title about us Middle East - Dubai Marina, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Cornell Town Centre

Emaar Properties PJSC's Dubai Marina (formerly named Westside Marina) is truly one of the most ambitious urban development projects ever undertaken. The concept is to create a modern canal oriented "Venice in the desert". The project was initiated under the supervision of H.H. Sheikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Head of UAE Cabinet, Ruler of Dubai and H.H. General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The Dubai Marina project is headed up by Emaar Properties' Chairman H.E. Mohamed Bin Ali Alabbar. Talbot Consultants International Inc. was retained by HOK Canada to assist them in designing the centrepiece for Phase 2 of the project; an 825,000 sq. ft. mixed-use "Town Centre". Based on our retail planning experience in the Middle East we were asked to advise HOK & Emaar on the layout and design, potential local & international anchors and the optimum selection, sizing & clustering of the retailers. We were also asked to advise on the sizing, layout and composition of the entertainment, food court and hotel components. Since the potential customers will primarily be residents (both local and expat) from the surrounding residential towers, office workers (both local and expat) from the adjacent Internet City and international tourists from the adjacent hotels particular attention was paid to the direct linkages to these areas so as to facilitate easy customer access & egress. Phase 1 of the project has recently been completed
