An ultra-luxury golf community is set to launch in Dubai South.
A US-based luxury real estate developer and operator of private residential club communities, Discovery Land, signed an exclusive agreement with Dubai South, having bought a plot for Dh1 billion ($272 million).
According to a statement, the project will consist of a two-square-kilometre golf community with villas, mansions, an 18-hole golf course, and other exclusive luxuries.
An executive chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation and Dubai South, Khalifa Al Zaffin, said, “The new project reiterates Dubai’s magnificence to international investors and Dubai South’s unique ecosystem and developed infrastructure, which caters to the requirements of businesses and investors alike.”
Dubai has many golf communities like Jumeirah Golf Estates, Emirates Hills, Arabian Ranches and Dubai Hills.
Launched in 2006, Dubai South is an emerging 145 sq km a master-planned city on the outskirts of the emirate.
It is home to Al Maktoum International Airport as well as the Expo 2020 site, which is now being converted into District 2020 after the fair finished last month.
The Natural History Museum located in Abu Dhabi refers to natural rock formations, reflecting towards its objective of engaging the people with the natural world.
District 2020 will become the first 15-minute city in the UAE, a cycle-friendly, traffic-free region of the expanding metropolis.
It will include a 10-kilometre cycling track, an autonomous-vehicle route, interconnected, wide pedestrian paths and a 5km jogging way.
It will also have space for almost 85 new start-ups and small businesses when it opens to its first business tenants by the end of this year.
With almost 15 mid-rise buildings in four groups, the Expo village is starting to welcome new residents.
The chief development and delivery officer for Expo 2020, Ahmed Al-Khatib, said that District 2020 would open “in different stages between now and October”.
