Bluewaters Island Project in Dubai
Dubbed The Bluewaters Island, this inspiring project is yet another effort of the Prime Minister of the UAE, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to make Dubai a real force. No less than $1.6 billion will be invested in it and it will reportedly house the Dubai Eye, which will be the largest Ferris wheel in the world, measuring 210 meters in height. The project aims to attract many tourists, as it will have residential areas, entertainment venues and a not-so-unexpected five-star hotel.
The island will be connected to land through a pedestrian bridge, a railway and a road. As for the Ferris wheel, Starneth Engineering and Hyundai Contracting are said to be the main contractors. The project will begin its development in April and is bound to become yet another sought-after place in Dubai.
