Dubai launches new Palm Jebel Ali masterplan, to be twice the size of Palm Jumeirah


Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has unveiled the masterplan for Palm Jebel Ali, a colossal development that is twice the size of Palm Jumeirah.

This ambitious project aims to transform Dubai into the most stunning city globally and will feature an impressive array of 80 new hotels.

Additionally, Sheikh Mohammed announced that Palm Jebel Ali will encompass a remarkable 110 kilometres of pristine beaches.

In a tweet, Sheikh Mohammed said: “Dubai is growing and thriving. Today, we announce today the new plan for Palm Jebel Ali. Its area is twice that of Palm Jumeirah and its beaches reach 110km.

“Its marine and green pastures will provide housing with the highest quality of life and its visitors and tourists will enjoy more than 80 hotels and resorts that provide beautiful tourist experiences for them and their families.

“We announced our goal to double Dubai’s economy by 2033 and every day we add a new brick in building the most beautiful city in the world”.

The best city to live, work, and play

Part of the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan, Palm Jebel Ali is one of a series of visionary projects being undertaken by Dubai-based real estate master developer Nakheel. Sheikh Mohammed said Dubai will continue to innovate and deliver world-class lifestyle destinations that enhance its status as the globe’s best city to live, work and visit.

Palm Jebel Ali will raise the global benchmark in waterfront living and offer a breadth of luxury lifestyle amenities for residents, families and visitors, supporting the objective of the Dubai Economic Agenda D33 to consolidate Dubai’s status as one of the world’s top cities for business and tourism. The project also marks the beginning of a new growth corridor in the Jebel Ali area, underlining the expansion of the emirate.

Spanning an area of 13.4 square kilometres and occupying an area twice the size of Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali will feature extensive green spaces and unique waterfront experiences.

The project will add approximately 110 kilometres of coastline to Dubai that will provide approximately 35,000 families with unrivalled luxury beachside living.

Palm Jebel Ali will feature more than 80 hotels and resorts, and a wide choice of entertainment and leisure facilities that will contribute to Dubai’s tourism sector, while distinguishing the archipelago as an aspirational residential destination in the city.
