The Middle East region is not short of architectural talent and design spirit to construct beautiful and efficient structures, and the world continues to realize this.


Earlier this week, the region collected new wins thanks to Dubai and Beirut.

Town Square won the Grand Award for ‘Best International Site Plan’ at the Gold Nugget 2016 Awards,  voted from over 665 entries in 48 categories.


“This adds to the ‘live at your price’ value proposition of the Town Square homes. Our goal is to offer diverse choices of lifestyle amenities and leisure attractions in close proximity for our residents, and create added value for their investment in Dubai’s most sought-after affordable community,” Fred Durie, CEO at Nshama, said in comments on the win.


Spread over 31 million square feet, the mixed-use project was designed by private developer Nshama, and is located in New Dubai, near the site of the future World Expo 2020.


It offers one-bedroom apartments priced at AED499,000, three-bedroom apartments priced at approximately one million dirhams and town-houses priced at AED999,988.

The skyscraper just landed the ‘Best Tall Building Middle East & Africa 2016’ award, granted by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH).


The 50-meter high residential tower is located in the eastern district of the capital of Beirut, and was designed by Orange Architects and developed by Masharii real estate development.


It features 14 90-degree rotating floor plans divided into 21 luxurious departments, with sizes ranging from 117 to 234 square meters. An exclusive 10th floor apartment is regarded as the jewel of The Cube.


Following the win, The Cube announced plans to participate in Dream 2016, an annual real estate exhibition set to be held in Beirut from July 11 to July 14, and will feature major projects in Lebanon.


It also plans to participate in the Arabia Property Awards 2016, part of the International Property Awards, which credits top performers in the real estate industry.
