Six major projects have been approved by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAR and Ruler of Dubai as part of Dubai’s plan for a Green and Sustainable City by 2021. The initiative, which focuses mainly on culture, sport, industry and services, will be managed by Dubai Municipality.

The Vertical Industrial City, a 280 hectare site comprising of residential, commercial and industrial entities, will be designed by Italian architects as one of Dubai’s upcoming projects. Gulf Safari, a 100- hectare golf complex with a training academy, will also be one of the upcoming projects.

The third project underway is a new Convention Centre that can occupy as much as 10,000 people in capacity. The center will be home to two hotels, offices and the new Mohammed Bin Rashid Library.

Dubai Steps, a Cultural and Sport project which includes 500 stairs, will symbolize both challenge and progress of Dubai, WAM reported.

Covering an area of 11 hectares, The Hardware, Bicycles and Green Building market will be another project of Dubai’s Sustainable city plan. Located in the Warsan area of Dubai, this will include 100 shops and 53 bicycle showrooms.

An extensive network of sewerage tunnels will also be built as one of the projects by Dubai Municipality by 2020. The tunnel will render the current 12 pumping stations used across the city.
