In pictures: Projects that didn’t happen for Dubai

With the Expo 2020 excitement, a lot of projects that were proposed back in the boom days are back on the agenda such as Zaha Hadid’s Opus Tower and Habtoor Leighton’s Bluewaters Interchange project.

Yet there are some projects that have remained on hold for a number of years now and it is interesting to know what will become of them. Here, we’ve made a list of buildings that have yet to make it back in the picture.

These include David Fisher’s rotating tower, the Arabian Canal, the Hydropolis Underwater Hotel and Resort, the carbon-neutral Ziggurat pyramid and another underwater hotel called the World Discus Hotel, which is partly submerged under the sea.
