    The development has been designed with the expertise of leading industry firms such as Rabben Herman, Gensler, HOK, RTKL, Forrec and Riva Creative. In addition, consultants including CH2M Hill and Samsung SDS have provided infrastructure design. The overall master plan has been approved by the relevant government authorities.

    More than 1,500 personnel have been deployed to develop an initial area of approximately 25 million sq feet at Phase 1 of Dubai Parks & Resorts. The number of workers on site is expected to increase four-fold by 2015. With nearly 30 percent of the infrastructure development already complete, work on the power substation has registered 35 percent headway while excavation work for the district cooling facility has also commenced.

    Meraas Holding (...) is said to be planning an initial public offering of its theme park division before the end of the year.

    The sale of up to 40 per cent of, Dubai Parks & Resorts, expected to reap at least Dh2.5 billion, will be used to fund the development, including a Legoland, a Hollywood amusement resort and the first Bollywood movie theme park.

    Three theme parks — including one where inspiration will be drawn from India’s Bollywood — will make up the first phase of the Dubai Parks & Resorts master-development in Jebel Ali. For the younger generation (between two to 12 years), there will be the Middle East’s first Legoland park, which is also the seventh worldwide. The third component comes in the form of Motiongate Dubai, where future visitors can get up close and personal with the Hollywood dream factory, through rides that can take them through four unique zones.
