The first handovers of freehold homes in Dubai South — the “city within a city” — is set to roll before the year end, with up to 800 units being delivered in this phase. These will all be from private developers, as Dubai creates a destination where people can live and work without having to “fight the traffic everyday”.
Currently, 200 plots are with private developers, and many of these are well advanced in the construction phase. It will be among these that the first units are being readied for delivery. Unlike other masterplanned developments, Dubai South is unique in that its anchor will be the Al Maktoum International Airport, well on its way to being the world’s largest. The airport and air-side facilities take up 65 per cent of Dubai South, but “there’s still plenty left to create all of the other aspects of a city,” said Mohammad Al Awadhi, Vice-President for Real Estate with the master-developer. “It can’t be any other way when you are talking about 145 square kilometres in all for Dubai South.”
“We want to be where people want to work and live because it’s affordable for them — right from the blue-collar worker affiliated to the aviation and logistics industries to lower and mid-management professionals. And even senior professionals — and we have the residential options for all. It has to be as self-contained as possible,” said an official.
