Tomorrows Dubai

So what does the future have in store for Dubai? Well, I’ve been doing a little research and come up with several projects which are either under way or about to be started. Try this for starters!

In 2012 the world’s longest and tallest arch bridge will open in Dubai. It will be one mile long and 670 tall! It will also feature the world’s first vacuum tube mass transit system.

Dubailand theme park is well under way. When completed it will be twice the size of Disneyworld and will have cost a staggering $814 million!


Another resort is about to constructed. The difference with this one, Hydropolis, is that it will be the world’s first underwater resort!

Dubai is about to see the world’s biggest skyscraper mounted LED screen. It will be 33 stories high and clearly ‘watchable’ for over a mile.


Pentominium is to be an apartment block twice the height of any residential building in the world. It will be 576 metres tall and constructed on the world’s deepest ever excavation





Restless Planet is to be a durasic style theme park featuring 104 autotronic robots of 40 species of dinosaur!How much will it cost? $1 billion!
Finally my personal favourite, and had I read about it on April the first I would have been highly suspicious! It’s to be known as Dynamic Tower and will be the world’s first rotating apartment block. Each floor will be able to change direction independently on voice command, and between each floor will be wind turbines to supply all the necessary electricity.

  3. I could never live in that Pentominium. I'm still scarred for life from watching "The Towering Inferno" when I was around 10.
