Indoor arena in Abu Dhabi, with a capacity of 18,000, is designed to accommodate large-scale and private events
Miral has announced a significant construction milestone at the Yas Bay Arena development with the installation of the arena’s longest roof truss.
Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, chairman of Miral, and Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral, marked the occasion by leaving their signatures on the roof truss of the arena before it was lifted into place.
The first-of-its-kind indoor arena in Abu Dhabi, with a capacity of 18,000, is designed to accommodate large-scale and private events such as sporting competitions, corporate and MICE events, cultural performances, concerts, and other activities.
The arena is an integral part of Yas Bay’s waterfront destination, which is part of a 14 million square feet mixed-use area that is also in development on the southern end of Yas Island.
“The completion of Yas Bay Arena is a significant milestone for Yas Island. It is a testament of our commitment to creating world-class attractions within the live entertainment industry. It complements Yas Bay’s appeal as an emerging waterfront leisure and entertainment district and our overall ambition of making Yas Island a top global destination that entertains, thrills and excites visitors,” said Al Mubarak.
Alongside Yas Bay Arena, the Yas Bay project will comprise a promenade and pier with 37 cafés and restaurants, 19 retail outlets, a beach club, and two hotels.
