Dubai unveils world’s biggest beach project to build high-tech bio domes & turn 45 miles of coast into mangrove reefs

DUBAI sets its sight on the world record yet again with plans to build the world’s biggest beach complete with high-tech bio domes.

The Middle-Eastern supercity is already home to numerous architectural marvels from the tallest building to the biggest mall.

Dubai holds over 425 Guinness world records – more than any other city in the Middle East.

But this latest project could become the next wonder as a 45-mile shoreline is set to be transformed into a mangrove paradise.

The project developer, URB, has unveiled plans to plant 100million mangroves on the coast of the Persian Gulf.

The ambitious proposal features futuristic glass domes which will house a visitor hub, botanic museum and conservation centre.

Inside the bio domes, visitors could inspect various plants while learning more about mangroves and the flora of the area.

Tourists can also take a leisurely stroll along the coastline while enjoying the surrounding nature and breathtaking views of the ocean.

For fitness fanatics, there will be running and cycling tracks along with beach sports facilities.

The infrastructures will also include social spaces and areas dedicated to biosaline agriculture – a farming method using salty water.

Apart from recreational benefits, the project is aimed at boosting educational tourism and local ecosystem while blending the nature with leisure.

CEO of URB, Baharash Bagherian, explained: “Dubai Mangroves is a testament of how urban and environmental innovation can work in harmony as a model for cities worldwide, demonstrating the transformative power of integrating ecological preservation with urban growth. 

“Yet this project is much more than coastal regeneration or resilience. It’s about setting a global standard for how cities can balance the needs of the planet with the needs of the people.”

The mangrove forest is expected to capture 1.23million tonnes of C02 annually – an equivalent to emissions from 260,000 cars per year.

The groundbreaking initiative is still at its early stages with the creators evaluating six potential areas to build on, including Dubai Marina Beach and Jumeirah Public Beach.

The masterminds behind the project are also responsible for the Loop – a 58-mile cycling highway encased in a glass tube that would wrap around Dubai.

If built, the Loop would have a kinetic floor that produces energy when stepped on and would make Dubai “the most connected city by foot or bike”.

MORE AMBITIOUS PLANS

Dubai are hoping to build “the world’s largest airport” which will see 260million passengers travel through £28billion futuristic desert hub.

Construction of a futuristic new passenger terminal at Al Maktoum International Airport will begin immediately.

All operations of Dubai International Airport (DXB) – currently the world’s busiest airport by international passenger traffic – will be transferred to Al Maktoum “within the next 10 years”, Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum said on Sunday.

The city is also set to have the first underwater stadium with a jaw-dropping 108ft glass roof looking up into the ocean.

The groundbreaking project comes with an eye-watering price tag of £2billion and is designed by Polish architect Krzysztof Kotala.

The complex is planned to be situated in a swanky part of town between the Burj Al Arab and the Palm Jumeirah islands in Dubai.

As well as housing array of fish and marine animals, the complex coasts seven tennis courts with a breath-taking rooftop coral reef.

These grandiose projects come as Dubai is getting ready to construct the world’s tallest residential clock tower in a nod to London’s Big Ben.

The immense building will stand at a staggering 450 metres high (1,476ft) – almost five times higher than its 96-metre British counterpart.

Meanwhile, Dubailand, dubbed “the Middle East’s Disneyland”, is still being built 21 years on after running into challenges.

Costing around £50bn, the 107 sq metre project was set to be twice the size of Walt Disney World Resort and divided into six distinct zones.
