The Cultural District Project mimics the existing urban fabric, composed of 2 major plazas connected by a central circulation spine. Alleyways weave through the site, creating pockets in between the buildings that act as courtyards, event spaces, and cafe spill-out spaces. Built form is a mix of warehouses and contemporary blocks with double height spaces, and overlapping volumes, for leasing to art galleries, libraries, retail outlets, F&B outlets, activities, performing arts, and F&B outlets – a mixed-use cultural district that caters to all.
Located in the mixed use commercial/residential area of the Al Dhaith South district of Ras Al Khaimah, the 91,112 SqFt development site is situated next to extensive villa area to the South and a series of car showrooms which border the main coastal highway leading into the city centre to the North. Neighboring services include Amasy Wedding Hall, a girl’s high school, the Birla Institute, Ras Al Khaimah Police HQ and a newly developed sports center. Pre-development planning is underway with breaking ground scheduled in Q4, 2017.
