Dubai Municipality projects enrich the real estate environment at Cityscape 2019, held from 25 to 27 September at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The Municipality’s participation in the event is part of its efforts as a service department and its role in meeting the needs of the community, as it focuses on enhancing the real estate environment in Dubai and applying best practices in the field of environmental conservation.
The Municipality pavilion in Cityscape 2019 contains many exhibits that reflect its activities and efforts in preserving the environment, in addition to future investment projects in the Emirate. The Municipality is also screening a number of films about its efforts in the development process and the provision of services to the community and the modern systems followed by the Municipality in various fields.
One of the participating projects is the Mohammed Bin Rashid Library, a unique development and a distinctive mark on the Dubai tourist map that incorporates state-of-the-art technology. The project, which has been designed to look like an open book, is being constructed on an area of 54,000m2 and is located on the Dubai Creek in Al Jaddaf area.
Another exhibit is the recently opened Quranic Park, a modern cultural project that emerges from the cultural and scientific achievements of Islam. The Park is a wonderful opportunity to explain the meanings of many miracles contained in the Holy Quran in the scientific and medical fields, as well as featuring a collection of plants mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah.
The Municipality exhibits also include the Crocodile Park, which will cover an area of 20,000m2. The project aims to establish an ecological reserve that provides the best means of transport, nutrition, and healthcare for crocodiles.
The Waste-to-Energy project is another key development, the first of its kind in the world in terms of absorptive capacity for solid waste treatment and conversion into energy. The exhibition also features the Dubai Frame, one of the cultural landmarks in the UAE that captures spectacular views of ancient and modern Dubai within a single frame, becoming a bridge connecting the Emirate’s past with its thriving present.
The Municipality pavilion also promotes the Dubai International Award for Best Practices, highlighting the following categories: Innovative Best Practices in Urban Planning and Urban Development, and Best Practices in Building Sustainable Buildings and Smart Building.
Dawoud Al Hajri, Director General of the Municipality, said: “Dubai presents every day a new achievement for the world. We are facing a new challenge to create new business concepts and mechanisms that reshape the business system, to make Dubai a gateway to the future and the application of future ideas.”
