The Dubai Waterfront, in one word, is awe-inspiring. The magnitude of the vision that inspired this project can be called anything but genius and the perfection with which it has been executed leaves the viewers breathless. The artificial islands of the waterfront have been designed to resemble the most widely recognized symbol of Islam, the star, and the crescent. This would produce a shelter around the Palm Jebel Ali, one of the three Palm Islands, the largest artificial islands in the world also constructed by Nakheel.
Located near the Al Maktoum International Airport and with direct access to the busy Sheikh Zayed Road, Jebel Ali Freezone and Abu Dhabi, the Dubai Waterfront has a very strategic location and would be fully accessible on a local and international scale.
The vision behind Dubai Waterfront is to create a world-class destination for residents, visitors, and businesses in the world’s fastest-growing city. This ambitious development is organized around key components of the master plan, encompassing a new downtown, Madinat Al Arab, which is anchored by Al Burj – one of the world’s tallest buildings.
Surrounding the harbour is a series of zones with mixed-use, commercial, residential, resort, and amenity areas. Together they form the symbol of Dubai’s meteoric rise and the grand intent of this truly unprecedented master plan.
