Dubai South Area Guide

Nothing is impossible
“We, in the UAE, have no such word as “impossible”; it does not exist in our lexicon. Such a word is used by the lazy and the weak, who fear challenges and progress. When one doubts his potential and capabilities as well as his confidence, he will lose the compass that leads him to success and excellence, thus failing to achieve his goal. I require you, youth, to insist on number one.”
HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE

Dubai South covers almost 145 sq. km., double the size of Hong Kong Island. It is a free zone area, while the residential district will be linked with key tourist spots in the city and metro stations. The metro line is scheduled to arrive in 2020.

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.
