Dubai to have the Middle East’s first tropical rainforest

27 February 2015

The proposed tropical ecosystem will be within a dome at Damac Property’s Akoya Oxygen development.

The Dubai Rainforest is due to be completed ahead of the World Expo 2020 exhibition taking place in the Emirate, and is intended to become a key tourist attraction.

“Dubai is known around the world for attracting the biggest and best and the Dubai Rainforest joins that list of unique attractions which will support the growth of the city,” said Ziad El Chaar, managing director of Damac Properties.

“The Dubai Rainforest will fit perfectly into the ethos of Akoya Oxygen – the greenest community in Dubai – and provide a new space for education and cultural events which will raise awareness of this exciting ecosystem.”
