Jumeirah Central is a multi-functional world-class transit oriented development in Dubai. The district will comprise 4.2 million m2 of cutting-edge office, retail, hospitality and residential spaces networked with over 8km of climate-controlled pedestrian streets, entertainment and leisure attractions. Since the first sketched ideas, Jumeirah Central is conceived by all related stakeholders as a unique opportunity to envisage a new virtuous approach to urban developments in Dubai and far beyond the national borders. This opportunity is pursued by setting out a firm framework of sustainability, viability and vitality of the urban built environment.
Systematica works for 18 months in tight collaboration with architects (5+Design) and developers (Dubai Holding) on both Concept Master Plan (CMP) and Detailed Master Plan (DMP) contributing significantly to the definition of a reliable and diversified transportation network. During the conceptual phase, an efficient, multi-layered and integrated mobility strategy is devised with the aim of defining the underpinning transportation planning and engineering principles; during the detailed phase, the strategy is further developed into an effective transport master plan, designed to create a high-quality urban environment and influence transport planning not merely within Jumeirah Central but at wider city scale. Indeed, the main goal to what all transport strategies converge is the creation of a new model of public urban realm in Dubai, possible through a seamless permeability with the surroundings and an intuitive internal navigation.
