Dubai is the place to be in 2014, as building and investment projects add even more to facilities and amenities to an already impressive repertoire. Since 2009 the Dubai economy has gained strength and this has been the impetus for several ambitious developments that are planned for completion in 2015. The developments will bring affordable, sustainable housing to Dubai, and will give a welcome boost to the economy.
Two of the most talked about projects are the plans announced by Hard Rock International to build in Dubai, and the revival of a stalled plan to construct six developments in Dubai.

Hard Rock International has announced plans to open a Hard Rock Hotel in Marina 101, a project developed in Dubai Marina by Sheffield Holdings. The news has been warmly welcomed by residents all over Dubai, who are already spoiled for choice when it comes to high-class eateries and all the other amenities that top hotels bring with them.
The location that has been chosen for the hotel in Dubai Marina which places the fledgling development firmly at the heart of Dubai’s bustling City Centre.
Plans for the new hotel have already been created in detail. The 101-floor tower will house luxury residential apartments, as well as a 281-room hotel, which will occupy the first 33 floors of the development. The plans have been widely welcomed as they bring much needed affordable, sustainable housing to Dubai, not to mention the increased mix of facilities that the hotel will offer.
Hard Rock International estimates that the hotel will be ready in 2015.
Dubai’s alive with the sound of the building.
Dubai is a hub of industrial development at the moment and news that the City will also benefit from the reinstatement of plans to build six residential developments has excited residents and investors alike.
An ambitious plan set in motion by Q Developments was stopped in its tracks as a result of legal and financial difficulties in 2009. Renewed interest in the completion of the project has led to it being revived. The initial plans have now been dusted off and restarted with financial backing from Empire Arabia.
Two of the six planned developments will be located in Sports City, another two will be constructed in International City. The final two development projects are located in Business Bay and Jumeirah Village Triangle.
