Abstract: This research investigates the impact of Building heights and unified building form over the microclimate variables within a residential community located in Dubai . The research begins by conducting a literature review to establish a profound base in which this research can develop by analyzing and understanding similar cases for other researchers that tackles similar subject. The research set number of questions in which the answer to those questions would contribute to the ongoing research that focus on sustainable practice in United Arab Emirates on an individual building scale and master urban scale. Since the national agenda and UAE Vision 2021 sets the goal of being a regional and international role model for sustainable Urban development revolution that responds to the United nation Goals and ensure prosperity for future generations The research selected one of Mohammad Bin Rashid housing establishments in Dubai located in Oud Muteena district on the border line with Sharjah at a residential area with low rise buildings since building standard at theses area allows Ground plus one floor only for residential individual unites called ( villas ) in local terminology. The aim of the research is to investigate the potential impact of height increase and using unified layout design for all unites within the site on outdoor microclimate condition at the community, This is to contribute to the United nation goal of Sustainable Development as well as UAE Vision 2021 for sustainable society. Research methodology uses field visit and observation beside Literature review to build the base of the research and validate input data that are used in computer simulation program for virtual model analysis where different scenarios are proposed for each parameter in order to evaluate and understand the impact of these parameters and conclude with scientific prove recommendations to enhance sustainability within housing communities in Dubai.
