About Dubai World Central
Dubai’s location at the crossroads of three continents makes it a perfect stopover for travelers. As the emirate’s logistics and aviation industries take off, Dubai is aiming to be a distribution hub serving the Middle East and beyond. And, visionary strategic projects like Dubai World Central (DWC) are expected to play a vital role in realizing that dream.
Dubai World Central is one of the most significant commercial infrastructure developments ever undertaken in the Middle East. Nearly twice the size of Hong Kong Island, the DWC will transform the region into one of the most powerful global centers for logistics, tourism and commerce. The multi-phased development covers an astounding 140 sq. km and has six clustered zones, all catering to the booming aviation and logistics industries. It is advantageously positioned next to Jebel Ali Port and Free Zone, making sea to air connectivity attainable in less than four hours in ideal conditions – a world beating turnaround time.
The DWC is a self-contained ‘city within a city’ with a workforce of over 900,000 people. To ensure hassle-free connectivity, the development will be serviced by a dedicated light rail system and Dubai Metro, in addition to several high road networks. Equipped with the latest smart technology, Dubai World Central is poised to be the most advanced entity of its type in the world.
