Dubai Municipality is about to complete its Port Saeed Plaza project, which is a public park
on Sheikh Zayed Road by the end of this year in line with the strategic directions through
the design and implementation of service projects in Dubai.
Eng. Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General of Dubai Municipality said that we
considered the climate change and global environmental situations aiming the reduction of
environmental pollution, gas emissions and savings in energy consumption.
“The Municipality applied highest international standards for buildings and green cities, to
preserve our natural resources and environment. The green roofs save 25% of the power.
Therefore, the idea of green roofs and heat insulation plants has been implemented in most
of our projects, residential parks, and squares,” he said.
“Port Saeed Park also considered in this criteria, where people can enjoy open parks with
facilities made out of recycled materials. It is expected to be a place for social interaction,
activities, comfort, relaxation and fun in the downtown,” he added.
Moreover, the municipality used innovative alternative solar energy system, in addition to
LED technology in lighting, which increases in the efficiency of the operating system.
The project is located in Port Saeed in nearly 25000 square meters and consists of green
spaces, which can be used as seats or multi-use outdoor herbal theatre. It also includes
shaded walking tracks, seats and grounds, which can be used for any type of events and
games in the open air.
