for decarbonized rural tourism hubs of the future. The typology of this green destination will provide the opportunity for the public to visit a farm for educational, recreational, or retail purposes.
The establishment will enhance its connectivity with direct bus services from major stations which is also planned to offer environmentally friendly transit systems such as 20 kilometres of dedicated cycling tracks.
The space will be a huge boost for local farmers with space for them to sell products directly from their farms to residents and visitors offering a new eco-friendly shopping, dining & edutainment experience.
The new hub will also seemingly feature a nature and heritage conservation centre, an ecotourism centre, an agri-tech institute and a restorative wellness centre, according to the reports. 100% renewable energy, 100% water recycling, bio-saline agriculture, green transit systems and onsite zero waste management will confer into the project’s environmental figures.
