Dubai Is Building A Private Island Modeled After Miami

In Dubai, a developer has announced a plan to build an entire island that is touted to be offering “Miami beach-style living.”

Emaar Beachfront will be built next to Palm Jumeirah, a series of artificial islands in the shape of a palm.

The island will be gated, and will eventually have 27 residential towers.

Sales for the first two towers with 375 residences opened last week and immediately sold out, with total sales said to be $270 million.
