Dubai authorities announced this week that a new integrated facility, Dubai Design District, will be created adjacent to the Business Bay area of Dubai, dedicated to developing the Emirate’s fashion, design and luxury sectors. The district is expected to become a full service commercial hub for design industry-related organisations, brands, and supporting enterprises within the value chain, a statement by Dubai Government said.
The Dubai Design District will feature a custom built creative community that will encompass purpose built commercial and retail facilities for established and emerging designers, design institutes, waterfront promenade, convention centre and event venues and related academic institutions.
Dubai Design District will be a vital part of the strategic Tourism Vision 2020 vision and it will provide an additional key element in Dubai’s bid to host Expo 2020.
