Fujairah Building Boom Includes Commercial and Apartment Towers

Entering the first roundabout coming into Fujairah from Dubai, and continuing in the same direction, one drives onto the main street—Hamad bin Abdulla Road.

One of the noticeable sights when you get onto this main drag is the number of high-rise buildings under construction on the left-hand side.

The picture, (which is taken looking the other way, towards Dubai) shows two new buildings in mid-construction and one further up, which is nearing completion.

There are several other buildings in process along this strip that are not in frame. Some of them will be exclusively for commercial usage; others will have a mix of commercial function (shops on the lower level/s) and accommodation.

That's all very good but what about electricity? So manny buildings are already finished and not enough electricity in the city, so we must live in the hotels for so many months.

Thanks for your comment about having to stay longer in the hotels.

Can you tell us more about the problem? Electricity and other factors?
