What is Dubai South and where should you invest?

Branded “The City of You”, Dubai South is an ambitious project started under the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. Emerging as one of Dubai’s flagships project, Dubai South has quickly become a central hub for major investments, both privately owned and governmental. The entire south area of Dubai is currently being developed around the individual’s happiness, thus incorporating a unique concept.

The royal vision is reflected in the themes of Dubai Plan 2021, which apply to Dubai South as follows:

  • To become a city of happy, creative and empowered people
  • To become the preferred place to live, work and invest
  • To create an inclusive and cohesive society
  • To build a smart and sustainable city
  • To become a pivotal hub in the global economy

Launched in 2006, Dubai South will be able to host 1 million population, plus every conceivable kind of business and industry and create 500,000 jobs, thus becoming Dubai’s most important economic platform.

Apart from that, Dubai South is also home to the world’s largest airport in the making – the Al Maktoum International Airport and will famously host landmark events such as World Expo 2020 and the Dubai Airshow.

EXPO 2020

With an international audience of 25 million visitors and bringing together more than 180 nations, Expo 2020 makes up for one of the most compelling reasons to invest in the Dubai real estate market. There is no doubt that Dubai will make a show out of the most anticipated event in the recent years and plans to invest 2$ to 4$ billion to develop the infrastructure around the hosting area.

Al Maktoum International Airport

The airport opened on June 27, 2010 for cargo operations followed by passenger flights in October 2013.

Once completed, this airport will be the world’s largest global gateway with capacity for more than 160 million passengers per year. It will also serve as a multi-modal logistics hub for 12 million tonnes of freight.

Jebel Ali Port

Jebel Ali Port operated by DP World UAE Region, is the largest marine terminal in the Middle East and the flagship facility of DP World’s portfolio of over 65 marine terminals across six continents.

The Residential District

Dubai South is planned as a master city offering world-class community living within an urban environment. An innovative concept in urban living, it aims to create a city based on the happiness and wellbeing of people. Re-imaging urban spaces, the master-planned communities, in the Residential District, will be distinguished by their world-class design, superior build quality, and a wide range of lifestyle amenities, with all aspects of life from work and play to fitness and education available within a 10-minute walking radius. No wonder, Dubai’s giants developers Emaar, Damac, Azizi and MAG are all present in the area.


In proximity to the Al Maktoum International Airport, the largest airport in the world when complete, the Expo 2020 Dubai site, as well as the free zones and Business Park of Dubai South, the Residential District is seamlessly connected to key landmarks in the city through arterial roads, and the metro.

HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s vision:

“Our objective is to make our people happy. There is no delaying happiness”.

District 2020

Expo 2020 Dubai’s legacy development, District 2020 is set to create a new urban experience and become one of the key contributors to the emirate’s long term economic development. District 2020 is part of Dubai’s strategy to reuse 80% of Expo site infrastructure. The District will include 65,000 square metres of residential space and 135,000 square metres of commercial space, in a location that will be home to innovation, educational, cultural and entertainment facilities as well as a dedicated conference and exhibition center, according to an Expo 2020 statement.

Leveraging a strategic location, connecting both sea and air mega ports, Dubai South is emerging a self-sustained living and business destination, to empower companies, individuals and families to grow and prosper.
