During his tour, His Highness visited the Dubai Holding stand, which showcased its project portfolio led by Madinat Jumeirah Living, a major landmark in Dubai’s prime Madinat Jumeirah district. The new project is the first freehold luxury residential development. Strategically located opposite to Dubai’s most iconic landmark, Burj al Arab, the new project is set to become the most prestigious residential address in the Emirate.
Home to Dubai’s most famous coastline, the district remains one of the most sought-after areas for luxury tourism, living and investment in the Emirate.

These include: Marsa Al Arab in addition to Jumeirah’s portfolio of landmarks led by Burj Al Arab, Al Qasr, Mina Al Salam, Dar Al Masyaf and Wild Wadi water park.
His Excellency Abdulla Ahmed Al Habbai, Chairman at Dubai Holding said: “Madinat Jumeirah Living is a natural extension to the hugely successful entertainment, hospitality, retail, tourism and lifestyle proposition of the Madinat Jumeriah resort, which we have built and enhanced over the years.
