Dubai — Dubai Investments Park (DIP), the largest integrated commercial, industrial & residential community in the Middle East and wholly-owned by Dubai Investments PJSC (DI), has spent over Dh4 billion in the last 17 years aimed at building and elevating its infrastructure to world-class standards.

As of date, DIP offers 140km of internal road network, highly-sustainable power and water supply with Dewa, well-connected telecommunications network meeting the latest global standards, district cooling services across the entire business park, and 130km of fresh water network supply for irrigation and fire-fighting.

The infrastructural growth within DIP continues to transform the business park into a self-contained city-within-a-city. This perfectly complements DIP’s strategic location and proximity to Jebel Ali Port and Al Maktoum International Airport, business districts and arterial roads making it one of the most sought-after developments for tenants and businesses.

Since its inception, DIP has attracted over 4,500 companies across a wide array of sectors, offering a range of medium to light industries across aluminium, steel, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, textiles, plastics, oil & gas, construction, building materials and contracting sectors.

Omar Al Mesmar, general manager of DIP, said: “Since it was conceptualised, we saw DIP as one of the best planned and operated developments in the region. With an integral population of 90,000 people, about 25,000 people driving in an out every day for work, six schools catering to over 5,700 students, 225 plots accommodating over 65,000 labourers, we are a city-within-a-city, and proud to offer quality infrastructure to our tenants and businesses.”

He added: “Not only for the residents, but our world-class infrastructure and road network enables connectivity to the regional and international transport linkages resulting in speedy access to potential markets in the neighbouring emirates and the wider region, which makes the DIP an ideal investment destination for local and international businesses.”

The infrastructure also includes well-connected public transport as also day-to-day necessities such as supermarkets, fuel station, shopping centres, ATMs, mosques and recreational options. Apart from this, DIP also offers other essential services including medical centres, educational institutions besides hotels and furnished apartments catering to different market segments for both business as well as leisure travellers.
