Dubai Parks and Resorts – Phase 1, Dubai, UAE
The Dubai Parks project is destined to become the most significant themed entertainment destination in the Middle East. The master plan provides a mix of unprecedented attractions intended to equal the variety and guest experience level of such world-renowned destinations as Disneyland Anaheim Resort and Universal Orlando Resort. At full build out, Dubai Parks will include seven major gated theme parks, multiple stand-alone attractions, six hotels, commercial and civic facilities, public streetscapes, the central park, and the lagoon. With construction completed within ten years, the major and most challenging phase one is planned for completion by 2016. This phase will include Motiongate Dubai; Bollywood Parks; LEGOLAND Dubai; Lapita Hotel; retail, dining and entertainment; central park and lagoon; as well as the infrastructure and common back-of-house facilities. Cumming has been providing all cost estimation services on the project from initial concept design through construction for this $3.5 billion project.
