Dubai Pearl is raising all bars and setting new benchmarks in urban development. The mammoth construction is in full swing and if current development is any indication the final product will be one of the state-of-art constructions we have seen in recent time.
The construction is backed by consortium of investors led by Abu Dhabi’s Al Fahim Group, one of the UAE’s most successful businesses. The group has a strong track record, accrued over 50 years, operating across multiple sectors.
Dubai pearl is situated on the suburbs of the Dubai Media and Technology Free Zone overlooking Palm Jumeirah. This 24 hour walkable city has been designed by German architect Professor Peter Schweger.
Dubai Pearl is a 20 million sq ft integrated development which is spread over 40.26 acres with almost half of the site area being dedicated to public with open spaces and have array of premium offices, international retail, dining and five-star hotels.
This urban living and business hub will also have medial amenities, kindergarten, community centre and a library in the landscaped grounds. Residents can also enjoy lavish lifestyle with roof-top garden terraces, a holistic wellness and sports centre, urban beach club, spa and a cinema complex.
What’s more? Dubai pearl will also boast of a 1,800 seat opera and music house; two performing arts theatres; a ten screen cinema complex, art boulevard and exhibition galleries; an academy of music, dance, film and fashion; and extensive children’s play amenities.
The development will ultimately provide a home for approximately 9,000 people and a workplace for 12,000. There will be 15,500 allotted car parking spaces. And if you have started thinking about the environments impact because of this huge construction then don’t worry as Dubai Pearl is (pre-certified) Gold LEED in recognition of its environmental performance.
This city within city will include a fully integrated road system and will be connected to public transport and the Dubai Metro by bus and taxis. Dubai Pearl’s initial handover is scheduled to commence end of 2013.
