Central Park District 08, Dubai International Finance Centre in UAE by Hopkins Architects

Central Park District 08 is part of the Dubai International Finance Centre masterplan.

The site is located near to the extreme end of the development boundary and sits alongside one end of the axis that runs across the site, linking the Gate Building, the Emirates Towers and the World Trade Centre on the other end.  This location therefore forms a significant counterbalance to the Emirates Towers and as such lends itself to being a building with strong presence.

Two towers are proposed that have the scale and the massing to contrast with the Emirates Towers.  The larger of the two towers is for offices and the other is for residential use.  They are both linked by a podium, which will house associated retail, leisure and related car parking.
