The new Dubai Healthcare City Island is a multifunctional floating complex that focuses on delivering quality healthcare services by combining cutting-edge technology and sustainable design principles. The crescent-shaped island with Islamic geometric design elements will be divided into five levels, representing a self-contained complex with its own underwater transportation system, luxurious residences for patients seeking treatment, as well as educational and development facilities.
According to Design Boom, the emirate has endorsed a futuristic approach to transportation: Underwater infrastructure, including a monorail system and electric vehicles, will make the island pedestrian-free. They will move on suspension bridges immersed in green spaces.
In the center of the island there will be a huge skyscraper with an area of one million square meters, divided into two parts. On the 670,000-square-meter base, Kalbod Studio architects provided an exhibition hall, a research and development department, a science and technology park, a library, an exhibition of digital achievements. It will be followed by 14 towers with medical functions, and 24 hotels will be located at the two ends of the island to symmetrically frame the core of the skyscraper. All buildings are planned to be equipped with terraces and roofs with a variety of vegetation to provide sufficient shade, light and natural ventilation. In addition, they will help improve air quality in Dubai.
