Abu Dhabi city is a mixed bag of high-end and small-scale business locations. The government and its entities are currently investing billions for infrastructure and development projects. The present focus is on projects such as Etihad Rail, airport expansion, Al Fayah Park and Saadiyat Island museums, to name a few.
In terms of high-class business districts, there are quite a few prime locations within a moderate budget scattered within the city.
Sowwah Square on Al Maryah Island offers exceptional Grade ‘A’ commercial space with sophisticated amenities needed to set up business. Forming the commercial center of the island, it consists of 450,000 square meters of office, retail and hotel spaces. However, leasing activities in the area are currently put on hold pending the publication of regulations governing the area.
Standing tall at 59 storeys above its peers, the Burj Mohammed bin Rashid (formerly called World Trade Center Abu Dhabi) is another remarkable landmark in the emirate. It is a completely modern mixed-use development comprising offices, residences, a mall, a souk and a hotel. The development is built over the site of the old central market which was the most prominent business center back in the day. Conveniently located on Hamdan Street, this premium office destination offers 72,000 square meters of office space and immediate access to a comprehensive range of amenities including business services and leisure facilities.
The Abu Dhabi Airport Business City is a lucrative option for businesses in the logistics, aviation and related fields. Established to own and operate free zones around the Abu Dhabi International Airport, it covers five business districts that provide comprehensive warehousing and office solutions. It also includes residential, recreational, retail and lifestyle facilities.
