Design district for Dubai

Gulf hotspot aims to become a centre for design

In its relentless drive to rebrand itself as an arts hub, Dubai now aims to become a centre for design, with plans to build a dedicated zone called the Dubai Design District. "The district is expected to become a full-service commercial hub for design industry-related organisations, brands and supporting enterprises within the value chain," according to the website of the Design Days Dubai fair. Institutes for design and a convention centre will also form part of the planned development. The new district, near to the central Business Bay area, will be operated by the Dubai-based conglomerate Tecom Investments, which has invested AED$4bn ($1bn) in the project. Phase one is scheduled for completion by 2015.
