#PROJECT: THE WATERFRONT

Name: Dubai Waterfront
Location: Palm Jebel Ali
















H.H. Sheikh Mohammmed announces the launch of Dubai Waterfront, the world's largest waterfront development

81 million square metre beachfront development destined to be an international landmark

2005.1.29, Dubai, UAE - Under the direction of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence, Nakheel debuted its investor launch of the unparalleled Dubai Waterfront, an 81 million square metre beachfront mixed use destination which encompasses over 250 best of breed master planned communities and offerings.

Destined to become an international landmark, Dubai Waterfront is the world's largest waterfront offering, and is located 35 km south west of Dubai, bordering Abu Dhabi, on the last remaining coastal waterfront of the Emirate. Considered the New Gateway of Dubai, Dubai Waterfront has been carefully crafted and developed by an international consortium of the world's best architects, planners and urban developers assembled by Nakheel in 2004, whose goal was to create a destination never before seen in Dubai, or the world.

Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence said, "Dubai Waterfront centres around water, something we consider perpetually valuable and precious. It is an unprecedented advancement and a world-class addition to Dubai, one which will create long term growth and investment for the UAE and the wider region. We're inviting developers to benefit by being partners with Nakheel."

Dubai Waterfront forms the first phase of a larger effort, the Arabian Canal,a 75 km development envisioned by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed. The first phase of Dubai Waterfront will focus on Madinat Al Arab, a thriving urban downtown metropolis, including Al Burj, one of the world���s tallest buildings.

Nakheel has created Dubai Waterfront Company, and will be the majority owner, offering 49% to select investors. Executive Chairman of Nakheel, Sultan Bin Sulayem said, "With Dubai Waterfront, Nakheel has raised the bar to a never before seen level. We are proud to help realise Sheikh Mohammed's vision for the Arabian Canal, with this first phase, Dubai Waterfront. It is destined to become a landmark for Dubai, one which will attract tourists, residents, and businesses, and create a destination like nowhere else."

Nakheel is recognised as one of the region's premier developers, focused on Waterfront, Themed Communities, Golf and Retail. Famed for innovative and iconic properties, Nakheel is known for its signature offerings, The Palm and The World.

farnush, Dubai Waterfront is just the first phase of Arabian Canal, meaning that future mega-projects are going to be centered around this 75km canal and it's all prolly been planned out already, but still to be announced.

^Yeah I noticed that from the renderings early on, there's so much to be said about this I dont know where to start? One recommendation when watching the video, pause it at exactly 5min:29s-30s. Its like an extraterrestial colony!

The Arabian Canal will unite with Dubai Marina creek before streaming out into the sea.

taken from FAQ http://www.thedubaiwaterfront.com/np_fq.php

When will work on the basic infrastructure begin?
Projects related to Dubai Waterfront will commence once the detailed design which is ongoing, is completed. The first works will be announced shortly related to the construction of basic infrastructure within the environs. Bidding and tenders will be invited later from prospective companies that will carry out the project. Accordingly, work on the basic infrastructure is expected to start within the first half of this year.

What is the proposed timing for Dubai Waterfront?
It is estimated that Dubai Waterfront will be developed over the next five to ten years,with the primary infrastructure being completed within five years.As with many projects in Dubai , Dubai Waterfront will be developed instages , over a number of years, with each phase being independently viable, and providing a balance of mixed-use property development.

What are the projects and facilities that Dubai Waterfront will feature?
Dubai Waterfront will comprise a balanced mix of residential, retail, hotel, office and industrial offerings,in addition to commonareas that will be reserved for educational, cultural, health, and recreational (including a golf course) purposes.

How many hotels are expected within Dubai Waterfront?
There are some 150 - 200 planned hotel plots, however these can be merged into larger resorts, therefore the actual number of hotels is likely to be less.

What is the estimated future population of Dubai Waterfront?
Based on the buildable area within Dubai Waterfront, it is estimated that Dubai Waterfront will provide accommodation for approximately 400,000 - 750,000 persons to live and work.

Pause the video at 1:52 - seems like there are at least 3 more objects planned in the sea. Sorry, I couldnt make a screenshot.

I posted it in the international thread but edited it away again - why should I spoil your fun of announcing?
