Dubai World Central: World's Biggest Mega Transportation Project!

Dubai does everything in a BIG way! Dubai World Central (DWC) is no exception and is currently the largest and most spectacular Mega Transportation Project being developed anywhere in the world! DWC is an entire Mega Community built around what will be the largest airport in the world, Al Maktoum International Airport. This airport will be:

'The world’s largest passenger and cargo hub with a design capacity of over 12 million tonnes of cargo a year and in excess of 120 million passengers annually and capable of handling all new generation aircraft, including the A380 superjumbo. The airport, which will be 10 times the size of the current Dubai International Airport and Dubai Cargo Village combined, will have six parallel runways and as many concourses with a 91 metre high control tower that will be an aviation landmark and tallest freestanding ATC tower in the Middle East,' according to DWC.

This Mega Airport will also contain a wide variety of hotels and shopping malls as well as state-of-the-art maintenance facilities which will be used by the entire Gulf.

All of this however is just one part of this massive project. DWC will also be home to:

> Dubai Logistics City (DLC). 'DLC is designed as the region's unchallenged logistics hub catering to some two billion people throughout the Middle East, Indian Sub-continent, Africa and the CIS, all within three-to-four hours flying time from Dubai. The project encompasses all transportation modes, logistics and value added services, such as kitting and assembly, in a single bonded and free zone environment,' according to DWC. In addition, Logistics City will offer office buildings and industrial facilities for all the businesses wanting to locate there.

> DWC Aviation City. An entire city focused on the aviation industry designed to 'bring together at one place, the best of companies, businesses, consultancy majors, MRO organizations, professionals and skill sets from around the world to cater to the growing aviation demands of the region and the world at large,' according to DWC. Wow! An entire city built for the aviation industry! Dubai does it again!

> DWC Residential City. A city designed to eventually house 250,000 which will include a mix of 5 to 10 storey mid-cost apartment blocks. The city will also include 4-Star and 3-Star hotels, shopping malls, schools & hospitals.

> DWC Commercial City. This will be a major business hub of DWC and contain more than 850 Towers which will be home to a wide variety of businesses. DWC Commercial City is expected to eventually employ 130,000. Upscale homes and villas will also be offered at Commercial City.

> The Staff Village. This village is designed to house 40,000 blue collar workers employed at DWC. Staff Village will be a very nice and affordable place to live for workers and, in addition to quality housing, will feature: restaurants, shops, sports facilities, open recreational spaces and much more.

> The Golf City. A city that will "enhance Dubai's status as an international golfing destination." Golf City will offer 2,500 homes which will surround the two 18 hole golf courses that will be built there. Driving ranges, putting greens, restaurants, a club house and pro-shop will also be part of Golf City.

> DWC Global Technologies. Created to act as a subsidiary of DWC that is entrusted with the responsibility to facilitate the development and deployment of the entire information technology and telecommunications infrastructure and services for the DWC area.

> Enterprise Park. Another business center of DWC, Enterprise Park will be home to research institutes, alternative technologies, office complexes, conference venues and pavilions; as well as a medium sized Science Park with its own specialized university. The university will have a student population of between 3000-4000 and will be focused on science and technology.

Dubai World Central is one of the most ambitious Mega Projects ever developed! It takes thinking big to a whole new level! Once complete, DWC will be a World Icon and the entire Middle East will benefit greatly from all this fabulous Mega Project will provide!
