Dubai Pearl, the futuristic city of the Gulf to be achieved in 2006

http://www.reedmidem.com/mipim/hotel...id_article=178

Construction work on Dubai Pearl, the US$850 million futuristic city, has started. To be completed in May 2006, the project will add some 1.2 million square feet of retail and leisure facilities to Dubai's shopping environment.


Two novel features of the township include the permanent indoor opera/theatre venue, the largest in the Middle East with a seating capacity of 1,800 and the Technoworld, a permanent showcase of the latest technology.

Dubai Pearl will feature three business hotels (some 1,500 hotel rooms and suites) : two four-star hotels and a luxury hotel. This 720-room five-star hotel will be a smart business hotel managed by the Swiss Mövenpick Group.

According to Omnix Group, developers of the project, Dubai Pearl is one of the largest construction projects in the world and will incorporate everything needed for a self-contained community. Located within the Dubai Media City Free Trade Zone, at the entrance of the new Palm Island development, Dubai Pearl connects the two main coastal roads and overlooks the sea and the surrounding residential and leisure areas.

The thing that really got my attention about this project is the scary network of roads and highways connected to it :P

While driving past dubai pearl towards Dubai Marina i see that there is a huge construction site but the has'nt been anything going on there for a long time. I peeked in the site and theres a huge hole (looked like a huge tower was going to be in plave) and there was no cranes or anything. The boarding said it was going to be a dubai islamic bank. has it been cancelled?
