Dubai World Central (DWC) has been renamed Dubai South, pursuant to Law No. 11 of 2015 issued by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
DWC will remain the administrative authority for Dubai South.
The centrepiece of the 145-sq-km master-planned development is the Al Maktoum International Airport, which will become the world’s largest once all components are completed.
“Over the decades, Dubai’s leadership and its people have worked together to transform the emirate into one of the world’s most desirable destinations,” said Shaikh Ahmad Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation (DACC). “A vibrant economy, excellent roads, landmark buildings and attractive recreational facilities are outstanding accomplishments, but they are the means to a higher end, which is to facilitate the happiness of people.
“The Government of Dubai has been working to build a new destination — which we are naming today Dubai South — where individuals can empower themselves to achieve their legitimate aspirations. The name is iconic and will become instantly recognisable for years to come.
“Dubai South is the emirate’s flagship urban project that will set benchmarks for the rest of the emirate in terms of manifesting the themes of happiness as set out in Dubai Plan 2021.”
According to DACC, Dubai South aims to change the fundamental concept of howa community is built and what it stands for. It further stated that the city’s ecosystem is expected to generate more than half a million jobs and sustain a total population twice that number.
The venue will be host World Expo 2020 and the Dubai Airshow.
