Dubai World Central’s (DWC) Aviation District has announced the development of new aerospace supply chain facilities.
Located at the DWC Aviation District, the development will include three facilities spread across an area of 45,000 square meters. Estimated to cost Dh120 million, the project will feature a multi-purpose building for tenants that are a part of the aerospace supply chain.
The project is being designed and developed by DWC, and scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2016.
Speaking ahead of MRO Middle East 2015, Tahnoon Saif, Vice President, Aviation District, said: “This project marks the latest milestone in our journey to create value-added infrastructure for players across the aerospace supply chain spectrum. The location enjoys several benefits such as unrivalled access to both the Al Maktoum International Airport and the Jebel Ali Port. There are also productivity and efficiency benefits arising from the ‘cluster effect’ with suppliers and collaborators present in proximity within the DWC Aviation District.”
The DWC Aviation District is a 6.7 square kilometre master planned district and adjacent to Al Maktoum International Airport. Beyond its aviation focus, the district will also offer well-defined zones for sectors such as hospitality, education, research and development, and mixed-used development.
