Dubai’s Damac is working with a Canadian company on bringing an outdoor synthetic ice rink, made out of plastic, to the desert of the UAE in three years, an official has said. “[It] is an outdoor ice rink made of materials that are exactly treated as though they were ice,” said Ziad El Chaar, managing director of Damac Properties. “This will be ready in three years’ time.” The synthetic rink will be part of Damac’s Akoya development project, which includes villas and mid-rise and high-rise apartments.
