Tremors Felt In Dubai. Turns Out It Was Not An Earthquake But Dubai Pearl’s Demolition 

On Monday morning, social media apps like Twitter and Instagram were filled with people posting about tremors felt in Dubai. Citizens of the city reported facing tremors, especially people working in Dubai Media City. After some time, the National Center of Meteorology (NCM) denied the reports of the earthquake. Then the news of the famous Dubai Pearl demolition went viral, which finally put people’s earthquake worries to rest. 

Dubai Pearl’s Demolition Resulted In People Feeling Tremors

The news of Dubai Pearl’s demolition soon spread across social media platforms, which helped people know the reality. Dubai’s 22 million square foot project, Dubai Pearl, is being demolished, and people around that area felt the tremors. Unaware of the demolition, people thought the tremors were caused by an earthquake. People in Dubai Media City, Knowledge Village, and Internet City felt the tremors the most, as the project is located nearby. 

People looked outside their windows and saw smoke coming out of Dubai Pearl’s site. Many social media users then began posting pictures of the demolition taken from their houses and workplaces. Many people shared their experiences with tremors and how they immediately called their loved ones to check on them.

A Project Featuring Four Towers In Dubai

Dubai Pearl’s demolition had already begun in November 2022. The project, which was first announced in 2002, called for a 73-story building, but it has been on indefinite hold since 2009 due to a lack of investors in the residential skyscraper. It was designed to house 30,000 people once completed. The $6 billion Dubai Pearl mega-project, which overlooks Palm Jumeirah, is also a possible location for the Dubai Moon, as proposed by Moon World Resorts Inc.

The resort’s lunar surface, surrounded by a “lunar colony,” is expected to provide 2.5 million guests with affordable space tourism on the ground in Dubai each year. Moon Dubai intends to include a boutique ‘Sky Villas,’ which will be known as the private residence at Moon. All 300 of these opulent apartments will be housed within the main building’s disc. All residents will also have access to the exclusive Moon private members’ club.
