By Aarti Nagraj

Dubai’s DMCC announced that it has awarded US-based Turner the project management tender for its upcoming commercial development, the Burj 2020 District.

In a statement, DMCC said that several global project management firms pitched for the contract to develop the mega district, which will include retail, residential, business and lifestyle elements. It will also house the world’s tallest commercial tower, the Burj 2020.

The tower, which was named ‘Burj 2020’ in November 2013 following Dubai’s Expo 2020 win, is expected to house a 360-degree observation deck on the topmost floor. Its height is not yet known.

The appointment of Turner follows DMCC’s masterplan design competition for the development, announced in June 2014. Four global design firms were competing to create the masterplan, it said. More info
