New Eye Park development introduces technological improvements to a rapidly expanding Dubai 

As part of Dubai’s ongoing plan to become a worldwide tourist, entertainment, and leisure destination, Tameer Holding Investments have employed retail design firm Callison to develop six mixed-use towers in the heart of the new Dubailand development. The new towers – to be collectively known as Eye Park - will offer over around 1.9 million square feet of residential space, and 100,00 square feet of retail space, along with full amenities, car parking, and shopping areas.

The six towers that comprise the development will be centred around an oval ‘crescent park,’ which will create a natural focus for the area and will incorporate natural elements, as well as art and water features, to give the towers a focal centrepiece. The towers themselves will feature the latest in sustainable technology, including energy efficient geothermal and solar heating, in addition to cooling systems and low flow water systems. It is hoped that these technological advances will help the towers produce on-site renewable energy, with solar heated water and grey water technology included in the design to help produce a 30 percent reduction in water usage.

Mr. Ghassan Sakhnini, CEO of Tameer had this to say of the project, “Tameer is pleased to announce this significant partnership with Callison… we are confident that the highest calibre of quality and style will be reflected in the design of these projects in true Callison renowned fashion.” The project is scheduled for completion in Spring 2011.
