The district will comprise 47 million square feet (sq.ft) of gross floor area (GFA) along Dubai’s Shaikh Zayed Road and will introduce new international standards in city planning that are able to balance requirements from an environmental, urban development and societal perspective, conceptualising His Highness’s vision of Dubai’s future development and evolution, wam reported today.

The Jumeirah Central masterplan is a product of the collaborative work of over 19 government and private agencies, international experts and consultants under the leadership of Dubai Holding over the last two years.

Jumeirah Central will have smart world-leading infrastructure that includes a multi-modal transport network, environmentally-friendly transport options and aerial gondolas.
