Dubai’s visionary leader, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has given official approval for the groundbreaking development masterplan of Palm Jebel Ali. Spanning an impressive area of 13.4 square kilometers, twice the size of Palm Jumeirah, this ambitious project will introduce abundant green spaces and extraordinary waterfront experiences.
As an integral part of the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan, Palm Jebel Ali will create a substantial growth corridor in the Jebel Ali area, further expanding the emirate’s remarkable development. Notably, the addition of approximately 110 kilometers of coastline will provide around 35,000 families with the opportunity to enjoy luxury beachside living.
Sheikh Mohammed expresses confidence in realizing these ambitious future plans, stating, “Palm Jebel Ali will enhance our urban infrastructure and solidify Dubai’s position as a global metropolis. This pioneering endeavor aligns with our strategic development agenda, prioritizing the improvement of residents’ quality of life and overall happiness.”
“The urban growth in Palm Jebel Ali reflects Dubai’s thriving economy and demonstrates its exceptional potential as a hub for investment and talent. This initiative will contribute to Dubai’s sustainable development by creating new growth opportunities in various industries,” he added. Palm Jebel Ali will feature over 80 hotels, resorts, and a wide range of recreational and entertainment options.
This project will assist the emirate in achieving its goal of expanding beach attractions and promoting sustainable development while accommodating population growth as outlined in the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan.
Embracing modern urban planning principles
The master plan of Palm Jebel Ali incorporates contemporary practices such as mixed-use walkable neighborhoods, smart city technologies, and sustainable measures. It aims to provide diverse mobility options for residents, visitors, and communities, establishing Palm Jebel Ali as a global exemplar for waterfront living and contributing to Dubai’s evolving landscape.
With a strong emphasis on sustainability, Palm Jebel Ali has been meticulously designed to achieve near self-sufficiency in power generation upon completion. Up to 30% of the development’s energy requirements will be met through renewable sources, showcasing a steadfast commitment to eco-friendly practices.
