Smart Dubai, Dubai Culture, Dubai Tourism and Dubai Sports Council will all relocate to Tecom-operated district.

Four major Dubai government agencies announced on Sunday they are to relocate to Dubai Design District (d3).

Smart Dubai, Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), Dubai Sports Council and the Supreme Legislative Committee are all set to relocate to the district, which is run by Tecom Group, the division of Dubai Holding that owns and runs business parks across the city.

Mohammad Saeed Al Shehhi, the chief operating officer of d3, said: “We are pleased to welcome Smart Dubai, Dubai Culture, Dubai Sports Council and Supreme Legislative Committee to our ever-growing community.

"Their arrival cements the position of d3 as a cultural and strategic hub for government initiatives, supporting the Dubai Plan 2021."

D3 has been a popular district among tenants since the project's first phase opened in mid-2013. A report published by Core Savills in May stated that the district has achieved "near full occupancy".

"Dual licensing, continued demand for Grade A stock, along with the momentum gained by the success of Phase 1, underpins the way for D3’s Phase 2 - an additional one million square feet development expected to be delivered by 2019," it said.
