Designing a boulevard to rival the famous streets of the world
The dramatic 3km long Burj Boulevard – one of the most recognisable streets in the world – is the spine of the Downtown Dubai district, tying the development’s public realm spaces together. The quality of the landscape design creates a promenade feel offering an inclusive and functional public space, establishing a new benchmark for streetscape design in the region.
The iconic Burj Khalifa is a mixed-use development that spans a 190-hectare site and includes the world’s tallest skyscraper and largest shopping mall. Cracknell were appointed to provide landscape masterplanning, detail design and site services for key elements of the project including the Burj Khalifa tower, the Island Park, the Dubai Mall, the Boulevard, the Old Town streetscapes and public open spaces, the lakeside promenade and the lake fountains.
