Dubai World Central’s (DWC) Aviation District has announced a AED 120 million plan to develop 45,000 square meters of new aerospace supply chain facilities.
The project, which is scheduled to be completed by the first quarter of next year, will feature a multi-purpose building for tenants that are a part of the aerospace supply chain. Catering specifically to small to medium enterprises in the global MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) sector, the buildings will comprise front offices and warehouse facilities.
Investors and MRO companies interested in the project are invited to access details from DWC Aviation District’s stand at the MRO Middle East show being held at the Dubai Trade Centre from February 2-3, 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.
