Introduction to iLand

The diverse uses of iLand City such as attractive and unique sports-recreational complexes, shopping centers, tourist facilities, beautiful promenades, and urban neighborhoods with different classic and modern themes have been defined and designed in 24 projects by 5 holdings and 24 affiliated companies.

iLand is honored to be the first and the largest multipurpose complex in Iran. One of the core features of this complex is the synergy caused by the placement of these facilities in a single complex and connections to locate different projects in the vicinity of each other.

  • International-grade tourist zone (approved by the Cabinet of Iran),
  • Top-grade tourism town (approved by the Supreme Council for Urbanism and Architecture), and
  • Special economic zone (approved by the Islamic Consultative Assembly and officially notified by the Cabinet of Iran).

This town has been defined as a destination for living, recreation, sports, working, education, and health in an organic way in order to shape an ideal lifestyle.
