Yeah we need a couple of these, we have shallow sea, which will ease work and lower cost ! and no concerns, since we have a sleepy sea, no major waves hitting Bahrain.

i think this project was postponed/canceled cuz it might get in the way of the arabian canal..
i mean doesn't the canal run from the waterfront into dubai then back into the sea close to the dubai marina?? (not really sure)
and the hotel is right behind the dubai marina... they're probably concerned that a yatch or boat might run over the hotel while trying to get into the canal..
that would be a pretty serious crash don't u think??

Is the Hydropolis exclusive enough to be part of the Waterfront?

this project still seems to be alive

i have the new german dubai magazine which once again reports about hydropolis and the architect

the whole project is german, only german companies are working on it

now we know why it takes so long


from what i read here, omg, this is top notch and will become one of the top 5 hotels in the world

it looks like there are some major changes:
the terminal building on the beach turns out to be a 70 storey residential tower including a hydrotherapy clinic

INSANE!
but it takes time

Did this get moved to the waterfront? If it did then it'll be quite a while before it starts construction.

i don't think it was moved
there was a german magazine on tv reporting about that, it was new , just 3 weeks old stuff. but it still seemed like this is in planning stage.

this project IMO will take the longest time to construct and may even be postponed a long time / cancelled.... now of COURSE "bubble city" will take the longest to build! lol.
