World Congress Center project consisted of development and repositioning of a landmark property in Bonn Germany to become an iconic civic symbol and a hub of economic development.

Armada Towers is a signature project for the Armada Group portfolio of assets. Located along the Jumeirah Lakes enclave of Dubai, this development was ground-breaking at the time it was completed. The development consists of 2,400 square meters of mixed-use residential space located on 39 floors reaching a height of 167 meters. alfa8 acted as an investment resource and program management for the project, ensuring quality and safeguarding our investors’ interest throughout project execution.

alfa8 developed a comprehensive master plan, and designed anchor projects for Khraish Khraish in West Dallas to assist the development team in securing nearly one square mile of real estate west of Trinity River.

The visioning campaign helped change the narrative for West Dallas, and created a strong platform for aligned city officials in support of the project.

The Five Point plan envisioned by Khraish revitalizes West Dallas, safeguards the right of local residents, and fosters investment and economic growth for the OWD community.

AON at Rockville is a mixed-use development and assembly initiative by alfa8’s capital partners to develop an industrial zone along the red metro line east of Rockville Town Center. The proximity fo the site to the RTC Metro Station makes the site a highly sought-after TOD location, and ideal for real estate positioning.   As part of components we envisioned to make the site a destination, we propose an anchor Dragonfly center as an AR Higher Ed facility bringing a mix of regional and international institutions to the Rockville.  Another feature for the development was our introduction of the Maker Row, with wide sidewalks to promote pop-up trade that builds on the industrious history of the site, and creates a vibrate destination

4500 East West Highway sits at the heart of Bethesda’s thriving urban center.  

We developed a workplace concept for Carr Properties as part of their re-branded office environments that leveraged best practices from their competitors and incorporated new user experience and storied spaces.
