Since its inception in 2006, Dubai South has earned its place in the world’s top 5 best communities to live in, in the infrastructure and transport category. Projected to sustain a population of 1 million people and to create more than 500,000 jobs, Dubai South has benefited from an on-going government investment in infrastructure projects and has become the home of Al Maktoum International Airport (the largest airport in the making), Expo 2020 and Dubai Metro’s Red line, which will add an immense capital growth value to the area, once completed. This master planned “aerotropolis” has acted like a magnet for investors, developers and home buyers who saw the potential and took the opportunity. The first two residential communities will be completed by 2019 and are expected to host affordable apartments and townhouses, with prices starting from 300,000 AED for a studio. However, land prices along the Dubai ‘s Route 2020 are likely to surge, as the development pace picks up and the demand increases.
