The development will be located along the Abu Dhabi-Dubai highway and opposite to Al Raha Gardens. It will be built on reclaimed land at the Al Raha Beach complex occupying an area of 5.7 mln. m² with a total built-up area of 12 mln. m².
It will offer world class residential, commercial, cultural, entertainment and public facilities, which will house up to 120,000 residents. The scheme will consist of 11 precincts each with their own distinct personalities and appeal.
Al Raha beach development will be a new city district that will serve as the new gateway to Abu Dhabi city and boast an arrangement of 60-storey towers to low-rise developments.
Mark Prior, EC Harris' leader in the region, said: "This major contract win further reinforces our flourishing existing business in the UAE. Our locally based team of experts, which will grow to more than 250 people this year, has a reputation that is second to none in the delivery of major projects in the region."
