The 44-story tower will be situated at the north east of Marina Square, the premium waterfront development set on an area of 1.2 million square metres, the first phase of the iconic multi-billion-dollar project, Reem Island. The tower will reach almost 172m into the Abu Dhabi skyline and have a built-up area of 87,075m2 with parking for 500 cars. Regional Director of the company, Dr Fadi Jabri, said: “The project win is testament to Nikken’s comprehensive approach to design, which includes vital contributions from our highly specialized companies, Nikken Housing Systems and Nikken Space Design, in creating this beautiful bespoke, five-star development. Nikken Sekkei and its group of companies will be responsible for the architectural design, interior design and landscape design. We will create a luxury iconic tower in an iconic area of Abu Dhabi, which bears all the hallmarks of our strong company ethos, with sustainability very much at the forefront.” Moreover, work on the tower is expected to start next year.
