The Rubicon Group Holding has announced an ambitious project located in Aqaba, Jordan. Called the Red Sea Astrarium, it is going to be a 184 acre themed entertainment resort. Architectural firm Callison has been assigned the job to develop the master plan and create a world class destination resort. Paramount Recreation and CBS will collaborate with Rubicon on the luxury resort. At the core of the design will be a Star Trek inspired attraction. Liz Kalodner, EVP and general manager of CBS Consumer Products expressed happiness on the occasion as it would be the first, unique, interactive Star Trek property in this part of the world.
The project would be unique in many ways as the themed entertainment destination will not simply be a fantasy world but will serve as a model for green energy. The latest cutting edge technologies will be incorporated in the project to make the project sustainable on renewable energy. The Red Sea Astrarium will also be host to a ‘Future’ pavilion where businesses, students and attendees will have the opportunity to learn about alternative energy sources. They would get to know everything about solar and wind energy and greywater harvesting.
The project is considered important for the region as it has the potential to generate employment for more than 500 high-skilled workers in the local community. The promoters would help train the people for different jobs. In terms of entertainment the themed park will deliver some multi-sensory experiences including a state-of-the-art space flight adventure. Randa S. Ayoubi, CEO of Rubicon Group Holding called it a dream come true for the entire RGH family. It is a great opportunity for them to be at the helm of affairs of such an important project in the region.
