Emaar Properties announces first project at Expo site


The Dubai government expects the World Expo win to boost trade and tourism in the emirate and boost business.


December 15, 2013 10:27 by

Dubai’s largest property developer, Emaar Properties, on Thursday announced a joint venture project with Dubai World Central (DWC) to build hotels, malls and golf course communities close to the emirate’s 2020 World Expo site.

The project is the first development plans announced after Dubai won the rights in November to host the 2020 World Expo, beating competition from the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo, Yekaterinburg in Russia and Izmir in Turkey in a vote by members of the world fair body.

Emaar did not specify the value or financing plans for the project.

The project will be jointly developed by DWC, which is the logistics complex where the Expo site will be built, and Emaar, the firms announced in a joint statement.

Spread over 13.63 million square metres, the project’s first phase will include a golf course villa community, several hotels, a high-end shopping mall, leisure attractions and a business hub.

The master plan for the joint venture project is currently being finalised, the statement added.

The Dubai government expects the World Expo win to boost trade and tourism in the emirate and boost business.

However, some developers and analysts have warned that it could trigger another real estate bubble similar to the one that burst in 2008-2010, when the global financial crisis caused Dubai property prices to crash by more than 50 per cent.
