Dubai Urban Development Framework


Location: Dubai, UAE

Service: Urban Development Strategic Study

项目地点:阿联酋  迪拜



Halcrow has been engaged by the Dubai Government to manage the preparation of a new Urban Development Framework to guide and control Dubai’s growth to the year 2020 and beyond.

With year on year growth levels at 16 % Dubai has over the last half decade achieved global recognition as one of the most dynamic and fast growing economies of the world. This growth has been accompanied by rapid physical expansion to accommodate new and growing businesses and the global talent which is seeking the unprecedented opportunities offered by Dubai. The scale and pace of this development are being fuelled by the launch of spectacular and innovative mega projects and a level of real estate and other investment that has surpassed all expectations. This economic boom however, has come at a cost. Dubai’s attractive hard infrastructure, a key magnet for international investment, is itself under pressure with rising property prices making much of the housing stock unaffordable to middle income families. Traffic congestion and sky-rocketing rents are cited as the key ailments of the present city.

Guided by the Dubai Strategic Plan 2015 (HH Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Makhtoum’s socio-economic vision statement and strategy for the Emirate’s growth), the Dubai Urban Development Framework will serve as the vehicle for ensuring balanced and sustainable growth for the Emirate, and will address social and environmental issues in addition to spatial development.
