Dubai – MENA Herald: Nshama, a private developer of integrated lifestyle communities for aspiring home-owners, has appointed Emaar District Cooling (EDC), a leading provider of full-spectrum services, as the sole provider of district cooling services for Town Square.

Dubai’s first-of-its-kind smartly designed, stylish, green neighbourhood, Town Square is the flagship project of Nshama and has earned overwhelming response from end-use home-owners led by the highly competitive and affordable price points of its residential apartments and townhouses.

Anchored by a central square, the size of 16 football fields, Town Square features a wide array of modern amenities including the Vida Town Square Dubai Hotel and a Reel Cinemas cineplex and open-air cinema. In addition to a 2.5 million sq ft retail precinct featuring over 600 stores and F&B outlets, Town Square also has day-care facilities, playgrounds, play zones for all ages, swimming pools, fitness centre, athletic spa, interactive water features, skate parks, running trails, cycling trails, adventure zones, modern medical facilities and splash parks.

EDC will be the exclusive provider of district cooling services for a period of 30 years. The company will construct, commission and operate the plant and equipment, with the district cooling plant to be built on land leased on a Musataha arrangement basis with Nshama. EDC will also manage the supply of the service to end-users including billing and maintenance.

Fred Durie, Chief Executive Officer of Nshama, said: “Town Square has established itself as one of the most sought-after and trendy end-use residential developments in Dubai. With construction progressing as per schedule, we are laying the foundations for a full-service lifestyle neighbourhood that will welcome the first residents with amenities in place.
