Dubai Maritime City Steams Forward

Wednesday, December 21, 2011
Dubai’s vision as a global maritime hub took another major step forward with the launch of the mixed-use Business District at Dubai Maritime City (DMC) under the patronage of HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman, Dubai World.
HE Mohammed Al Shaibani, the Director General of HH The Ruler’s Court, Government of Dubai, Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman Drydocks and Maritime World, senior company executives, government officials, representatives of developers participating in the project, and special invitees, were present the grand inaugural ceremony on DMC’s 227-hectare man-made peninsula between the Drydocks World and Port Rashid.

They are: Swift Development’s Swiftships Towers, which are office towers, Sheth Developers with the Project ‘Iris Mist’Hotel Apartments & Residences, Kensington Global with a budget hotel Kensington Krystal, Sanali Global’s Sanali Aquamarine Residential Apartments and Dubai Investments Real Estate with a six star hotel.

It will serve as the main business growth engine of DMC, accounting for nearly 90% of its projected total income in 2013. It includes a maritime centre, harbour offices and residences, a marina, an academic quarter and a hotel.
