#PROJECT: DOWNTOWN JEBEL ALI

Limitless unveils Dh70b Downtown Jebel Ali



Dubai: Limitless, a Dubai World company, on Wednesday announced the development of a Dh70 billion township, Downtown Jebel Ali, that will house 235,000 people.

The massive project, to be completed in phases by 2011, will occupy an 11 kilometre land stretch covering 200 hectares with built-up area of 70 million square feet on Shaikh Zayed Road between the Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai Waterfront and Techno-Park.

"It is designed to be the gateway to the World Central international airport in the area," a company statement said.

There will be a total of 326 buildings of which 237 will be residential and the rest commercial.

Limitless will invest Dh5 billion in infrastructure and also build 35 towers.

"Limitless is following a new strategic and sustainable approach to developing projects that will help create thriving diverse communities. This approach led to the creation of this distinctive development," Sultan Ahmad Bin Sulayem, chairman of Dubai World said in a statement.

The whole township is divided into four quarters, each divided into three districts that will have business, residential, dining and retail facilities.

"Downtown Jebel Ali will be more than a development, it will be a community where public spaces between the building — streets, parks and plazas — matters as much as the buildings themselves," Saeed Ahmad Saeed, CEO of Limitless said.

"The Downtown will reflect some of the world's most vibrant cities. This is going to be a pedestrian friendly area, four freeway interchanges connection to Downtown Jebel Ali. It will have an unrivalled transport infrastructure and a place where people will live and work without having to drive cars."

The project will be connected to Dubai with four Dubai Metro stations and an automated people mover system (APM) while there will also be pedestrianised congestion free areas, he said.

Limitless, a new company floated earlier this year by Dubai World, has also projects under way in Pakistan and China while other projects are being planned in India, Russia and the Gulf.

"Construction of the project is currently underway, with the first four commercial buildings due for completion by mid-2007."

"The infrastructure works for the whole project is to be completed by 2009 while the entire project is slated for completion by 2011," Stephan Ashford, senior development manager of Limitless told Gulf News.

With more than 300 buildings, Downtown Jebel Ali will consist of four quarters - East Quarter, East Central, West Central and West Quarter. Each will have a full range of transport options for easy access to and from the development. Its clever design includes ample space in between buildings, with pedestrianised, congestion-free areas. Each quarter provides a complete range of services for the businesses, residents and retailers who will make Downtown Jebel Ali their home. And each one has three individual districts - the Urban Centre, the Trellis and Medina Districts, creating a vibrant blend of business, residential, shopping, dining and entertainment facilities

Bustling, energetic Urban Centres will be characterised by distinctive modern towers and grand covered spaces. These centres will represent the commercial and social hub of each zone. In addition to well designed office and residential spaces there will be a rich selection of cafes, restaurants and shops which will give each of the zones a distinct and vibrant character of its own. A combination of shaded arcades and ingenious architecture will create a comfortable, lively environment, day and night.

The Medina Districts will resonate with echoes of historic desert cities while offering every modern amenity. In these mainly mid and low rise residential neighbourhoods, small courtyards and plazas will be punctuated by cafes and local shops. Cars will be kept largely to the perimeter, allowing meandering cobblestone streets and walkways to create a more intimate, family-friendly environment. Compact neighbourhood parks will mark the entry to each Medina and provide yet another place for people to meet and socialise.

The Trellis Districts will extend out from the Urban Centres and mark a distinct change in tone and density. With a blend of smaller towers and mid-rise buildings, these districts will share a strong visual identity thanks to a unique network of trellises projecting from buildings to provide shaded, pedestrian-friendly environment. These shaded interior roads with their generous sidewalks and ground floor shops will be interspersed with beautiful urban plazas and parks. Plants and water features will offer a softer, more natural environment and experience.

I like the idea of desigining it to be pedestrian-friendly with attention to landscaping.

Four metro stations for the one project... that's huge.

Is this part of the Dubai World Central project... do they make up a percentage of the 800 buildings?

Brisk sales for Limitless

Limitless, the real estate development arm of Dubai World, has already found buyers for about half of its 200-hectare Downtown Jebel Ali community, a senior executive said.

Senior development manager Stephen Ashford told Emirates Today that two of the project’s four zones consisting of residential, business, retail, dining and entertain ment facilities have “effectively” sold out.

“We are effectively in a position where we have sold all of the plots in zones one and two,” he said. “Zone three will be released shortly and zone four after that.

“I think [Downtown Jebel Ali] compares favourably with any typical Sheikh Zayed Road development where you have a large tower with a car park behind. That’s exactly what this project isn’t.

“We’re able to spread the built-up area more, which leads to smaller average parcel sizes and smaller average investment volumes, which is more affordable.” With a built-up area of 70 million square feet, Downtown Jebel Ali will occupy an 11km stretch of Sheikh Zayed Road between Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai Waterfront and Techno Park. Consisting of 326 buildings divided into separate quarters, it will house around 235,000 people including 70,000 residents.

Ashford said the total investment value of the devel opment is Dh50 billion, contrary to newspaper reports putting the figure at Dh70bn.

Limitless, which is currently planning projects in India, Russia and the Gulf, is investing Dh5bn in the project’s infrastructure.

Each of Downtown Jebel Ali’s four zones will be subdivided into three distinct districts – an urban centre, a Trellis District providing shaded pedestrian areas, and the residential Medina District.

Access will be aided by four new freeway intersections and Dubai Metro stations.

Speaking at the launch, Saeed Ahmed Saeed, Limitless CEO, described Downtown Jebel Ali as “a living, breathing community where public spaces between the buildings matter as much as the buildings themselves in the community.” Construction is well under way, and the first four commercial buildings will be ready by mid-2007.

The entire project should be completed by 2011.

From http://www.downtownjebelali.com/

East Quarter

Heading west along Sheikh Zayed Road from the Dubai City Centre, East Quarter marks the eastern gateway to Downtown Jebel Ali. Accessed from Interchange 8 of the freeway, East Quarter is 12m ft2 in area, with a planned population of over 50,000 people. A Metro station will be centrally located beside Sheikh Zayed Road, leading directly into the Urban Centre. To the west the Urban Centre gives way to the Trellis District and then to the Medina District, which dominates the western end of the quarte

East Central

Next along Sheikh Zayed Road is East Central; a more compact quarter approximately 10m ft2 in area and with a population of 37,000. This quarter is more centrally located between freeway interchanges 9 and 10 and is easily reached from both JAFZA North and JAFZA south. As with East Quarter, a centrally located Metro station opens into a plaza in the heart of the Urban Centre. East Central extends east and west from the Urban Centre into Trellis Districts and finally to the Medina Districts, situated at each end of the quarter.

West Central

Situated between freeway interchanges 10 and 11 and to the north of Techno Park, West Central is the second largest of the quarters, with an area of 21m ft2 and a population of nearly 60,000. Like East Central, West Central's layout follows the classic pattern of a centrally located Metro station leading through to the hub of the Urban Centre. The Urban Centre is flanked by Trellis Districts, which themselves transition into the more residential Medina Districts.

West Quarter

As its name suggests, the West Quarter is the most westerly of the quarters, and also the largest, with an area of 24m ft2 and a population of 58,000. West Quarter has a similar arrangement of districts to the other quarters, with a Metro station and Urban Centre once more forming the centrepiece of the quarter. However, while the Urban Centre gives way in the usual fashion to Trellis and Medina Districts to the east, the western end of the quarter turns back on itself towards the south, forming a distinctive 'elbow' in the overall shape of Downtown Jebel Ali.

Nice renderings.

They're low-rises, so I guess they would finish on time. I thought they were referring to 4 high-rise towers and the date was a bit surprising.

Downtown Jebel Ali is part of Dubai Waterfront...

I speculate that this thing [Downtown Jebel Ali] is actually part, or perhaps, the entire land-based part of Dubai Waterfront (I'm referring to the latest version of Dubai Waterfront's design--the scorpion-tail-like one).
