8:30 AM – 5:30 PM

The ambitious Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) district is a financial hub for the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, with its own independent regulator and judicial system. As one of Dubai’s more established “polycenters,” DIFC debuted with The Gate building in 2004. The 110-hectare district now supports more than 21,000 workers with a complete set of infrastructure and amenities that is constantly being augmented. At its center, the 282-meter ICD Brookfield Place, which is to feature internal gardens and “sky view suites” with 6-meter-plus ceilings on the top three floors, is now under construction.
