A Look at the Dubai Bluewaters Island Opening in 2018


A Look at the Dubai Bluewaters Island Opening in 2018


With the world’s largest Ferris wheel and stunning views, this island is promising to be the newest favourite attraction of Dubai!

If you’ve been anywhere around JBR recently, you couldn’t have missed the enormous structure being constructed there. The world’s largest observation wheel, Ain Dubai, is starting to come together on the new Bluewaters Island.

We’ve just got a sneak peek at what to expect the Dhs6 billion island to look like once it’s all complete. And we can’t contain our excitement!

What's in it?

The observation wheel, standing 210 metres high, will be the focus of attention, featuring 48 capsules large enough to walk inside. Ain Dubai, literally meaning Dubai Eye, has a capacity of 1,400 people at a time and it would take around 48 minutes to complete a full circle.

The island will feature 10 waterfront residential buildings, with 689 apartments and 17 townhouses. For the lucky rich, there are also four luxury penthouses featuring stunning ocean views and private swimming pools.

Aside from the residential aspect, there will be two five-star hotels, many restaurants, retail shops and beach clubs as well as entertainment options.
 
The island will be accessible from The Beach at JBR through a 256-metre pedestrian bridge as well as from Sheikh Zayed Road and a monorail system.

When to expect it?

You can look forward to this new attraction coming to life next year! The residences have a move-in date for the first quarter of 2018 while the observation wheel is expected to open sometime in 2018.

Last September, it was announced that the access bridges were about 85 percent complete, so the timeline seems on track.
