After five years of delays, Dubai World Central (DWC) has floated the main construction tender for its staff village at the Logistics City, according to a source close to the project.
“After being put on hold for five years, the main construction tender was floated early this year, with the contract award expected by the end of 2015,” the source told Construction Week.
The staff village at Logistics City is located to the south of the Forwarders’ Area on approximately 62 hectares of land.
The village was proposed initially to provide accommodation to around 52,000 of DWC staff. The average plot coverage for the residential buildings is in the range of 40%.
Dubai Logistics City is the world’s first integrated logistics platform with all transport modes, logistics and value added services, including light manufacturing and assembly, in a single customs bonded and free zone environment.
