Fujairah Building Boom Includes Commercial Buildings

In the last article in the Fujairah Building Boom series I posted a map in order to point out the amazing growth that is happening in the Al Faseel suburb of Fujairah.

While the city has historically developed around the long main street, the growth of the Fujairah Port is meaning massive commercial and residential growth in the suburb of Faseel as it rapidly spreads towards the port.

As you drive down Kuwait Road towards the corniche there are buildings going up on both sides of this highway.

This photograph depicts two of the many buildings going up beside this highway which will have largely a commercial purpose—businesses, banks and the like.

Image: New commercial buildings on the left of Kuwait Road as you are driving east (towards the corniche). As with all of the high-rise buildings in this construction area, there will be good views both of the beach and the Hajar mountains.
