Dubai Creekside Redevelopment
With our collaborating partners, we have led an international design and technical team tasked with planning and designing a cultural and heritage destination comprising both sides of Dubai Creek for 1 ½ miles through the historical center of Dubai. The project consists of 143 separate buildings to include retail, residential, hospitality, cultural, and entertainment uses, connected by a network of public spaces, covered “souks,” and marinas.
Parking garages, parking access, and vertical circulation have been designed to accommodate 12,000 cars in 2 levels for the entire length of the redevelopment. In January 2008, the government mandated that all future buildings will achieve U.S.G.B.C. LEED Gold certification, and we were selected for this separate contract and to assist the United Arab Emirates to draft the “Emirates Green Building Council” documents, establishing the local criteria for LEED status. In 2008, Dubai Creek Redevelopment was considered the world’s largest LEED certification project.
