RAPAPORT... The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) has unveiled its 'Burj2020 District' concept, a mixed-use urban center.

The new area, introduced at the 2015 Cityscape Global Conference, will include several towers and will total more than 1 million square meters. In addition to commercial space, the district will make available 100,000 square meters of retail space and will serve the surrounding DMCC Free Zone and Jumeirah Lake Towers. That Free Zone now consists of 66 towers.

Adrian Smith, a partner at AS+GG, the firm behind the concept, said the design of Burj2020 is inspired by faceted gemstones. “Symbolizing the next stage of growth for the city, the design of the 'Burj2020' is also inspired by the facets of a diamond – elegant, bold and timeless," he said.
