Park Gate comprises six mid-rise towers that are arranged
in facing pairs. A hanging garden canopy stretches between each set
of structures, providing shade and cooling the neighborhood by as much
as 10 degrees centigrade.
The smooth curves of 1 Park Avenue evoke Dubai’s
historic relationship with the Arabian Gulf. The 1,800 foot tower will
incorporate solar panels, wind turbines, and a variety of other sustainable
strategies in its design.
Excavation for Jumeira Gardens has already begun, and the development
is expected to take 12 years to complete.
