The part I dont get is, 1. aren't the stadiums going to be empty most of the time? 2 How do you filll all those hotels? 3 Will they plan some sort of rail system? yikes with the traffic.

well, so far what i've seen is a huge network of perimeter highways and highways that go right through it.

and the world's biggest metro system with around 10 tram and monorail systems within the single masterplanned projects.

Filling the hotels shouldn't be a problem when u consider the incredible high prices in Dubai at the moment (2nd in the world) with an occupancy of more than 90% nevertheless (1st in the world)

What events in the stadium.. well the ICC moves its HQ here... ManU is going to have a football school.. not sure what else is going to take place in Sports City.

@ dubaiflo

Dubai ain't got the 'world's biggest metro system'! It only has 10 metro lines and a monorail line! Greater Tokyo has 136 of railway lines of all types (monorail, heavy-rail, light-rail, tramway, people mover line, commuter 'Bullet' train lines).

What exactly do you mean when you say that Dubai has the second highest prices?

2nd highest average hotel prices.


the metro is red Line: 50 kilometers, Green Line 20km, Blue Line 47 km and purple line is 49 km
while the latter two are still under design and an extension.

it will be the longest driverless fully automated metro system in the world.

the monorails for all the single projects come in addition to that, as well as the Tram.

Re: Dubai has the second highest average hotel prices
Oh...I see.

Re: Dubai's metro-system will be complemented by the monorail systems of individual projects plus the tramway so that it will be a pretty large system.
Well, yeah, the addition of monorail systems of several single projects will significantly increase Dubai's urban railway network. But, again, it is out of context to claim that it'll be the largest in the world. Remember, Dubai is an auto-centric city as opposed to the rail-centric cities like London and Tokyo.
Tokyo has over 2,300 kilometers of urban railways (And, that's just the 2004 statictics. There are several railway lines beng extended or, even, brand-new lines added into the network every year).

*************************************************************

Anyway, Dubai's metro development is a very positive and long-forsighted move coming from the Dubai government for the improvement of Dubai's overall transportation inrastructure network

A marvel superhero theme park would be a good idea but just curious if Marvel comics or it's characters are popular to it's city's youths.

Is the first picture in the last post a render or a real time shot?

Shouldn't the first post be remade so that it actually says something informative about the project? The video is great, but in the years that have past the project has developed in quite a different manner so it need a solid update...

PS! The poor discussion; there's a saying that says that the best thing you can do for the poor and downtrodden is not to be one of them. Dubai is a center where over a million people from around the world has come to pursue a better life. It is the epicentre of escaping poverty and will be a shining example for other developing countries to follow.

This Eiffel tower looks so tacky. Every provincial amusement park in Europe got either an Eiffel Tower or Statue of Liberty. Honestly.

I hope the amusement park areas are somewhat coherent, and that wont need a car to get around. It seems pretty fragmented in the models and redners. I know there will be more to it than an amusement park, but still, it wouldnt be an amusmeent park if you could walk around in it would it?

^if it is all connected by monorails etc then it wouldnt be a huge problem, as long as there isn't massive gaps it will be fine.

In terms of the rollercoasters, i've been waiting for dubai to announce the worlds bigggest or fastest rollercoaster, has this happened yet?
