Dubai - Architectural And Development Dreams Coming True

Jul 4, 2008
First it was China, who became the center of attention by starting some of the most amazingly designed architectural project. Now it is Dubai's turn to arrest the world's attention, with a vision to make it an ultimate destination for tourists from all over the world, backed by the power of petrodollar, Dubai is keen to achieve every landmark that exists in architectural world. Be it the tallest building, biggest shopping mall, largest hotel or biggest man-made islands. Every development going on in Dubai has a unique tag linked to it. Dubai is to architectures as Hollywood is to story tellers, giving the license to free your mind and come up with something out of this world. If you think this is an exaggeration, just have a look on some of the constructions going on in Dubai.

Palm Islands:
Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira, collectively known as "the palm islands" will be (when completed) the world's largest man made islands. Containing hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, apartments and commercial buildings, these islands will add more then 500km of land to Dubai's coastline.

Burj-ul-Arab:
Another landmark, this is the world tallest hotel till now ("Rose tower" is all set to take this distinctive position of being the world's tallest hotel, once it is open, and guess where is it located? Yes, you got it right, it is also in Dubai). Apart from being the tallest, Burj-ul-Arab is a spectacular building, often used as an iconic image for Dubai and deservedly so.

Dubai Mall:
This shopping mall, projected to be completed in 2008 will be the biggest shopping mall in the world. Visitors will find the world's largest gold souk, more than 1200 stores, a grand aquarium, top-notch Cineplex, Sega indoor theme park and much more.

The World:
A true master piece when it comes to the idea and its execution. "The world" is a set of 300 artificial islands, created in a way to look like the map of the world. For those who think that this is a far-fetched idea, the news is that more then 90% work of land reclamation has already been completed. If you want to invest in something really exclusive then "the world" is for you.

Arch Bridge:
An arch bridge, one mile long and 670 feet tall, the world's tallest and longest arch bridge is scheduled to be completed in 2012. The thing that is most surprising about this project is its estimated budget, said to be of $817 million. That's not a great deal for a bridge as large as this. A metro train service will also run through this bridge.

These are just few pickings, out of an array of truly magnificent developments going on in Dubai. There are many, many more on this list, once completed they will surely add to that old list of Seven Wonders of the World.
