The UAE is recognized internationally for its ambitious development plans and cutting-edge property projects. So let us take a look at projects whose construction has just begun and those that are in the final phases of construction.

Jumeirah Golf Estates (JGE) located off Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road has been touted as one of the most prestigious residential golf developments. Divided into districts like The Whispering Pines and Flame Tree Ridge, this gated community of three to five-bedroom homes offers fabulous views of the Fire and Earth golf courses. The Tuscan-style villas have stone facades and terracotta roofs that lend the properties an old world charm.

The City of Lights on Abu Dhabi's Al Reem Island is a mixed-use development of residential and commercial projects which will include office and residential towers, commercial spaces, hotels and service suites, marina facilities, parks and other amenities, including a waterfront promenade.

The Louvre Abu Dhabi's dome is visible as one crosses the Saadiyat bridge. Once the construction is completed, this ambitious project will house some of the most beautiful artistic treasures from around the globe.

The famous Shangri-La will find a place on the Palm Jumeirah. This project is all set to be the last word in luxury, and will include the Palm Tower, a residential complex along with the 52-level hotel. The Palm Tower will be directly linked to the much-anticipated Nakheel Mall.

Four Seasons Hotel on Al Maryah Island is all set to make its mark on the UAE's hospitality industry when it opens in 2015. With 190 deluxe rooms and 125 apartments, it combines elegance with state-of-the-art facilities.

With views of the Dubai Fountain and in one of the poshest locations on earth, the Burj Vista in Downtown Dubai, with 20 and 65 floors, is going to be one of the most coveted addresses in Dubai.

Handy Hints:

• Al Reem's City of Lights will consist of residential and commercial towers

• Jumeirah Golf Estates features Tuscan-style homes with golf course views

• Burj Vista is poised to become one of Dubai's coveted residential addresses
