GROWING AGAIN

And again, and again into the sea. Dubai doesn't stop amazing the world with its luxury hotels and lifestyle. But also with the millionaire investments to make the country grow.

Seen from the air, the project resembles much as two palm trees, one in each side of the Burj Al Arab Hotel, the iconic hotel built over a glass artificial island.

Now, with an investment of 1,7 billion dollars, the Dubai Holding is ready to start the new project of building the Marsa Al Arab megaproject.

The project was announced by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and it will break ground in June 2017. The private islands over which construction will take place are already being built.

According to the numbers announced, Marsa Al Arab will spread across 371 thousand square metres (four million square-feet) and it will add 2,2 kilometres (1,4 miles) of beach to the Dubai coastline. Plus, it will be completed in a record time of two and a half years, in order to start working by late 2020.

One island will be dedicated to entertainment and family tourism, while the other will comprise an exclusive luxury resort.

The first island will include a marine park, a 1700 seat theatre and it will house 300 seafront apartments. The second one will be a private island and it will be host to 140 luxury villas, a private yacht marina for residents, a hotel, helipad and a convention centre.

According to the announcement, Wild Wadi Waterpark will be relocated closer to the beach, what will increase the park's size by more than twice.

In the end, Marsa Al Arab will add 2400 hotel rooms to the Jumeirah Group's portfolio reinforcing its leading position both locally and globally.

It will also boost job creation and provide a range of opportunities for UAE nationals in the tourism sector, as well as provide supporting foundations to host the 2020 Expo, to take place in Dubai.
