Many high-profile projects have been built in the UAE over the past few years, from shopping malls with mountain ski slopes to record-tall towers.
During the pandemic, time seemed to stop for most of the world, but the Emirates’ cityscape continued evolving. High-rise buildings became even taller, land plots were cleared, and new projects were announced. Abu Dhabi will soon feature new impressive landmarks to draw the attention of people from all over the world. Here are the most fascinating ones:
This Riviera-styled project sprawling for 1.6 kilometers along the coast of the Persian Gulf, between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, was developed by Imkan.
The first phase that consists of 293 small rancho-style villas is planned for completion by mid-2023. The community’s fundamental principle is a careful attitude to nature, which is why it is aimed at preserving 100,000 species of trees, sea turtles, and other wild animals in Ghantoot Reserve.
The master plan includes a private school, shops, restaurants, boutique hotels, parks, cultural heritage sites, and a canal that adds an extra eight kilometers’ worth of first-rate waterfront properties.
Natural History Museum Abu Dhabi
In March, the Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism announced the plans of creating a museum in Cultural District on Saadiyat Island. The project called Natural History Museum Abu Dhabi is at the construction stage and planned for completion in late 2025.
The museum galleries will take the visitors on a trip across time and space over 13.8 billion years from the origin of the Universe to the glimpses of its potential future.
Louvre Abu Dhabi Residences
Louvre Abu Dhabi Residences will be located in Saadiyat Grove. The project completion is scheduled for 2025. It will consist of 400 residences, i.e. studios, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, and five penthouses.
The building is inspired by the Louvre Abu Dhabi. Art objects and sculptures inside are reminiscent of those exhibited in the famous museum.
A particularly large-scale project called Reem Mall is planned on the continuously developing Al Reem Island, Abu Dhabi.
Reem Mall will house over 450 shops, a hypermarket, two food courts, a multiplex cinema, as well as Snow Abu Dhabi, which will be approximately four times larger than Ski Dubai.
