Recently the city has experienced rapid growth, with over $20 billion of foreign investment targeted at a range of developments including: Saraya Aqaba (a resort with a man made lagoon, luxury hotels, and villas); Marsa Zayed (the largest real estate project in Jordan's history); and Aqaba Port relocation (includes expansion to the container terminal).
