ADNH unveils The Gate project
Abu Dhabi National Hotels (ADNH), Abu Dhabi’s leading hospitality group, has announced the launch of one of Abu Dhabi’s most prestigious projects, The Gate.
Taking its name from ADNH’s vision of creating an iconic and inspiring gateway to Abu Dhabi, The Gate will be a mixed-use development located on Al Khaleej Street next to Zayed Sports City, approximately half way between Abu Dhabi’s central business district and Abu Dhabi International Airport. The Gate will also be in the vicinity of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Abu Dhabi International Exhibition Centre.
His Excellency Khalifa Nasser Al Mansoori, Chairman of ADNH said: “Abu Dhabi has seen tremendous growth this year, and we are extremely proud to be a part of shaping its exciting future. Our role is to build the image of Abu Dhabi not only locally and regionally, but also globally. This project will raise the profile of Abu Dhabi as an ideal destination for business and pleasure.”
The project, due for completion by mid 2008, will occupy two main development sites: the landside and waterside. The main elements of the landside site include a 265 room five star international hotel with function facilities, two serviced apartment towers with 225 one, two and three bedroom apartments, an office tower with approximately 21,000 square meters of office space, a 20,000 square meter retail mall, a verdant central park as well as hotel support facilities.
The waterside development facilities consist of 50 chalets, retail village, beach club and an adventure water world. The site plans to become a leading location for relaxation and entertainment, where visitors will have access to a mix of recreation zones, health and spa facilities, retail zone, restaurants, and beach facilities.
