Emaar Properties, the developer of a 10-tower project in Dubai, commissioned a Fort Lauderdale-based architecture firm to design the buildings’ façades.

Emaar commissioned Rex Nichols Architects (RNA) for the first pre-construction phase of the development, called Dubai Creek Harbor.

The mixed-use development near downtown Dubai, scheduled for completion in 2020, would include residences, retail stores, restaurants and offices.

“We were approached by the senior manager for Dubai Creek Harbor based on the contemporary design featured on our website,” architect Rex Nichols, who runs RNA, said in a prepared statement.

If selected to continue design work beyond the first phase of pre-construction, Fort Lauderdale-based RNA would become the lead architect for the 10-building waterfront development in a joint venture with Robert Swedroe Architects in Miami.

RNA and Swedroe previously were in a Middle Eastern joint venture together to design a proposed mixed-use development in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, which would include commercial buildings, villas and a hotel.

The 2.3-square-mile development site of Dubai Creek Harbor would encompass a 3,045-foot tower that will be the world’s next tallest building, Dubai Creek Tower, designed by architect Santiago Calatrava. — Mike Seemuth
