City Walk is an open, design-inspired neighbourhood in the heart of Dubai with hundreds of exclusive shops, restaurants, and leisure activities set among 34 low-rise residential buildings, tree-lined avenues, and a stunning collection of contemporary street art murals.


City Walk with 22 different types of Low Rise Residential and Commercial Buildings offered an excellent opportunity to offer a range of design, fabrication, and installation solutions.

Each building in the city walk has its unique architecture with many kinds of façade materials, including glass, terracotta, aluminium cladding, GRC fins, stainless steel railing, louvres and decorative fins spanning up to 14m. The façade types have many irregular shapes and many interfaces to other trades, so the project required lots of façade details and calculations; mass production was not possible.

The City Walk Glass Box with a height of 5m supported by glass fins and spider support was engineered in-house and verified by 3rd party. Erection was supervised by our Engineers and special installation team.
