Dubai Design District a step closer

March 2015

The Dubai Design District (d3) masterplan development has been formally endorsed by the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority.

The d3 is the newest of Tecom Investments’ freezone business parks – with 11 buildings currently under construction. Once complete, d3 will be a purpose-built environment catering to the full value chain of the design, fashion and luxury industry – and all with the vision of creating a world-class creative community that engages, nurtures and promotes local, regional and global design talent.

The d3’s facilities will include everything from cutting-edge design institutes to residential, hospitality, retail and office space.

Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the vice chairman of Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, who endorsed the d3 masterplan also approved plans to develop and curate a dedicated creative community at d3.

The d3 Creative Community, which will cover around one million sq ft within d3, will act as an incubator for emerging local designers and artists, as well as providing a natural home for art galleries and studios looking to engage directly with the region.
