The town is intended to provide residence for the staffs of Imam Khomeini International Airport, create a balance in the settlement pattern of Tehran, establish an appropriate environment to draw in the extra population of Tehran and offer an alternative to unsystematic settlements. Parand is expected to accommodate 80,000 citizens across 1,467 hectares.

It is divided into a number of areas namely an urban texture, greenery, town services, regional services and industrial district. These areas are planned to develop in 3 stages.
