New projects approved:

The Hatta Housing Project, aimed at providing housing for citizens was approved by Sheikh Mohammed last year after a tour to the project site. According to the approved plan, total of 302 housing plots will be built encompassing the most advanced services and facilities combining both modern and traditional values in tune with the natural characteristics of the Hatta area.


The Sewage Water Treatment Plant project in Jebel Ali, having received approval for its second stage, was praised by Sheikh Mohammed, who lauded the civic body for its enthusiasm in maintaining and developing a problem-free sewage water treatment system since the inception of Al Aweer Plant 25 years ago.

The Sewage Water Treatment Plant Department has almost completed the design of the second stage of the plant, work on which is expected to start in July 2014 and be completed by December 2016.

The Al Mamzar Corniche Beach project, located in the Al Mamzar area opposite Palm Deira between Al Mamzar Park and Al Hamriya Port, aims to add 60,000 square metres of area to the public beaches of Dubai.

The project includes all basic and advanced facilities of public beaches in line with the ‘Blue Flag’ quality mark achieved by Mamzar Beach and is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2014.

The Methane Gas Extraction Project comes as part of the municipality’s vision in the area of sustainable development for the city, promoting Dubai as a leading entity in the field of green initiatives. The project,called "2020" in anticipation of Dubai hosting Expo 2020, is the first of its kind in the region and is designed to extract methane gas from the waste land-fill area in Al Qusais.

The Maritime Museum is inspired by the shape of a nautical snail, with great views of the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary enabling visitors to enjoy the sight of rare birds and the dazzling nature of the reserve. It will be a unique architectural masterpiece in its form and content, at an estimated cost of Dh35 million.


Mini World Park, designed to showcase replicas of famous monuments all over the world, is the first of its kind in the Arab world. It is expected to display the features of Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, New York's Empire State Building, the Canton Tower in China, Toronto's CN Tower, the Petronas Tower in Malaysia, and the Swiss Re Tower in the City of London.

The leisure park will also host replica historical landmarks, such as Abu Simbel Temple and Pyramids in Egypt, Algeria's ancient Roman ruins at Timgad, The Great Wall of China, Leptis Magna in Libya, the Kingdom of Kerma in Sudan, Aztec Temples in Mexico, The Colosseum in Rome, The Acropolis of Athens, Stonehenge in the south of England and Petra in Jordan.

The project would also contain some models of natural monuments and features, including The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Iraq, Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Australia, Raouche Rock in Lebanon, Mount Rushmore in the US, rice terraces in the Philippines, Resurrection Island in the south Atlantic Ocean, and Niagara Falls on the US - Canada border.


The Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Library project is a unique architectural masterpiece, designed in the form of a book bearer or an open book. This high profile project is set to be carried out by the civic body aiming to establish a central library that fits the needs of the city.

The building consists of a basement, ground floor and seven upper levels, with a total area of 50,000 square metres. The library will accommodate over one million books on display as well as 1.2 million books in storage.
