Broadway Malyan completes concept masterplan for $10 billion 10-year project 

International architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan has delivered the concept masterplan for the ‘10x10’ project in Iraq, involving a 17 sq km extension of Sadr City, Baghdad, and the creation of New Sadr City. The practice’s masterplan is a major milestone in the realisation of the project, named 10x10 because of its predicted $10bn dollar value and ten-year delivery timeframe and, as one of the largest in Iraq, is central to reconstruction in the country.

Director John Turner said: “The completion of the concept masterplan is a major milestone in the creation of a sustainable community with a strong identity for over 500,000 inhabitants and which will ease overcrowding in Sadr City, with successful delivery having depended on long-term and close partnering with the client, and the world-class skills, expertise and experience of our diverse team of international masterplanning experts.”

The practice’s team has worked closely with client the Mayoralty of Baghdad to deliver a concept masterplan, together with implementation tender documentation and detailed sector masterplans, as well as training in the UK for members of the client’s team.

The practice secured the appointment through an open competition which began in 2009 and, following the submission of a proposal in association with DATA Consultants, the practices were confirmed the preferred bidders in late 2009, with design work starting in April 2010. The client has invited design and build tenders, and is currently assessing submissions, with the practice looking to secure further appointments to support the realisation of the project.
