In a pretty big milestone so we are excited to announce that the Dubai Canal project is now been filled with water.
While the water level is still low (it’ll be six metres deep when full), the 3.2 kilometre canal will now start serving as a fully functional waterway.
Here’s what you need to know about this new development and, more importantly, about the Dubai Canal itself.
The Dubai Canal is a 3.2 kilometre long waterway stretching from Business Bay to the Arabian Gulf, lined with retail and restaurants, parks, accommodation, a running track, greenery, seating areas and environmentally friendly lighting.
Think Dubai Creek, but modernised and moved to the centre of the city. More info and photos
