5 Islands Will Make Up The Enormous 17 Sq. Km. Attraction, And Each Will Have Its Own Offerings.
Dubai’s master developer has repurposed the ‘Deira Islands‘ project into a cluster of five islands spanning 17 square kilometres. As the developer doubles down on the Dubai branding, the new destination will be branded Dubai Islands. The project will be in line with Dubai’s 2040 Urban Master Plan and will “reinforce the emirate’s status. As a worldwide destination of choice for residents, visitors, and investors.”
Each island will have its own distinct offerings and will be home to more than 80 resorts and hotels. The future vision of the emirate, which emphasises improving the wellbeing of residents and visitors, states that the Dubai Islands are a crucial component of that vision. As well as providing the highest standards and variety of urban infrastructure and services,” said CEO of Nakheel.
“Dubai Islands will provide a destination inside a destination, complementing Nakheel’s portfolio of residential, retail, hotel, and recreational complexes.” Additionally, this is the biggest project Nakheel has announced since 2019–2020. When it concentrated on delivering on previously announced projects. This includes a massive mall on the Palm, as well as high-end house complexes around Dubai.
