Hamdan bin Mohammed greenlights Dubai's heritage architecture preservation project's second phase.


Dubai's commitment to preserving its rich heritage architecture is exemplified by the approval of the second phase of a comprehensive project by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai. This initiative, in alignment with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, aims to elevate the emirate's status as a global cultural destination while safeguarding its unique identity.

The project focuses on protecting architecture of significant historical value, which serves as a testament to Dubai's storied past. This includes structures that have witnessed the emirate's transformation from the 1960s to the 1990s. Through meticulous preservation efforts, the project seeks to ensure that these sites, numbering 35 in this phase alone, continue to narrate Dubai's journey towards becoming a thriving metropolis.

In its initial phase, the project covered a wide array of historical landmarks, including 17 archaeological sites, 14 historical areas, and 741 buildings from earlier periods of Dubai's history. By extending its scope to encompass more recent architectural treasures, the project underscores the importance of preserving the emirate's diverse heritage for future generations.

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan emphasized the significance of protecting heritage architecture in fostering a deeper understanding among citizens, residents, and visitors alike. By cherishing Dubai's past, the project aims to provide insights into the factors that have shaped the emirate's remarkable growth into a global hub of innovation and cultural exchange.

The restoration of these heritage sites and buildings represents more than just a preservation effort; it is a celebration of Dubai's rich history and a tribute to the visionaries who laid the foundation for its success. His Highness Sheikh Hamdan described these sites as an "open museum of human heritage," emphasizing the responsibility to safeguard them as symbols of Dubai's progress and resilience.

Furthermore, the project underscores Dubai's commitment to cultural continuity and the promotion of its unique identity on the global stage. By showcasing the emirate's historical interactions with the world and the diverse influences that have shaped its landscape, Dubai invites visitors to explore its past, present, and future in one seamless experience.

In addition to preserving historical landmarks, the project also aims to enhance the appeal of both historical areas and modern architectural marvels to attract more visitors. This multifaceted approach reflects Dubai's dedication to strengthening its national identity and solidifying its position as a leading economic, cultural, and tourism destination.

His Excellency Dawoud Al Hajri, Director General of Dubai Municipality, reiterated the Municipality's commitment to preserving historical landmarks and heritage sites. He highlighted the significance of the sites covered in the second phase of the project, which represent a pivotal era in Dubai's history marked by rapid development and modernization under the visionary leadership of late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum.

The restoration of these sites not only honors their historical significance but also serves as a testament to Dubai's resilience and adaptability in the face of change. As Dubai continues to evolve, these heritage sites stand as reminders of its rich cultural heritage and the enduring spirit of its people.

Overall, the approval of the second phase of the heritage architecture preservation project reflects Dubai's unwavering commitment to honoring its past while embracing its future. By safeguarding its heritage, Dubai not only preserves its history but also paves the way for future generations to appreciate and learn from the legacy of those who came before them.
