Dubai: Work on the Union Oasis project that will transform the area around the Union Metro station into a multi-facility transit hub will begin this year.
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has invited private firms and investors to work jointly on the project.
Tenders for the project will be accepted from May, RTA announced on Sunday, while issuing the guidelines for the project.
The project comprises the construction of mixed-use towers above the Union Metro station in an area spanning 15,000 square metres.
First of a series of Transit Oriented Developments (TOD) that are expected to reshape Dubai’s urban landscape, the Union Oasis is aimed at making public transport more accessible to people.
Announced more than a year ago, the TOD venture will transform the Union Metro station location into a multi-facility transit hub. More info
