His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan has just approved three new projects to drive tourism and opportunities for the creative industry. Overall, the new projects will cover approximately 3 million square meters in the Zayed Port area.
Since Dubai and Abu Dhabi have caught the eye of Hollywood and Bollywood, we have seen an increasing number of blockbusters filmed in both cities. From Mission Impossible back in 2011, to Fast and Furious and Star Wars, there is no doubt more filmmakers are coming to the UAE. In response to the demand, a media production city is being planned to cover 300,000 square meters. An external filming site, as well as Cinema and TV production studios will be part of the project.
The creativity zone will provide residential and miscellaneous facilities for innovators to work and develop their projects. There will also be leisure and recreational areas included in the development. The Salama Bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation will develop this project in the area around Warehouse421.
As a new hub for the creative community, the development will also be a cultural destination with fresh opportunities for creative individuals that can be improved and built upon.
Welcome 2018. Exciting times ahead!
