Khavaran is an under-construction residential borough situated in the city of Tabriz and in the jurisdiction of the District 9 Submunicipality. The borough will be considered the most modern Iranian residential borough.[1]

Beginning of construction[edit]

About twenty years after acquiring the lands of the Khavaran borough,[2] construction of the borough began officially on December 6, 2010.[3]

Mass constructors of the chamber of commerce of Antalya Province, Turkey have also announced their willingness to invest in the borough.[4]


The predicted population for habitation in the Khavaran borough is 160 thousand people and its area is announced 820 hectares. The construction pattern of the Khavaran borough is different from the general texture of the city of Tabriz; and the residential units will be founded in sizes bigger than 320 meters as villas. The Tehran-Tabriz Freeway will also pass beside the borough.[5]

For the first time in Iran, a common tunnel will be founded for the uses of the water supply, electricity, gas and telecommunication companies in the Khavaran borough.[6]

While the number of the floors is determined by the width of passage, parking supply and open space in the city of Tabriz, the number of the floors of a building is determined by the areas of the sectors in the Khavaran borough. Meanwhile, there is no passage shorter than 12 meters in the borough.[7]

With an area of 820 hectares, the borough connects to the Basmenj road in the north, the Tabriz-Tehran Highway in the south, the Zarnaq road in the east and the Kasayi and Payambar-e Aazam Freeways in the west. The Khavaran borough consists of 350 hectares the Khavaran borough itself, 320 hectares of Azaran and 120 hectares the white spot (the Fathabad lands); and the village of Fathabad itself is situated inside the borough and is part of the Municipal District 9 domain.[7]
