The Gate-Shams in Abu Dhabi

Wednesday, November 30, 2005

The Gate Shams Abu Dhabi is a massive multi-use project being planned for Abu Dhabi that will include several large towers.

These towers, shaped as if they open up and welcome the sky, represent the contemporary design and vision of the project.

The first of the plots to be released has been given a working name of 'The Gate', as its five impressive towers form the southern entrance to the Shams Abu Dhabi development. With four residential towers of 60 stories and a single 75-story mixed residential and commercial use tower, this plot encompasses 3,000 residential units with accompanying underground parking and environmental terraces and in total represents more than one million square metres of development space.

The second plot represents what is generally being referred to as the Northern or Upper Village-a residential cluster of buildings ranging from six to 35 stories which will be bisected by a major canal. This neighbourhood is expected to be known as a slightly upscale residential area known for its serenity.

The third plot is composed of several blocks dominated by two iconic towers at the northern tip of the development. These towers, shaped as if they open up and welcome the sky, represent the contemporary design and vision of the project. These towers will form the commercial centre of the adjoining Upper Village.
