It will be situated near the creek in the Al Jaddaf region.
Dubai Urban Tech District, a new initiative by the UAE-based company URB, will bring 4,000 employment to the emirate of Dubai and will generate jobs in the fields of green urban technology, education, and training. It will be the biggest urban technology area in the whole globe.
According to estimates, the global urban tech sector is currently worth $158 billion and will expand quickly over the following ten years. The issues posed by urbanization in a variety of sectors, including zero-mile food production, food security, inexpensive and scalable renewable energy, low energy demand water harvesting, zero-waste management, and waste-to-energy solutions, are being addressed through tech-enabled urban projects.
Dubai is in the finest position of any city in the world to lead the Urban Tech transformation. A brand-new technological epicenter for urban innovation will be the Urban Tech District. It will be the largest urban tech district in the world, covering 140,000 square meters in total. Dubai will thereafter become a hub for urban innovation, according to URB CEO BaharashBagherian.
The new district will include conference rooms, training grounds, research labs, lecture rooms, business incubators, and other attractions. All of the building’s embodied carbon emissions during construction and use will also be offset. A low-carbon workforce will be made possible by the development’s role as a net zero-carbon district in lowering the carbon footprint of its partner companies.
The area will make it possible for urban-tech solutions to develop on a much greater scale and will also provide innovators working on some of the most important sustainable city concerns access to funding possibilities. The area will offer chances for a new generation of creative businesses in need of a platform to expand quickly.
The urban tech institute, which will nurture the subsequent generation of urban tech leaders, will also be located in the district.
