England to have its own ‘Palm Jumeirah’

: Wednesday, August 13 - 2014 @ 02:31

A UK-based real estate tycoon has looked to Dubai for inspiration to further develop England’s own version of Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah on the south coast of England. Eddie Mitchell, 59, a resident in the area and former head of football club AFC Bournemouth, has unveiled a proposal to transform Sandbanks into a holiday destination with a touch of Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah. Sandbanks in the county of Dorset, known as a millionaires’ haven, is already home to a few hotels and some of the world’s priciest beach-side homes, according to a Daily Mail report. Under the proposal, a 33-storey sports tower will be built in the area for abseiling, bungee jumping and rock climbing. It will also showcase a seagull-shaped luxury hotel, a marina, an open-air swimming pool, a theatre, some restaurants, casinos, shops, apartments and a helicopter landing pad.
