DUBAI PLANS A NEW TECHNOLOGY DISTRICT TO BECOME A LIVING LABORATORY FOR INNOVATION

A new urban tech district is planned for the Creekside of Al Jaddaf area in Dubai. Developed by URB, the district aims to generate over four thousand jobs in urban technologies, education, and training, while also welcoming entrepreneurs to encourage a collaborative tech ecosystem. The district will provide facilities for training, research, conferences, business incubations, shared-desk spaces, and dedicated offices. It will also be home to an urban tech institute, which hopes to drive innovation by investing in applied research and by enabling public-private partnerships.

The concept behind the development revolved around the idea that innovation and research centers such as these can inform the evolution of future cities. The tech-enabled urban district seeks to provide solutions to challenges in food availability, energy production, water harvesting, and zero-waste management. It also aims to develop more equitable living conditions by integrating technologies in the planning of cities, while also addressing environmental challenges and the threats of climate change.

The development is planned to become a net zero-carbon district, while also helping partner businesses reduce their carbon footprint. Each business in the district is expected to enroll in a tenant zero carbon engagement program, which hopes to tackle emissions by raising collective awareness and optimizing operational performance. The design of the buildings uses passive and active strategies for reducing the overall energy demand of the building. To provide occupational efficiency, safety, and security, the indoor lighting and temperature are automatically adjusted by sensors that monitor variables like the number of occupants in a room, time of day, and exterior weather.
