With the high targets set for speed of construction and return on investment, it is not a given that large-scale developments will deliver all of the auspices of a true community. It takes a concerted effort on the part of the development team to deliver a mix of rental and owned units, neighborhood-serving retail, parks and educational facilities, and a civic presence. This program focuses on challenges and best practices of forging such a development in the Middle Eastern context, through the lens of the 303-hectare Town Square Dubai project, anchored by a park the size of 11 football fields at its core.
