Looks amazing, good artist
Add some green grass and all bridges in Dubai could prime relaxing areas with a perfect sunshade.

Yeah I love the idea. Making your city a great place for tourists to visit is not just about the big attractions but also about all the little things that add a little bit of prettiness across the city.

These kinds of things are what makes Instagram selfie backgrounds these days, which is a huge tool for promotion in our time.

Hyatt Hotels to expand footprint in GCC

Quote:


Dubai: Hyatt Hotels and Resorts said it is expanding its geographical footprint across the region, with plans to open three hotels in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) by the end of this year or early next year.
The US-based hotel operator is also planning to expand strongly in Saudi Arabia, and is expected to open at least eight properties there over the next four years.
“We’ll have our first property at Palm Jumeirah island (in Dubai). Hopefully, we’ll open by the end of this year or first quarter next year, and it will be a Hyatt Centric property. It’s going to be the first Centric in the Middle East, and the second one will be next year in Doha, Qatar,” said Tareq Daoud, Hyatt’s regional vice-president for sales for the Middle East and Africa.
He added, “Another project we have is the Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi, 450-plus room hotel and residence. Again, this will hopefully open end of this year or first quarter 2018.”
In Dubai, Hyatt will also open a four-star property in Deira also by the end of this year. This comes amid stronger demand for more affordable hotels in the UAE as that segment of the market has traditionally been underserved.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Arabian Travel Market (ATM), an annual hospitality and aviation event, Daoud said he was not concerned about an oversupply of hotel rooms in the UAE as he expected demand to rise over the next few years aided by the Expo 2020.
Average room rates across the country have been on the decline over the past year due to a slowdown in demand as well as an increase in the supply of new hotels.
Asked about hotel performance in the UAE during the first quarter of 2017, Daoud said, “No one can deny the challenges the market faced in the last couple of years in room rates and the number of visitors, but in the first quarter we noticed a bit of growth in the number of visitors and number of room night bookings compared to the same period last year.”
In Saudi Arabia, Hyatt recently opened a property in Riyadh, and will be opening another one, a Hyatt Place hotel, in the city by the end of this year. It also has two projects under construction in Riyadh.
“We have strong expansion plans in Saudi Arabia. In Jeddah, we have three properties under construction. One of them is Hyatt Regency, one is a Grand Hyatt, and the other is Hyatt Place, the selected services (four-star) brand,” Daoud said.
Additionally, Hyatt is expected to open Hyatt Place properties in Mekkah, and one hotel in Al Khobar. Elsewhere in the GCC, the chain will open two properties in Qatar, and one in Kuwait (planned for 2019).
“Now, we have almost 700 properties around the world. Our target in three years is to have 1,000 properties,” Daoud said.

DUBAI

The $100 million (Dh367 million) renovation of the Atlantis hotel on The Palm is set to start on July 2, according to a senior official at the company.

“The renovation of our rooms will begin on July 2, and starting this year also, we will be renovating some of the bars and restaurants. This will last for three years,” said Serge Zaalof, Chief Operating Officer of the Atlantis.

The timescale is intended to align the original Atlantis, which opened in 2008, with the new $1.4 billion Royal Atlantis, set to open in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Zaalof confirmed that four banks, including Emirates NBD, who shares its parent company with the Atlantis, were funding the project.

Occupancy at the Atlantis on The Palm was up 16 per cent in April year on year, and the company is aiming for 90 per cent occupancy this year.

“The Palm is eating up market share from the beach hotels, and the two new malls that are coming will be great for us too, as people won’t have to leave The Palm to go shopping,” Zaalof said.

The COO also stated in an interview with Gulf News that the company was considering opening smaller properties elsewhere in the GCC, and eyeing locations like Mexico and Bali for further expansion.

These smaller hotels would have as few as 550 rooms, compared to the 1300 rooms the hotel will open on Hainan Island, China at the end of 2017, for example.

“We’re considering opening a smaller Atlantis, between 600 and 800 rooms, because if you’re talking about an investment of $1.4 billion, not everyone can afford that. We want to give owners who love the brand the possibility to own an Atlantis,” Zaalof said.

Zaalof confirmed that the company had no intention of spinning these new hotels off in to a separate brand.

“We would absolutely keep it as Atlantis. The brand is successful, well recognised, and as long as you provide the same experience, and the same water theme, it’s fine,” he said.

When asked if the company would consider opening in Abu Dhabi, Zaalof responded: “we would never say no to opening a smaller Atlantis in Abu Dhabi, or elsewhere in the GCC.”

He also confirmed that the Atlantis was looking at other regions for future expansion.

“We are looking at India, Asia, South America very much so, Cancun, Bali, Phuket,” Zaalof said.

The famously large hotels will be constrained in markets such as Bali and Cancun, where height restrictions on buildings apply.

In Bali, a building cannot be higher than a coconut tree, roughly 15 metres. This law was confirmed by the House of Representatives in 2009. The Atlantis in Dubai stands at 93 metres.

“There is no limit for Atlantis, except the water theme” Zaalof said, adding: “we would even consider building a resort in Antarctica. Why not?”

Nakheel awards AED1.5 billion contract to build The Palm Gateway triple tower and beach complex


Saturday, May 13, 2017
Dubai master developer Nakheel has signed a construction contract worth nearly AED1.5 billion for The Palm Gateway, a new, three-tower residential, retail and beach club complex at the foot of the world-famous Palm Jumeirah.

Nakheel has appointed Shapoorji Pallonji Mideast LLC to carry out the work, which will begin in Q2 2017 and take two and a half years to complete.

Nakheel Chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said: “The Palm Gateway contract is among AED12 billion worth of construction contracts to be awarded by Nakheel this year. We look forward to delivering another iconic, landmark project at the entrance to Palm Jumeirah through this first-time collaboration with Shapoorji Pallonji.”

Shapoorji Pallonji Mideast LLC, part of the Shapoorji Pallonji Group, has been active in the region for the over 45 years, delivering a range of prestigious projects. M. D. Saini, Managing Director and CEO, Shapoorji Pallonji International FZE, said: We are honoured and excited to have been selected to deliver this prestigious project.”

The Palm Gateway includes 1,265 luxury apartments across three high-rise buildings – the tallest topping 285 metres – to be constructed on top of the existing Palm Monorail terminal, which includes 14 levels of parking spaces. Units range from one to three bedrooms and will be available on lease.

The waterfront living and leisure complex, set in extensively-landscaped grounds, will also have an abundance of retail, dining and health and fitness facilities, including parks, pools, and sports courts.

The Palm Gateway will boast convenient transport links to other parts of the island and to the rest of Dubai. The Palm Monorail, which will remain operational throughout the construction of the project, is already connected to the Dubai Tram and the Dubai Metro, giving residents and visitors easy access to alternatives to the car.

With panoramic views of Palm Jumeirah, the Arabian Gulf and some of Dubai’s most famous landmarks, The Palm Gateway will also have its own beach club and park – a shaded, landscaped complex with a diverse range of waterfront dining and shopping options, pool, barbecue areas and fitness facilities, including a jogging track.

The Palm Gateway is one of a number of new projects in Nakheel’s growing residential leasing portfolio, which is set to double to more than 35,000 units, with other new developments coming to Palm Jumeirah, Warsan Village, Jebel Ali Village, Dragon City, Ibn Battuta Mall and Nad Al Sheba.

The Palm Gateway is one of three high rise developments by Nakheel on Palm Jumeirah. The Palm Tower, a 52-storey luxury hotel and residential complex at the centre of the island is under construction, while PALM 360, a 220 metre twin-tower penthouse, apartment and hotel complex, is currently being designed.

The Palm Gateway at a glance:

- A trio of towers comprising 1,265 apartments and duplexes for lease


- 5.5 million sq ft gross floor areaTubular Tower (285 metres, 59 floors including 44 above podium level); Central Tower (205 metres, 48 floors


- including 33 above podium); Beach Tower (206 metres, 48 floors including 33 above podium)


32 beach-facing apartments and 16 duplexes in existing 14-storey Gateway building


- Almost 4,000 parking spaces


- 15th floor landscaped podium deck with pool, sports courts and 8,600 sq ft of retail space


- Beach club with kiosks and restaurants


- Gym, spa, pools, sports courts and jogging track


- Supermarket and food court within podium building


- Palm Monorail onsite


- Extensive views of Palm Jumeirah, the Arabian Gulf and the Dubai skyline

I've heard there is a school plot on the Palm.

Does anybody know where is it located?

Being a palm resident, the only thing missing now is a school!!!
