Dubai Digital Park Overview
Dubai Digital Park (DDP) is a smart city project at Dubai Silicon Oasis that opened in 2020. It supports and contributes to the development of a geoeconomic map of Dubai and sets a new global benchmark for smart technology solutions.
Built at an estimated cost of Dh1.3 billion ($354 million), it is the UAE’s first integrated free zone technology park and has been designed to comply with the Dubai Government’s strategic direction on smart cities that focus on six pillars: life, society, mobility, economy, governance and environment.
The development covers an area of 15ha (150,000sq m) and comprises 47,000sq m of office space, 17,000sq m of retail units, and 235 smart residential apartments. There are eight office buildings ranging from 4,000sq m to 6,000sq m providing flexible office accommodation fully integrated with smart services.
Facilities in the Park include a Radisson Red hotel with 112 business hotel rooms and 59 fully furnished apartments, as well as a convention centre that can host more than 500 people.

Dubai Digital Park History
Dubai Digital Park was originally called Silicon Park.
In line with the grand strategy to transform Dubai into the smartest city in the world, Dubai Digital Park has been designed with smart technology at its core. Its amenities include intelligent solutions such as charging docks on the streets for smart devices, smart pop-up furniture, digital play tables, and optimally designed bus shelters, shading for pedestrian squares, and other public amenities.
The residential units have remote-controlled systems to regulate lighting, air conditioning and electrical appliances, and to control the movement of windows and curtains.
Outside, smart lighting systems with motion sensor controls are able to respond to traffic and pedestrians.
A control centre that collects and analyses data gathered through sensor devices provides information to enable seamless management of smart devices to improve the delivery of smart services to employees, residents and visitors.
The project is compliant with the UAE Green Building Regulations and Specifications, as well as the international LEED standard, and seeks to enhance environmental sustainability.
DDP uses green building materials as well as solar panels and double-glazed windows to reduce heat absorption.
The project is expected to make best use of renewable energy resources and adopt measures to achieve efficiency in energy consumption.
