Dubai World Central (DWC) has revealed that $4.6bn has been invested to date in developing infrastructure, including $544.6m in the residential district of the project.

A strategic initiative of the Dubai government - and billed as the Middle East's first 'aerotropolis' - DWC covers 140km2 in Jebel Ali, close to Jebel Ali Port.

It will also be linked to Al Maktoum International Airport, which will be able to handle 120 million passengers and 12 million tons of cargo a year upon completion.

"DWC is the the self-sustained airport city of the 21st century which ushers in a new approach to growth for Dubai and the entire region," said Dubai Aviation City Corporation executive chairman Khalifa Al Zaffin.

DWC will be showcasing investment opportunities during its participation at Cityscape Global 2012 from 2 to 4 October at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.
