Abu Dhabi Land has entered the final phase of the dredging, reclamation and rock embankment work for Dolphin Island, the landmark UAE commercial and residential real estate, entertainment and leisure development.
In a statement today (July 22nd), Abu Dhabi Land announced that work on the project is expected to be complete within two years, taking the total duration for construction to five years.
Included in Dolphin Island will be a golf course, a seven-star hotel, commercial and residential property developments and many other attractions and venues.
Dubai became home to the world's first seven-star hotel with the completion of the Burj Al Arab in 1999.
Abu Dhabi Land has already completed work on rock bunds and revetments that give shape to the island, which is expected to cost around AED77.875 million to complete.
The original budget was set at AED47.875 million but this was later revised upwards in line with plans to increase its scope.
