Dubai‘s Plans for a Green, Fresh-Water-Filled, Self-Sustaining, Ecological City

Up until now, Dubai has been attracting visitors with its skyscrapers, affluence and barely comprehensible, highly ambitious projects. Now, it seems, one of the world’s wealthiest cities plans to continue astonishing us with its aspirations, although this time, instead of giant structures, we might witness the development of a green, energetically self-sustaining city.

Joining the processes, the Intercontinental hotel group has announced it is to build an eco-resort, called Indigo. According to Britain's Daily Mail, the builders are hoping to open their new 170-room-hotel in the first half of 2017. The hotel will not only make its own electricity, but will also clean water and sewage, and recycle and process waste in accordance with modern requirements.

The greenery is set to consist not of water-intensive lawns, but of local plants that are adapted to the climate. The centre of Dubai and the Indigo hotel will be connected via sun-powered public transportation.

The complex will span residential spaces, green schools, a community centre, a horse-riding hall, a football field, a number of solar-battery-covered parking lots, an organic farm and such tourist attractions as a planetarium and a grass-covered amphitheatre. With this project, Dubai hopes to become a regional leader in the areas of eco-tourism and environmental protection, whereas just a few years ago it was only a resource-heavy city.
