Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) released the names of the successful architectural and engineering firms selected to develop a major section of the AED 16 billion Masterplan for the enhancement of the DWTC Complex and surrounding area.



Internationally-renowned Hopkins Architects, of the UK, was chosen as lead architect following an in-depth review process that examined the proposals and track records of a significant number of the world`s leading companies.



Global consultancy firm WSP Group was selected as the engineer for the project. These are the first two companies to be announced in connection with this audacious development.



The Masterplan, which was approved by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Minister for Finance and Industry, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai World Trade Centre, will enhance the area surrounding the iconic DWTC Tower to include a state-of-the-art convention centre, office and residential towers, hotels and hotel apartments and commercial facilities.



It will incorporate the Landmark Tower, to be situated on Sheikh Zayed Road by the Emirates Towers, along with shopping outlets, modern residential developments, parking facilities and links to the advanced Dubai Light Rail metro system.



Under the agreement, Hopkins and WSP will be responsible for developing a 130,000 square metre mixed-used development within the DWTC district.



Our aim is that this first phase of the DWTC Masterplan will incorporate iconic design and inspiring architecture. To this end, we have selected two of the world`s leading companies to help us achieve this goal, said Helal Saeed Al Marri, Director General, Dubai World Trade Centre.



We are confident that the architectural plans they are developing will contribute to the creation of one of the world`s leading business districts, at the heart of Dubai, he added.
