The Dubai South project will eventually house 1 million people with mixed accommodation that includes villas and apartments. The residential district covers 715 hectares of area with many projects scheduled to coincide with Dubai Expo 2020. Other districts have been set aside for: Commerce, Logistics, Aviation, Humanitarianism, Golfing, Exhibitions, and the Al Maktoum International Airport.
The area was previously known as Dubai World Central, a master-planned city centred on the Al Maktoum International Airport, which will become the world’s largest airport upon completion.
Right now Greenfield Community School is the closest to the community, but the number of schools will be added to as residential project is fully developed.
According to media reports, all schools in the area will have fees capped at 30,000 AED.
“We are absolutely strict in our requirement that Dubai South will remain a place where affordability will remain a constant factor. That’s why we want to be directly responsible in controlling that affordability, be it in the cost of land, property and even what people should pay for schools and health care.” More here.
