Those guys in Dubai are just crazy, it seems like they are thinking only at futuristic architecture as the city is planning on building a new masterplan called Jumeirah Gardens which will consist of three projects, 1 Dubai, 1 Park Avenue, and Park Gate.
The megaproject has been commissioned for Chicago-based architects, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, who have $15 billion and 12 years at disposal to complete the Jumeirah Gardens. The three super structures will be built by Dubai-based company, Meraas Development, which described the project as “an integrated city within a city.”
“We’re incredibly excited to be collaborating with Meraas Development on these fantastic projects. Any one of these projects is a dream commission for an architect. We’re deeply gratified by the confidence that Meraas has placed in us, and look forward to playing a role in realizing its vision of Dubai as one of the most important and architecturally spectacular cities of the 21st century,” said Adrian Smith.
1 Dubai will be one of the biggest towers in the world as it will measure about 2,000-ft and it will be composed out of three tower that will be connected through skybridges. The 1 Dubai tower will have a total area of 13 million square-feet, enough space for a sky city with two luxury hotels, and office and retail spaces.
The second structure will be 1 Park avenue which will be a 116-story tower and it was inspired by the relationship between Dubai’s trading heritage and the water. We don’t really know what this means, however, the structure will have a total area of 4 million square-feet where you will find mixed-use spaces like hotels, offices, condominiums and service apartments.
The third project, Park Gate, will consist of six mid-rise towers connected through soaring gardern canopies which were designed to ensure cooling and shade when the sun becomes unbearable. The Park Gate will have a total area of 4.7 million square-feet and like the other two projects, it was designed to be sustainable.
