The beachfront space where by Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Seashore Lodge are positioned was beforehand named Chicago Seashore. The lodge is positioned on an island of reclaimed land 280 meters offshore of the beach of the previous Chicago Seashore Lodge.[eleven] The locale’s name experienced its origins in the Chicago Bridge & Iron Firm which at one time welded large floating oil storage tankers on the website.
The outdated name persisted immediately after outdated Lodge was demolished in 1997. Dubai Chicago Seashore Lodge remained as the Public Job Name for the design section of Burj Al Arab Lodge until finally Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum announced the new name.[twelve]
