Dubai World Trade Centre District designed by Hopkins Architects 

Hopkins Architects have been appointed for the first Phase of the Dubai World Trade Centre District, which is at the heart of the new business district in the city. This is arguably the most important area of real estate in the Gulf and the Middle East.

The design will feature a balance of public and private spaces creating a unique mixed-use urban quarter of offices, apartments, hotels and retail use. The design includes a series of internal and external public spaces with treelined 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.

Development statistics:
Grade A1 Offices: 200,000 m2
Hotel: 2 five-star hotels proving a total of 1,000 keys
Apartments: 2,000 apartments
Retail: 32,000 m2 of double-volume units
Car parking: 8,300 spaces underground
