Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has ordered that a district in the Emirate be renamed.
Al Minhad and its surrounding areas will now be known as “Hind City”.
The city includes four zones, Hind 1, Hind 2, Hind 3, and Hind 4, and spans an area of 83.9km.
Hind means Brave and courageous in Arabic. It could also mean a group of camels.
Where is Hind City?
The former Al Minhad is located in the Al Qudra desert, near Damac Hills 2.
Hind City is served by major roads, including Emirates Road, Al Ain Road, and Jebel Ali-Lehbab Road.
The city also includes housing for Emirati citizens.
This isn’t the first time something has been renamed in Dubai.
We’ve seen roads, buildings and entire areas have a name change or a rebrand.
Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) just received a new branding from DMCC that describes it as “A neighborhood full of spirit.” A tagline that captures the neighborhood’s development as Dubai’s premier mixed-use neighborhood.
According to DMCC, the new brand is supported by the basic thesis that JLT has evolved into a diverse community with spirit. The community’s identity combines sincerity, drive, harmony, and cooperation.
TECOM renamed to Barsha Heights
Recall the day several Dubai residents discovered they no longer living in TECOM when they woke up. Barsha Heights is the new moniker for the collection of towering skyscrapers squished between First Al Khail Road and the northbound lanes of Sheikh Zayed Road.
Burj Dubai renamed to Burj Khalifa
The announcement was made at the opening of the Burj Khalifa in early January 2010.
