Dubai property developer Nakheel has unveiled a new vision for Dubai Islands as demand for water-front living grows.
Dubai Islands, formerly known as Deira Islands, will be aligned to Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan, reinforcing the emirate’s position as a global destination of choice for residents, visitors and investors.
It will comprise five, interconnected islands with a total area of 17 square kilometres. Each island will have its own offerings of innovative living experiences, cultural hubs, recreational sport beaches and beach clubs, and easy access to the city and airport.
The islands will be home to over 80 resorts and hotels, including luxury and wellness resorts, boutique, family and eco-conscious hotels, supporting Dubai's ambition to boost the tourism and hospitality sector by increasing the number of hotel keys.
With over 20 kilometres of beaches, including a Blue Flag certified beach, approximately two square kilometres of parks and open spaces and premium golf courses overlooking the Arabian Gulf, Dubai Islands will increase the length of beaches and areas dedicated to public parks.
A well-connected network of marina promenades and pathways for water and road transportation, walking and biking support the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan in developing vibrant and healthy communities.
