DKA principals worked closely with Khoie Development Company designing a portion of the man-made Marjan Island located in the Persian Gulf northeast of Dubai. The development company chose DKA principals for their expertise in high end hotel and residential developments. The island took many years to build and the first phases of the building projects are currently under construction.
Building projects that were taken from conceptual design through construction documents include: condominiums, hotels, retail, apartments, and an office building. The structures are grouped into two distinct zones which are split by the main island roadway. The east side rises up 12 – 14 stories focusing on the views of the Persian Gulf and the west side is designed to a lower scale, 4-6 stories tall with narrow pedestrian streets and ground- level retail that creates an intimate streetscape-like village.
The mixed-use development includes:
Underground Parking for Nearly 1,000 Vehicles

This project was designed by DKA personnel while working at another firm.
