Two of the United Arab Emirates’ most prolific developers, Emaar Properties and Aldar Properties, are teaming up.

Through a recently-announced $8.2 billion joint venture the developers will spearhead two mixed-use waterfront projects — one in Dubai, one in Abu Dhabi — with a combined total of almost 10,000 residential units, according to Reuters. Details of other projects were not released.

Dubai-based Emaar and Abu Dhabi-based Aldar both are linked to their respective ruling governments; the emirates of Dubai and Abu Dhabi in turn lead the federated country, which is made up of a total of seven emirates. Reuters reports prices for residential property in the UAE have fallen in recent years with no expectation of upcoming change due to oversupply.

Emaar and Aldar are responsible for headline-grabbing developments, which respectively include the world’s tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa, and the Yas Marina Circuit, where Formula One races are held. [Reuters]Erin Hudson
