Dubai often cited as the tourism capital of the UAE, has shown no signs of letting up on its perpetual quest to create new and beautiful attractions. A perfect example of this would be the artificial archipelago of the Palm Jumeirah and what the future holds for this already popular travel destination.
While Dubai’s archipelago is full of iconic buildings and lavish Palm Jumeirah hotel and resort buildings – for example, Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort – there’s a host of new building projects that are already underway. There’s the Ain Dubai, which is set to be the world’s largest Ferris wheel, and the futuristic Cityland Mall, with over 75 restaurants and 12 movie screens!
The Dubai Renaissance
The Dubai Renaissance is a project that aims to change the country’s prevailing design ideology – creating grandiose construction works that exude splendour while foregoing logic and practicality. Essentially, the project aims to reform the country’s architectural and engineering practices to focus on performance and functionality.
Expected to pull in over 3 million visitors every year, Bluewater Island is being constructed just a short walk away from Jumeirah Beach. The area is expected to be a hub for entertainment and luxury living, with a litany of restaurants, cafes, hotels, and resorts all set to open at the location.
The Dubai Autonomous Transport Strategy plans to convert up to a quarter of Dubai’s transportation services into an autonomous state by 2030. Extending well beyond the Palm Jumeirah, this project is expected to help transform Dubai into a truly smart city!
