HOK developed the master plan and urban design guidelines for the Dubai International Financial Centre. The master plan consists of 22 plots of land.
The development concept brings changes in financial regulations for businesses in the DIFC. Businesses located within the development will be part of a duty-free zone.
The master planning process was particularly complex because although the DIFC is being built by several different developers, it is an integrated development with zero lot-line podiums, shared servicing routes and continuous concourse-level retail, landscaping and connections.
