Dubai International Financial Center (DFIC), Dubai, UAE
Comprising approximately 110 Acres (44 Ha) and extending nearly a mile in length (1.2 kilometers), this mixed use Center is popularly referred to as “a city within a city”. Anchored by the DIFC iconic headquarters building, the complex includes a multitude of uses to create a true mixed use urban lifestyle center. In addition to state of the art world class Office space, other components include luxury residential buildings, hotels, lifestyle retail, art and gallery spaces, conference centers, service apartments and performance venues. Our team collaborated with the Design Architect, Jerde, to conceptualize the extensive landscape open spaces including the perimeter streetscape, street furniture, pedestrian and transit linkages, focal parks, plazas and iconic water features. Today, DIFC continues to expand and to evolve into a premier development show casing the international prominence of Dubai and the United Arab Emirates as an International Center of Finance and Business.
