KEO was commissioned by Wasl to develop a master plan for the Port Views redevelopment project in Dubai. Located near Port Rashid in the heart of old Dubai approximately, 1.4 kilometers south of Dubai Maritime City, the existing underutilized site was transformed into a vibrant mixed-use community. Designed on an 8.5 hectare site, the community contains 153,000 square meters of residential development, 18,000 square meters of office space, 12,500 square meters of retail space and 73,000 square meters for hospitality uses, along with a public open space and community mosque.
With a variety of land uses, a combination of contemporary and vernacular architecture set in a mid-rise format, active street level uses and an attractive public realm, Port Views is a signature location to live, work, and shop in this rapidly transforming area of Dubai. The community is accessible and walkable, with a clear grid of internal roadways and a series of pedestrian paths (Sikka) between plots, with all footways leading to the heart of the project, the centrally located community park and mosque.
