|Mall of the World|
Dubai continues its quest to be the new Babylon. In order to attract more visitors, they are going to build a giant new shopping mall. It will have 48 million square feet of space. That is 1.7 square miles or 4.5 square kilometers for our metric friends. It will have everything you need enclosed under one single enormous glass dome and there will be no need to go out into the harsh desert climate. The name of the new shopping center will be the Mall of the World.
And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. Revelation 18:11-14
World's first climate-controlled domed city to be built in Dubai
Dubai has announced plans to build the first climate-controlled city on the planet. The area, constructed under a huge glass dome, will accommodate the world's largest shopping center, over 100 hotels, and a wellness district for medical tourists.
The city of Dubai is the most populous in the United Arab Emirates, and the second-largest emirate by territorial size. Though it is a popular tourist spot, many are deterred from visiting due to the city's scorching heat, with temperatures reaching 113 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees Celsius) in the summer.
UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed confirmed plans for the world's first temperature-controlled city, named 'Mall of the World,' in early July. The city will be made “to enhance Dubai's tourist infrastructure as soon as possible,” he said.
The needs of visitors and residents of the Gulf state will be catered for in the 48 million square foot area – no matter what the outdoor conditions happen to be at the time.
To control its climate, the area will be covered by a single glass dome, which will be open during the winter months.
According to Dubai Holding, the Sheikh's property arm, "tourists will be able to enjoy a week-long stay without the need to leave the City or use a car. The 7 km (4.3 miles) long promenades connecting all facilities will be covered during the summer and open during the winter, ensuring pleasant temperatures throughout the year."Read More
