Dubai’s Box Park on target

February 2015

WORK on Dubai’s new tourist and commercial Box Park project was scheduled to be completed at the end of last month.

Situated across a 1,200-m-long stretch along Al Wasl Road in Jumeirah, the facility boasts a unique architecture as it uses unconventional building materials such as industrial containers, concrete and steel, to add a touch of modernity, reported the Emirati news agency Wam.

The new tourist and commercial project has been built on the lines of the ‘pop-up’ structures set in other cities such as New York (US), London (UK), Paris (France) and Christchurch (New Zealand), it added.

While these cities have a temporary ‘pop-up’ structure, the Dubai facility will be a permanent destination where residents and tourists can spend a memorable and fun-filled day out, said the report.

A spatial experience that is inviting, comfortable, engaging and memorable, this self-contained destination will be a place to shop, dine, relax and soak up the outdoor ambiance, it added. Box Park is a lifestyle destination which will feature an eclectic mix of restaurants, cafes and high-end fashion outlets, intermingled with open spaces and amenities.

UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum said: “Box Park will be a revolutionary lifestyle destination where urban chic meets contemporary sophistication. Providing a refreshing alternative to sprawling, insular malls, the concept will feature an eclectic mix of restaurants, cafes and high-end fashion outlets, intermingled with open spaces and amenities.”
