The Tanzanian AICL Group and Edinburgh Crowland Management Ltd. Joint Venture are pleased to announce they have entered into an agreement with New York & Dubai-based award-winning design architect xCassia for the design of a 370,000m2 integrated mixed-use destination development on a 20-hectare 4km-long site on Zanzibar’s west coast, 15km from UNESCO’s World Heritage site of Stone Town.
Poised to hold a special appeal for domestic, regional and international visitors that value integrated leisure, lifestyle, social and cultural destinations within contained, accessible and secure environments, the Zanzibar Domino creates multiple points of revenue designed to engage residents and outside guests alike throughout the year across all key sites of the proposed master plan.
"First sketched in Paris in 2009 after my late father, two sons and I played a round of dominos, I dreamed of building this project for over a decade. Between its innate mathematical order and geometries found in nature, its pure lines and proportions that evoke growth, progress and freedom, it had all the bearings of an icon anyone could remember and draw on a paper napkin. All it lacked was the right visionary investor and site to make it come true." - Jean-Paul Cassia
