Dubai’s Urban Tech District will become a living laboratory where innovation & entrepreneurship in urban technology come together to thrive.
Located on the Creekside of Al Jaddaf area in Dubai, designed by URB, the urban tech district will create 4000 jobs in green urban tech, education & training. It will also be home to venture capitals to provide the fuel for entrepreneurs, thus empowering a unique collaborative urban tech eco system.
Urban Tech will be at the core of all future cities. Tech-enabled urban developments seek to provide solutions to the challenges created by urbanisation in various areas such as zero-mile food production, food security, affordable & scalable renewable energy, low energy demand water harvesting, zero-waste management, and waste to energy solutions. These are just some of the many challenges our cities our facing.
Baharash Bagherian CEO of URB, the company behind the project said: “Dubai is best positioned to lead the Urban Tech Transformation than any other city in the world. The Urban Tech District will be a new global tech hub for urban innovation. With a total of 140,000 square metres of built up area, it will be the world’s largest urban tech district. Thus making Dubai the centre for urban innovation.”
The new district will provide facilities for conferences, training, research, seminars, business incubation as well as various amenities. The building will also offset all its embodied carbon emissions from construction & operation. As a net zero carbon district, the development will help to reduce the carbon footprint of its partner businesses, thus enabling a low-carbon workforce.
