Dubai renamed a major district
In the emirate of Dubai a large district Al Minhad got a new name.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has ordered the renaming of an entire area of the emirate of Al Minhad. The district has been renamed Hind City.
“Hind City” will include four zones: Hind 1, Hind 2, Hind 3 and Hind 4, with a total area of 83.9 square kilometers. The area is mostly inhabited by citizens of the United Arab Emirates and is connected to highways such as Emirates Road, Al Ain Road and Jebel Ali-Lehbab Road.
In December 2022, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum approved the second phase of the Dubai Master Plan 2040. It includes several projects as part of 10 key initiatives.
These include beautification and landscaping of urban neighborhoods and public spaces, development of the real estate sector, farming, preservation of urban heritage and development of the pedestrian network, as well as development of the “20 Minute City” development plan.
The ruler of Dubai specified that in the future, the city will be greener and more pedestrian-friendly, and will also benefit from the development of agriculture. The city will have five major centers, two of which already exist and three new ones to be built in the future.
A comprehensive strategy for Dubai’s real estate sector through 2040 will help balance supply and demand, achieve sustainable development and increase investor confidence. In turn, the task of agriculture will be to ensure food security.
Urban spaces will become more attractive to the population. Residential neighborhoods are planned to develop the principle of integrated street. The main goal of the master plan is to make Dubai a better city to live in.
