Second Phase of Dubai’s Heritage Preservation Project Begins

The second phase of Dubai’s heritage architecture preservation project is set to restore an additional 35 heritage sites and buildings built between the 1960s and 1990s. The new additions will bring the total number of sites restored by the preservation initiative to 807.

The initial phase covered 17 archaeological sites, 14 historical areas and 741 buildings, and focused on landmarks from Dubai’s earlier historical periods.

Examples of some of the landmarks included in the second phase of the project include the Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Palace, the Clock Tower, Al Ras Library, Jumeirah Mosque, Jumeirah Zoo and the Dubai Creek Golf Club. As well as preserving the heritage architecture of Dubai, the plans aim to protect areas and buildings which hold significant historical relevance and tell the story of Dubai’s past.
