All You Need to Know About Dubai’s Man Made Island
Dubai has the tallest building in the world (Burj Khalifa at 2,717 feet), the largest indoor theme park in the world, and soon the world’s first rotating skyscrapers, but the most impressive are artificial islands cities, all in various stages of completion: Palm Jumeirah, Deira, Palms Jebel Ali, Bluewaters World and Iceland.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Emir of Dubai, is the main reason behind these large-scale projects, which will boost tourism and extend the Dubai coast.
How did the islands do? A process called land reclamation with sand from the Persian and Arab troops. The sand is then sprayed and “compacted on the path of using precision GPS technology and surrounded by millions of rock for protection.”
The Palm Islands: Palm Jumeirah and Palm Jebel Ali
Perhaps the most famous of the pile, Palm Jumeirah is shaped like a palm that consists of a stem and 17 leaves and is contiguous from approximately seven miles of increasing length on the island of Atlantis, The Palm (just one of many hotels and resorts Archipelago). The project began in 2001 at Nakheel Properties and eventually added 40 miles of much-needed beaches.
Today, travelers can reach the Palm Jumeirah via a monorail to mainland Dubai and an underwater tunnel connecting the topmost sheet in the Crescent. Premieres alongside the Palm Jumeirah including The Palm Tower, with floors occupied by St. Regis Dubai and Nakheel Mall, which opened in 2018 and the end of 2017 There is no need to settle for Google Earth Pictures: Admire the work up to over 120 km / h by sea-flying.
Work on the Palm Island Palm, Palm Jebel Ali, began in 2002, but due to the financial crisis of 2008, the building was stopped. Nakheel is convinced by journalists that Jebel Ali has not been canceled but is a “long-term project.”
When and when the island is finished, it will be 50 percent larger than the Palm Jumeirah and will contain houses built on poles, water parks, mansions, six marinas, and foothills, framed in a music letter from Sheikh Mohammed herself.
The idea of the third palm island, Palm Deira, which doubles eight times the size of the Palm Jumeirah, was introduced in 2004. However, Nakheel switched gears in 2013 and renamed the project in Deira Islands, accusing him of creating four smaller artificial islands. The premiere debut of Deira, Night Souk, is the largest (of course) night market in the world with over 5,000 stores and nearly 100 restaurants and cafes.
If shopping in-country is more than your style during your vacation in the UAE, the Deira Mall, with its retractable roof atrium and over 1,000 stores, may just be a paradise. The mall will serve as a central part of Deira Island Boulevard, which has retail space and at least 16 residential towers. By 2020, I hope that two of the four islands with 250,000 inhabitants will be developed and completed. world
The World (the second Nakheel project) started in 2003 and consisted of 300 small islets built on the world map. Another victim of the financial crisis in 2008, the progress of the world has stopped. Until 2013, only Greenland and Lebanon developed, and unfortunately, NASA suggested that these islands return to the ocean.
Despite this erosion, the developer Kleindienst Group hopes to revive the world with the launch of the heart of Europe by 2020 in an excellent way. The six islands of Kleindienst complete the project, each of which offers a (very high) number of visitors. Along with underwater villages (so-called “floating horses”), five-star hotels and even snow-covered roads. The heart-shaped island of St. Petersburg promises to be the first world of honeymoon. Blue Waters
By running Nakheel for his money, Meraas Holdings started his Bluewaters project, which started in 2013. If London opens in late 2018 or early 2019 with Ain Dubai, this London Eye will be a shame – you’ll think it’s the biggest in the world – Bluewaters wants to become Dubai’s famous tourist destination. The island is zoned with more than 200 retail options and restaurants, resorts and townhouses, and beachfront hotels.
Man Made Island – Burj Al Arab
Did you know that one of the most beautiful buildings in Dubai is located on an artificial island? The Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, located 1,053 feet (just below the Empire State Building), supports 250 columns of submerged sand. The Burj was completed in 1999 and spans two full years to return to its land. It has a private beach for its guests, its heliport and a new outdoor deck on the other side of the ocean where an island is located.
