Town Square Dubai development wins global award
Town Square, Dubai’s stylish green neighbourhood by Nshama, has won the prestigious Gold Nuggets 2016 Award for ‘Best International Site Plan’.
The development, which combines residential properties with a raft of entertainment, retail and leisure facilities for international tourists, is located in New Dubai, near Al Barsha. It’s also close to Arabian Ranches Golf Course, Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club and Al Maktoum International Airport, near the site for the World Expo 2020.
International jury members with strong industry credentials said they were ‘very impressed’ with the outdoor articulation and scale of the 750-acre Town Square, which received the most votes of all 665 entries.
Fred Durie, CEO of Nshama, said: “Securing the Gold Nugget 2016, as we prepare to mark the first hand-over of homes next year, highlights our innovative approach to site utilisation to create a trendy neighbourhood. Our goal is to offer a diverse choices of lifestyle amenities and leisure attractions in close proximity for our residents, and create added value for their investment in Dubai’s most sought-after affordable community.”
Town Square is anchored by a central square the size of 16 football pitches, and its facilities include Vida Town Square Dubai hotel and a Reel Cinemas cineplex. Residents can also access a 2.5 million sq ft retail precinct featuring more than 600 stores and F&B outlets, green trails, outdoors sports courts and cycling tracks, among other amenities.
The site also includes the provision of day-care facilities, playgrounds, play zones for all ages, swimming pools, fitness centre, athletic spa, interactive water features, skate parks, playgrounds, adventure zones, modern medical facilities and splash parks.
