Dubai is set to become home to the world’s biggest ‘agritourism’ destination with an ambitious new project.

Architecture firm URB has unveiled plans for the ‘Agri Hub’ complex that will be build in the Middle Eastern nation in the next couple of years.

The complex will not only provide the emirate with food security for the forseeable future, but will also become something of a tourist attraction.

It will allow local UAE farmers to sell products directly from their farms to visitors who stop by to browse eco-friendly shops, restaurants and educational offerings.

The Agri Hub is set to begin construction next year, and will require an estimated 10,000 workers to complete it. The opening date is set for 2030.

Dubai will soon be home to the world???s biggest agritourism destination - the Agri Hub by URB. The aim of the project, which it is said will provide 10,000 jobs, is to ensure the emirate???s food security while sparking tourism by providing entertainment and adventure. ???Dubai???s rural and agricultural rich communities are best positioned to become a global benchmark for agritourism,??? Baharash Bagherian, chief executive of URB said in a statement. Bagherian also described the Agri Hub as a ???highly attractive and activity-rich environment, which will transform Dubai into the world???s best rural visitor attraction in the world.??? At the new attraction, which is set to open in 2030, local farmers will be able to sell products directly from their farms alongside eco-friendly shopping, dining and edutainment offerings. ???Beyond becoming a new tourism experience in the countryside and wilderness of Dubai, the project will also promote greater health, well-being, and prosperity for rural local inhabitants,??? Bagherian added, saying that Agri Hub will ultimately serve as an ???innovative blueprint??? for decarbonised rural tourism hubs of the future. Agri Hub will also include 100 percent water recycling, green transit systems, bio-saline agriculture and on-site zero waste management. The exact location of the new development will be confirmed in 2024, with construction due to begin in 2025.
