Meldman and Al Zaffin signing the agreement in the presence of Sheikh Ahmed.

Dubai South (the rebranded Dubai World Central), one of the largest single-urban master developments focusing on aviation, logistics and real estate, has signed an agreement with Discovery Land, a renowned US-based luxury real estate developer and operator of private residential club communities, for the development of a luxurious 2-sq-km golf community.

Discovery Land has purchased a plot of land worth AED1 billion ($272.2 million) within Dubai South towards development of the spacious golf community.

To be built up to the highest standards, the premium community development will boast mansions, villas, a 18-hole golf course as well as other premier amenities on completion, thus becoming one of the top golf course communities in the region.

The agreement was signed by Khalifa Al Zaffin, Executive Chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation and Dubai South, and Michael Meldman, Founder and Chairman of Discovery Land, in the presence of Chairman of the Dubai Aviation City Corporation, Dubai South Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum as well as other senior executives. 

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Al Zaffin expressed delight at the partnership with a reputable international developer like Discovery Land that enjoys a great track record of delivering luxurious communities across the US and other countries.

Dubai South was launched as a Dubai Government project in 2006, representing an emerging 145-sq-km master-planned city.

Positioned as a global commercial and residential hub and a major contributor to the social and economic growth of Dubai and the UAE, Dubai South offers business-friendly free-zone benefits and a living environment with a diverse range of mixed-use and residential communities to suit different lifestyles.
