Though maybe not the worlds firstbio-dome, if all goes as planned in Dubai, in 2020, the Mall of the World will be the worlds first domed city. According to aarticleDubai Holdingplans on construction of an entire city within a dome climate controlled housing of hundreds of buildings, thousands of hotel rooms, and a transportation system planned to be completed by 2020.

In communication withTech Insider, Dubai Holding COO Morgan Parker said, We are making good progress with the planning and thoughtful approach to the development of Mall of the World It sits at the heart of Dubai and will be critical to the Emirates economic growth.

For the sake of comparison, theMall of Americasits at 5.6 million square feet while the Mall of the World is planned to take up an outstanding 48 million square feet. Hundreds of specialists, architects, engineers, andurban plannersare assigned to the project. Drafting and mapping 33 roads, over a million square feet of walkways, with additionalbike pathsbusesand gondolas (why this qualifies as aGas2article) including what would be the largest indoor theme park the world has ever seen.

The mall/town will consist of retail, residential, office, hospitality, and entertainment spaces making up approximately 300 buildings to accommodate an estimated 180 million visitors a year, according to Dubai Holding.

Sounding more like something off the page of a sci-fi novel, skeptics could see the domed city as being a potential disaster of Titanic proportions. Just the upkeep alone on such a gargantuan structure would require monumental amounts of time and manpower. Dubai is home to such an economic letdown the Dubai Islands were completed in 2008 but have yet to fulfill their hyped economic and developmental potential.

However, Dubai is home to the worlds tallest building, Burj Khalifa, and is aiming to eclipse that record by 500 feet with Jeddah Tower by 2019.

For a sneak peek at the endeavor, more stats, bangin music, and sweet CGI, heres the promo video:

Note the trolley lines and walkable streets. Those are a nice sustainable plus, and things that are hard to sell in the hot desert environment of Dubai without climate control.
