    Italian studio Stefano Boeri Architetti has adapted its Vertical Forest concept for a pair of skyscrapers in Dubai, which will be covered in thousands of trees. Revealed by Stefano Boeri Architetti yesterday at the COP27 climate change conference in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, the project comprises two tapering towers at 190 and 150 metres tall.


    Together, they will integrate 2,640 trees and 27,600 shrubs on the facades, along with "a system of greenhouses and hydroponic gardens", the studio said. Hydroponic gardens are engineered to grow plants in a vertical formation using water-based, mineral nutrient solutions in place of soil.

    The creators of Abu Dhabi’s jaw-dropping Zaya Nurai Island are turning their attention to new shores in Dubai. We’re already mentally checking-in to Zuha Island, a dazzling new private island resort currently under construction at the World Islands.






    This is the third development to join the Dubai World Islands portfolio. The first hotel within the island archipelago, a luxurious Anantara property, opened at the end of 2021. In the coming weeks, the first hotels at The Heart of Europe will begin to welcome guests, with island staycationers first set to check-in to Côte d’Azur Monaco resort.

    After being dormant for over a decade, Developer Nakheel have announced that the Palm Jebel Ali mega project in Dubai is being relaunched due to the high demand for beachfront villas and apartments.
    Investors had purchased 29 properties on the partially completed artificial island before construction was put on hold in 2009 due to the global financial crash which caused property prices to fall by 60 percent.
    Being that the Palm Jebel Ali is one and a half time times the size of the popular Palm Jumeirah, completing construction of the mega project could meet the city’s demand as some reports claim that up to 1,700 beach villas and 6,000 apartments could become available.

    Anantara Resort opened on The World Islands (it's not part of the Heart of Europe) in December 2021.

    I have seen nothing of this resort up to now and they seem to still be hosting PR trips 6 months after opening which isn't promising!

    In December, the artificial archipelago got its first hotel: A five-star resort operated by Anantara that sits on the island representing Argentina and offers 70 beachfront villas with panoramic views of Dubai’s skyscraper-strewn skyline.




    From a jetty on the Palm Jumeirah, a 15-minute transfer via speedboat provides views of Dubai landmarks such as the self-styled “seven-star” Burj Al Arab hotel. As the boat enters through the World’s oval breakwater, the Anantara resort comes into view, its circumference marked out by a thousand coconut trees imported from Oman. Staff clap arriving guests in a ceremony aping traditions in the Maldives. Peacocks root among young plants dotted around the beachfront.






    For the most part, the operation is already well-oiled. Staff are attentive but give guests some privacy, communicating via WhatsApp rather than intrusive phone calls. A Mediterranean-themed restaurant provides a buffet breakfast and all-day eating. Qamar, the fine-dining outlet, boasts a porch overlooking the sea, where they serve Arabic and Indian food, including some of the finest naan in Dubai.


    It takes a gentle 30-minute walk to circumnavigate the island and, while most of the World remains unbuilt on, a handful of other developments are visible. There are the lush surroundings of “Greenland”, where Sheikh Mohammed has a villa, and apartment blocks and Viking longship-themed palaces on “The Heart of Europe”, a residential and hospitality complex over six islands.

    A picture of some of the most famous islands taken from the Space Station in April.

  8. I visited the Palm Jumeirah and found some free building sites! All on the Crescent Road. Check it out !





  9. I was on the Palm Jumeirah, and here is the resort that is being built next to C Central Resort The Palm.

  10. The Palm Jumeirah still has some sites in the early stages of construction. Here is the one.
    Have any ideas what are they planning to build there?
