Dubai – MENA Herald: Town Square, Dubai’s first-of-its-kind smartly designed, stylish, green neighbourhood by Nshama, has won the prestigious Gold Nuggets 2016 Award for ‘Best International Site Plan.’
In its citation, the international jury members with strong industry credentials said they was ‘very impressed’ with the outdoor articulation and scale of the 750-acre (31 million sq ft) project located in New Dubai near Al Barsha, in close proximity to Arabian Ranches Golf Course, Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club and Al Maktoum International Airport, near the site for the World Expo 2020. Nshama’s Town Square was voted from over 665 entries in 48 categories for the prestigious honour.
Fred Durie, Chief Executive Officer of Nshama, said: “Securing the Gold Nugget 2016, as we prepare to mark the first hand-over of homes next year, highlights our innovative approach to site utilisation to create a trendy neighbourhood. This adds to the ‘live at your price’ value proposition of the Town Square homes. Our goal is to offer a diverse choices of lifestyle amenities and leisure attractions in close proximity for our residents, and create added value for their investment in Dubai’s most sought-after affordable community.”
Gold Nugget Awards Judge Don Ruthroff of Dahlin Group Architecture Planning in Pleasanton, CA, said this year’s competition was exceptionally diverse, with winners coming from throughout the US and internationally. “Creative ideas in design do not know boundaries. We found the variety and level of excellence to be particularly heartening this year.”
Town Square is anchored by a central square that is the size of 16 football fields. A number of lifestyle choices await residents and visitors such as Vida Town Square Dubai hotel and a Reel Cinemas cineplex. Residents are also in easy access of a 2.5 million sq ft retail precinct featuring more than 600 stores and F&B outlets, green trails, outdoors sports courts and cycling tracks, among other amenities.
The site utilisation of Town Square takes into account the provision of day-care facilities, playgrounds, play zones for all ages, swimming pools, fitness centre, athletic spa, interactive water features, skate parks, playgrounds, adventure zones, modern medical facilities and splash parks.
Providing one-bedroom apartments at below half a million dirhams (AED 499,000) and three-bedroom apartments at around AED 1 million, Nshama also offers townhouses for as low as AED 999,988 apiece – the lowest priced townhouses of its kind, which is unprecedented in the market.
