Dubai South’s Brisk Business
Meanwhile Dubai South, the largest single-urban master development focusing on aviation, logistics and real estate, ended 2021 on a high note by recording several outstanding achievements across its different divisions, which includes attracting new clients and companies, the selling out of projects, signing top-level partnerships and launching unique projects.
The total number of companies now operating out of Dubai South reached 4,600, attracting more than 700 new companies. Moreover, the total number of people working out of Dubai South will reach 20,848 individuals by the end of 2021.
Pulse Beachfront Launched
As the destination where the Expo is being held, the Dubai South master-development has been garnering all the attention. But, away from the Expo, the ‘city-within-a-city’ has been doing well on other counts too.
For one, it has created more residential options to choose in Dubai, by delivering 1,400 apartments and 240 townhouses at its ‘The Pulse’ community.’
“Following the inauguration of Expo 2020 Dubai, and based on popular demand, The Pulse Beachfront was launched, and the company succeeded in selling out phases one and two, with the final phase due to launch in Q1, 2022,” Dubai South said in a statement. Plots sold to build villas were also sold out.
