The design team was challenged to create a successful outdoor retail, dining and entertainment destination around the Dubai Eye, a 210-M wheel intended to be the iconic feature of the Dubai waterfront.
Bluewaters will be a one-of-a-kind development, situated on a newly created, manmade island. The project is complemented by a mixed-use development boasting residential housing with water and urban skyline views, two beachfront hotels, and a collection of fine retail, dining and entertainment. Inviting public walkways and waterfront boardwalks encourage pedestrian exploration of this contemporary island development from the nearby area. With dedicated road access and a variety of other transportation options to the site, including a cable car, bus, taxi, water taxis, a pedestrian bridge and a PRT system, visitors relish their arrival.
