RMJM is delighted to announce it has been nominated at the upcoming Cityscape Awards for Emerging Markets. The Cityscape Awards, to be held in Dubai this September, will celebrate excellence in real estate development and architecture and are widely regarded as one of the most important events in the architectural calendar. This year, RMJM’s acclaimed Gate Avenue at DIFC has been recognized in the Retail Project Award (Future) category.

Located at the heart of the DIFC, the Gate Avenue is a unique combination of an urban landscape on top of a pristine retail environment. The Gate Avenue runs along the central axis of the site, connecting and catering to the surrounding office, hotel, and residential communities; by allowing for leisure, networking and relaxation. The strategy is to use the central spine of near continuous retail, F&B and service outlets to meet the instantaneous demands of the working community while offering the possibility to utilize the convenience of the larger destination retail, restaurants and hotels that are currently proposed to be sited along the route, much of which having already been built. Active retail edges present the interior as a pattern of streets, each, in turn, demanding exploration. Clean crisp interiors of varying ambiance are intended to augment the leading world class position of DIFC within the financial world.

Cityscape Global is the largest and most influential real estate investment and development event for emerging markets globally. Covering a range of categories, the awards offer international architects and leading real estate developers a prestigious platform to communicate a shared vision for the future, from culturally integrated city skylines to sustainable urban communities.

The news of RMJM’s nomination caps a great week for the firm after they were named in the AD50, a prestigious list celebrating the top 50 architects in the Middle East. RMJM’s award nomination continues their history with Cityscape, having been nominated for three awards at the event in 2016.
