Winner of the 2019 International Property Award Dubai for Best Mixed-use Architecture Dubai, the Dubai Commercity takes on an innovative design in order to draw international companies to establish their regional headquarters in its premises. Generating a smart & quality-focused business environment, the project “provides a unique e-commerce ecosystem to global and regional brands to help them set up and operate their e-commerce business in the MENA region”.

Divided into three different clusters with distinct experiences, the Dubai CommerCity implements state-of-the-art technologies. Aiming for environmental and investment sustainability, the business cluster features 12 buildings, with indoor and outdoor experiences, encouraging people to adopt an active approach while doing business. On the other hand, the logistics cluster consisting of 108 logistics units, is designed with rooftop PVC solar panels to generate clean energy; and the social cluster, the heart of Dubai CommerCity, includes art galleries, restaurants, cafés, and vibrant facilities.

Committed to UAE’s sustainability goals, the project adopts non-traditional methods in accordance with global standards for a sustainable environment and a green economy. In fact, “Dubai CommerCity plans on reducing electricity consumption by using solar energy and lowering water wastage by 40 percent through the treatment of polluted water and the collection and reuse of rainwater”. The strategies also include the implementation of global environmental standards for the construction of light industrial units and buildings, as well as the use of environmentally friendly building materials and recycled resources.
