ALDAR announces new plans for Noor Al Ain Development
ALDAR Properties today announced that it was revising its Noor Al Ain project in Al Ain to cope with new guidelines developed by the Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC) through the UPC’s constant consultation process with its developer partners.
“ALDAR and UPC and a number of other developers and consultants have been working closely on a new set of guidelines that will evidently be integrated into the Urban Structure Framework Plan for Al Ain,” said Ahmed Ali Al Sayegh, Chairman, ALDAR Properties. “ALDAR is keen to bring its heralded concept of integrated development to Al Ain and will do whatever it takes to deliver the future growth of the city as envisioned in the plan while ensuring that the culture and heritage of the area are preserved.”
The revised Noor Al Ain multi-use development will feature a mix of residential, office, retail, luxury, and entertainment facilities, at the heart of Al Ain. ALDAR will establish several residential buildings, a retail centre, a hotel, class "A" office space, and a host of entertainment and leisure facilities that will set the development apart as a sought-after destination. The height of the buildings will be reduced in line with the new guidelines of the UPC. These guidelines are intended to preserve the unique architectural pattern of the oasis city.
Falah Al Ahbabi, UPC General Manager, commented: “The Urban Structure Framework Plan for Al Ain will be officially announced in the coming months and we at UPC appreciate the cooperation and dedication that ALDAR has shown in revising the Noor Al Ain development to adhere to the principles of the Plan. This truly shows the constructive partnership already established between the government and private sectors to serve the Abu Dhabi Emirate’s 2030 Vision.”
The hallmark of the development will be Noor Al Ain shopping centre, which will provide 160,000 square metres of retail space. Combining value-for-money everyday items and a wide array of high-end luxury brands from around the world, this retail centre will cater to the versatile needs of residents, visitors and shoppers. Integral to this development are spa, and multi-screen cinema facilities that promise to transform the shopping centre into a full-fledged entertainment experience. While the rooftop gardens will bring the greenery effect into the interior, a fun-triggering water park and an indoor beach will help make the beach life experience a yearlong option for the residents of this inland city.
The project aims to transform Al Jimi Mall, a bustling shopping centre, into a full-fledged development that will enhance Al Ain’s attraction as a premium leisure destination. The multi-use development is set to become the focal point for the over 500,000 residents as well as visitors who are lured by the Garden City’s natural beauty and other tourist attractions.
