I have heard today that Nakheel is working on another major top secret project for Dubai!

Anyone know about this? What could it be this time!

Nakheel's CEO said that on a interview.

I posted the AFP article (where he mentioned that) on "The World" thread.

This is excellent news!

I think it is better to have it as a separate island this way there will be more media attention and it wont be misunderstood as DubaiLand.



I hope they make the Dubai one stand out of the crowd a bit - could do with some updating.

Steve, how come there isn't a source (link) for this news? ;) Hint Hint
Its a News Wire Agency Services message. However, this project is just talks as this stage - nothing concrete just that its likely.

I'm just saying isn't 3bn sq feet of space enough for theme parks and stuff?

You would think so, but the more the better - Dubai want's 40 million happy Western children visiting each year. :)

Correct no link, news wire services are delivered by email for those that subscribe. However, Im not sure that John Smith is the real name of the executive?! hmmm.. its not April the 1st again is it!?

they should build it deeeeeeeeeeeeep in the middle of the desert, with an underground high speed railway connecting it with the airport.


that way, the city gets all their tourist dollars, but we dont have to see 40 million of em running around the place

DisneyLand on the sea ... its a cool idea. I like it.

Not exactly competition for DubaiLand since DubaiLand is a collection of theme parks, sports areana etc. A larger version of Disney World. DisneyLand on the other hand is a small park like Alton Towers.

nice proposal metro :D

maybe now nakheel will launch their central business district like emaar has done it with the burj, dubai properties with business bay and i think union properties and another company with the difc and some other companies with the new jxb airport

are you ready for "financial island", the first cbd ever built on an artificial island
it will be located between palm jumeirah and palm jebel ali :D :lol:

a note by the side

what can we say about this new project:
there are 3 things
1) the waterfront conference is going on
2) they have founded the "waterfront company" along with the announcement of the
dubai waterfront project
3) nakheel's focus is islands


proof enough it'll be another island(s)?

Oh-kay! Let's stop this right here! I was just killing time between classes at school.
I couldn't get a better kick outta my day than watching all you Dubai-lovers (pun intended, d-l ;)).

It's just a joke, some might call it a lie. And since I take great pains in keeping my conscious clean, I'm just pluggin' it here.

And by the way, I'm a PR guy -- so watch me spin! J/K! Sorry guys! =)
