Second Atlantis hotel to open at Nakhla Jumeirah Dubai
To be completed by 2018
After completion, the projects being undertaken by ICD have the potential to contribute 10% to the national economy.
When inspecting the engineering design at Atlantis hotel at Nakhla Jumeirah Dubai recently, Sheikh Mohammed ordered completion of the construction by 2018 after being briefed by Mohammed Ibrahim Al Shaibani, Director-General of the Dubai Ruler's Court, CEO of ICD and engineering supervisors on the components of each project. In particular he examined components of Royal Atlantis resort on the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai which will cost $1.5 billion. There are also plans to take the Atlantis brand to China, the meeting revealed.
Sheikh Mohammed was also briefed about the 1 million square metre Warsan project to be constructed at Al Aweer road, set to include residential buildings and model boarding school, costing Dh2.5bn.
The ever-contemporary Sheikh Mohammed expressed his admiration about the-state-of-art development designs being implemented by the ICD in and outside the UAE, adding that these projects will develop and diversify the UAE economy. "They reflect the strength of our economy and its ability to grow steadily," he said.
