Look Forward To Some Outstanding Megaprojects Coming Up in Abu Dhabi and Dubai in 2019
There’s no repudiating that the continuing transformation of the UAE’s skyline is something extraordinary. It is applicable to those who prefer the country side to urban habitats. Starting from new entertainment districts to high-rising towers would again become famous and leave a trail in the Guinness World Records, while the evolution of the landscape continues quickly.
If anyone needs to be reminded of how the nation has developed, one can take a sneak-peak into the historical facts and data that dates back to the 1960s, when Abu Dhabi was just a collection of huts that encircled the palace, Qasr Al Hosn; whereas Dubai’s habitation hugged the creek.
The megaprojects that are coming up in the UAE’s Abu Dhabi and Dubai are listed below:
Dubai Creek Harbor
It perfectly falls under the ‘mega-project’ criteria. It’s almost twice the size of Downtown Dubai. Its flagship district is Creek island Dubai and will be the home to 33,000 residents. The first homes at Dubai Creek Harbor s going to be handed over in 2019. However, the centerpiece is The Tower, which is going to be even taller than Burj Khalifa to become the world’s tallest structure.
It’s going to be something special. The oval shaped tower will extend to 550m once finished in the heart of Dubai. The determining feature is the fingerprint of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, which will adorn the base.
Sahel Al Emarat
The Emirates’ very own Riviera was declared by developer Imkan last year. Nestled in Abu Dhabi’s Ghantoot nature reserve and close to the Dubai border, the first phase would present 293 small, “ranch-like”, villas and is due to be finished by 2021. The idea is for it to be a coastal retreat such as The Hamptons in New York.
This Meraas development, situated beside Palm Jumeirah, will consist of a lighthouse, restaurants, shops, luxury residences, cafés, and hotels. Meraas chairman Abdulla Al Habbai stated that it will be developed on Dubai’s historic seafaring traditions.
