Leading players in the regional real estate industry will descend upon Cityscape Abu Dhabi next week, as developers use the event as a key platform to announce their latest projects and provide updates on existing developments.
Leading the way in new announcements is the exciting new project by Wahat Al Zaweya, which will be showcasing an eco-friendly, self sustainable, mixed-use community development at the four-day event, taking place from 22-25 April at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
Spread over 22.7 million square metres of land currently in the Faqaa corridor of UAE’s Garden City Al Ain, Wahat Al Zaweya will be available in four phases, with the master developer looking to sell 1,500 available villa plots in Phase One.
“Wahat Al Zaweya will become an ideal weekend and getaway destination for local Emirati and expatriate families,” said Khaldoun Saleh, General Manager of Wahat Al Zaweya. “The project will comprise holiday or weekend homes that co-exist with a host of other developments including education institutes, healthcare facilities, retail and other services.”
The Libyan / British joint venture architectural practice, Allabina LCE will also launch their innovative 400 metre SZ Tower concept at Cityscape Abu Dhabi. Surrounded by a ‘Knowledge Souk,’ the tower’s futuristic design is inspired by the form of the Arabian cloak (bisht) and inner garment (thawb), with the scaled model taking centre stage at Allabina LCE’s exhibition stand.
Meanwhile the Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC) has announced that it will be start taking bookings at Cityscape Abu Dhabi for the residential component of the Eastern Mangroves complex in the UAE capital.
Available for lease immediately following the event, the residential component of Easter Mangroves consists of The Residences and The Promenade Apartments, providing 220 residential units, from studio apartments to two four bedroom penthouses.
Under the Patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, Cityscape Abu Dhabi is now in its 6th year.
The exhibition has firmly established itself as the region’s leading real estate development and investment event, which last year attracted more than 25,000 visitors from 78 countries looking to learn of the latest developments and real estate market trends.
Chris Speller, Group Director for Cityscape Abu Dhabi said: “Cityscape Abu Dhabi remains the focal point of the regional real estate sector, with developments on show that have never seen before at the event, including the projects by Wahat Al Zaweya, and the Sheikh Zayed Housing Programme.
“The many exciting projects being showcased that have been recently completed, or soon to enter the market in Abu Dhabi are all a vital part of the UAE capital’s 2030 strategic plan. The Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council will also showcase a much anticipated update on Vision 2030 at Cityscape Abu Dhabi, which is expected to be another of the show’s highlights.”
