The first Phase of the Dubai World Trade Centre District, at the heart of the new business district in the city, arguably the most important area of real estate in the Gulf and the Middle East.
Our design will feature a balance of public and private spaces creating a unique mixed-use urban quarter of offices, apartments, hotels and retail use. We have carefully designed a series of internal and external public spaces with tree-lined streets, light filled atria and rooftop gardens; places for people to live, work and enjoy life.
The project will provide a unique human-scaled urban environment with over 1 million square metres (10 million sq ft) of developable area. The office buildings will be designed to the best environmental standards to achieve LEED™ ‘Platinum’ status.
Total area approx: 1,040,000 m2 (590,000 m2 above ground & 450,000 m2 below ground)
