Deira is one of the oldest communities in Dubai, rich with traditions, culture and one of the most important economic hubs in the region. The Deira Waterfront Development is located in the northern portion of the existing Deira District across the street from the old Souq and fronting the famous Dubai Creek.
After careful study and consideration of all area challenges, AE7 created a phased plan of development. The first stage of this development is to address imminent issues associated with parking. AE7 proposed a series of the solutions that will aim to enhance current parking situation and at the same time consider the heritage values of old Deira, working closely with the Dubai Heritage Department and completing this first step in recreating old Deira in a new world.
This first 610 parking prototype is replacing the current inefficient surface parking right in front of the Gold Souq and creating much needed space for subsequent project phasing. The design of the parking structure is carefully responding to local architectural flavor, recognizing the look and feel of old Deira without blindly trying to copy local architectural styles.
