Top Miami architectural firm Rex Nichols Architects got a contract from Emaar Properties for design work in the first phase of pre-construction
Emaar Properties, the developer of a 10-tower project in Dubai, commissioned a Fort Lauderdale-based architecture firm to design the buildings’ façades.
Emaar commissioned Rex Nichols Architects (RNA) for the first pre-construction phase of the development, called Dubai Creek Harbor.
The mixed-use development near downtown Dubai, scheduled for completion in 2020, would include residences, retail stores, restaurants and offices.
“We were approached by the senior manager for Dubai Creek Harbor to design luxury condominium, based on the contemporary design created by RNA Senior Designer and Business Partner Alex Penna featured on our website,” said architect Rex Nichols, who is the principal of RNA, said in a prepared statement.
If selected to continue design work beyond the first phase of pre-construction, Fort Lauderdale-based RNA would become the lead architect for the 10-building waterfront development in a joint venture with Robert Swedroe Architects in Miami.
