World’s top attractions and the most momentous global real estate and infrastructure projects will all be gathered in Dubai. At the beginning of the year Dubai authorities have commented on which of these major projects will be completed, and which will be commenced in 2016.
Amazing project of a ‘framing’ for Dubai's futuristic landscape Dubai Frame is already 75% completed. This construction in the form of a giant frame in Zabeel Park with a height of 150 meters and a width of 93 meters will be completed in 2016. Dubai Frame will give a view of old and new Dubai: the center of the city with its dominants Emirates Towers and Burj Khalifa from the one side and Deira, Umm Harare and Karama areas from the other side.
No less interest is expected in respect of the three new huge theme parks dedicated to the gaming and film themes Motiongate Dubai, Legoland Dubai and Bollywood Parks Dubai. In October 2016 first visitors of the complex will be able to see and test first completed attractions at Bollywood Park, while other pavilions, including Hunger Games themed park, are planned for completion in the next few years.
All film industry latest products will also be available to visitors of 12-screen Novo Cinemas at IMG Worlds of Adventure planned for partial handover in 2016. It will also include retail and hospitality units together with dinosaur themed park and is positioned to become the largest indoor theme park in the world.
On the other hand, Dubai is just starting its basic preparations for the Expo 2020, that’s why a lot of new real estate projects, both residential and commercial, are planned to be launched in different parts of the emirate during 2016.
New tourist facility Taaj Arabia inspired by India’s Taj Mahal will be launched soon in 2016 and will be twice the size of the original, also having an unusual ‘moonlight glow’, the developer says. Tourists will be welcomed at a five-star hotel in the complex and those, who’d prefer to stay longer, will be able to buy one of the 300 apartments and serviced apartments at Taaj Arabia.
According to Dubai’s authorities’ development plans for the emirate, projects listed above are only a small part of what Dubai will see in the coming years. Therefore, 2016 will be another year of preparation and laying keystones for the Dubai real estate market’s stable future.
