The Saadiyat Cultural District is definitely one of the much highly anticipated developments in Abu Dhabi. It is expected to become a meeting place for some of the great minds (local and international) in the arts field and arts enthusiasts alike. When finished, it will house iconic structures designed to attract more visitors to the capital and eventually put it in the global tourism map – Louvre Abu Dhabi, Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, Zayed National Museum, Maritime Museum and Performing Arts Centre.
Expected to equally attract property investors to the area is Mamsha Al Saadiyat (Arabic for “Saadiyat Walk”), the Cultural District’s first residential project. It will offer buyers and tenants a plethora of housing options – from one to four-bedroom apartments and serviced apartments to massive penthouses and townhouses spread in five clusters.
The homes will all boast modern architectural elements and will be characterised by huge windows to allow more natural light to stream in. Located at the water’s edge, residents will have plenty of opportunities to watch the sunset or take a dip at the beach anytime of day.
Mamsha Al Saadiyat will be littered with dining, retail and entertainment features. It will also incorporate pedestrian and cycling paths, and health clubs.
Aside from the cultural landmarks in the area, homeowners will also have access to The District that will offer both indoor and outdoor retail and dining space. It will be divided into four zones: Luxury Street hosting luxury brands, High Street featuring boutiques, The Crescent Arcade comprising a cinema, entertainment area, and retail and dining establishments, and The Canal Zone with a motley of food outlets.
Another interesting address is The Park for residents’ various recreational pursuits. Offering scenic vistas of Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, it will be the perfect place for families to unwind on weekends. It will have a children’s play zone and shaded areas.
Overall, Mamsha Al Saadiyat will be the perfect blend of residential, recreational, cultural and shopping options, giving future residents a complete lifestyle experience
