Emaar has revealed its new project, Dubai Stars, which will be a walk of fame along Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard in Downtown Dubai, in honour of celebrities and influencers from all over the world.
Downtown Dubai will be home to more than 400 stars in the first phase, with tribute being paid to personalities who have positively influenced the world through their work in various fields including music, film, art, architecture, sports, and literature, as well as social influencers.
The project will kick off with a global online campaign asking people to nominate their favourite celebrities and influencers for the first 400 stars to be featured at Dubai Stars.
The first phase will be unveiled in October at an event to be attended by the 400 featured celebrities who will launch their stars.
Emaar has reported in a statement that Dubai Stars at its completion will have more than 10,000 stars, about four times the number of stars than the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Emaar Properties managing director Ahmad Al Matrooshi said in a statement: "With Dubai Stars we are highlighting our commitment to making Dubai the best city in the world, and to promoting arts, culture and sports by saluting the stars, whose contributions inspire the world."
