#PROJECT: DESIGN TOWN

DESIGN TOWN

Hello everyody,
I found the following feature about the new DESIGN TOWN project at:
http://www.welcome-dubai.com/site/in...pper&Itemid=93
But no hint were it will be located yet ...:


Die Ahmed Thani Group, Group of Companies, vertreten durch ihren Chairman Ahmed Bin Thani Al Mehairi aus Dubai und die Fa. Design Town, vertreten durch Herrn Ralph Gleisert aus Hamburg, haben am 22.01.2006 einen Vertrag zur Errichtung des ersten von insgesamt weltweit sieben Projekten mit dem Namen "Design Town" unterzeichnet. Die Planungen sind fast abgeschlossen, so dass mit dem Bau unverzüglich begonnen werden kann. Die Investitionskosten für Design-Town-Dubai belaufen sich auf ca. 380.000.000,00 $ (dreihundertachtzigmillionen).

Die "ATG-DESIGN-TOWN-DUBAI" wird auf einem ca. 180.000 qm großen Grundstück erbaut und umfaßt u.a. folgende Einzelbereiche:

:: The College of Design (incl. a Design Museum )
:: The lifestyle mall VIVA
:: The DesignOtel
:: The ArtCube
:: Design Offices
:: Design Town Arena


The College of Design (incl. a Design Museum)
In cooperation with an internationally recognised institution of higher education, the operators will offer an educational facility for 250 students. Courses will concentrate on architecture, interior design, art, and art history, as well as industrial- and graphic design. The adjacent museum is to showcase works by international designers. Once a year, the musuem will be dedicated to a so-called „Designer´s Showhouse“, an international exhibition of interior solutions.

The lifestyle mall VIVA
A 90,000 square meter shopping- and exhibition facility, aiming at the high-end consumer. Showrooms will offer the latest in trends from designers across the globe. The mall will include personal shoppers, an art-oriented kindergarten, a „Sports World“ showroom, as well as numerous individual shops. The public space will enable the tenants to participate in a large number of marketing events. Lastly, a „designer´s walk of fame“ is to be part of the mall.

A special space,
roughly one third of the overall floor-space, will be dedicated to so-called „pop up shops“ in which young designers from across the globe can showcase and sell their design products. It is the goal of the developers to include an ever-changing array of designs from students and faculty from the design college, as well as products from partner institutions worldwide. The operators will provide dedicated marketing entities, including the cooperation with the world´s leading trend researcher in order to create merchandising possibilities for students of the college and for other tenants alike.

The DesignOtel
A 25-storey hotel, fearturing 200 luxury rooms, 50 suites, and one floor-through suite. Additionally, four restaurants and a night-club will be included. Four floors will feature apparments for long-term rentals. Lastly, a cutting-edge sports facility is to be created in conjunction with the operator of „Sports World“ within the mall. Key feature of the hotel is the inclusion of 29 internationally recognised designers, who will each create the masterplans for one floor. Likewise, the restaurants are each designed by a different designer in a theme given by the developers. One floor is to be designed by students of the college as an ongoing project.

I know Ralph since a long time. I've been working on several projects for him. But I've to say, he is not serious. I'm waiting being paid for more than five years. And I know others — not being paid. Four languages, good education but bad behavior. His depts are enormous.
