Emaar to begin work on DWC Golf District in 2017

Posted on 6th August 2015

Emaar will begin work on the much awaited DWC Golf District in 2017, according to an anonymous source close to the project.

The Dubai-headquartered developer is said to have signed an agreement with Dubai World Central (DWC) in December 2013, to develop an integrated urban centre and golf destination within the world’s first purpose-built ‘aerotropolis’.

The rumoured development will occupy an area of 1,360 hectares, with the first phase of the project to include a golf-course villa community, several hotels, a high-end shopping mall, leisure attractions, and a business hub that promotes youth entrepreneurship, according to constructionweekonline news report.

The source told Construction Week: “[DWC Golf District] had not commenced since the signing, but Emaar is looking to begin its work on the project by 2017.”

DWC is the world’s largest greenfield airport city. At its centre sits Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC), which once completed, will have the capacity to handle 160-million passengers and 12-million tonnes of cargo annually.

Construction Week invited Emaar to comment on its alleged involvement with DWC Golf District, but the developer said that it would not respond to rumours or market speculation.
