Emaar Community Master Plan

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

This Master Plan proposes a community of over 400 hectares to include: parkland, recreation, commercial and retail villages, Mosques, a school campus and housing in various forms and densities. The key feature of the development is a central lake that is accessible and visible from several vantage points. The upper plaza and fountain acts as the source for the river and the community gateway identifier. The river flows from this source creating a valley landscape opening into the lake. The built forms, estates to semi-detached housing, line the valley and perimeter of the site with some medium-rise residential buildings overlooking one end of the lake.
