Abu Dhabi master developer TDIC says Mamsha Al Saadiyat will feature apartments, townhouses and retail village
Abu Dhabi's Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC), revealed on Tuesday the first residential development in the Saadiyat Cultural District.
Mamsha Al Saadiyat, meaning Saadiyat Walk, which will be showcased at Cityscape Global 2014, is a 1.4km beachfront mixed-use project that will offer residents a luxurious beach-inspired lifestyle, said the master developer of major tourism, cultural and residential destinations in Abu Dhabi
The Saadiyat Cultural District will become home to three iconic world-class museums – Louvre Abu Dhabi, Zayed National Museum and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi – along with The District, a premier retail destination that is being developed in partnership with L Real Estate (LRE).
Comprising five clusters, each approximately 250 metres long, the residential development will feature nine low-rise residential buildings including apartments and townhouses.
The unit sizes will range from one to four-bedrooms to lofts and penthouses, with a gross floor area from 106 to 454 square metres.
The complete project, which will be developed in phases, will also encompass a serviced-apartment building and a retail village offering approximately 5,000 square metres of leasable area, for both retail and dining outlets.
Ali Al Hammadi, TDIC’s CEO, said: "We are very pleased to announce the launch of Mamsha Al Saadiyat, which will further enhance the appeal of both the Cultural District and Saadiyat as a whole, as a one-of-a-kind development, both regionally and internationally.
"Due to its unique location, community features and services, we anticipate strong demand for Mamsha Al Saadiyat as it will offer residents an address like no other in the world before."
Residents and visitors will be able to enjoy the use of various health clubs, direct access to the beach, plus dedicated pedestrian and cycling lanes located throughout Mamsha Al Saadiyat.
