Located on Reem Island, Shams Abu Dhabi is going to be one of the most coveted residential and commercial areas in the capital. Spread over 25 per cent of the island's total land area, 90 per cent of it is devoted to residential units and the rest is taken up for commercial and retail purposes. Once completed, the development will accommodate about 45,000 residents.

Shams Abu Dhabi has unique developments. The Gate Towers and Arc serves as an iconic landmark in the area. It is a mixed-use project that offers thousands of residences, retail space, offices and leisure podium. The Penthouse Collection has over 20 penthouses with amazing views of the Abu Dhabi skyline.

The Sky and Sun Towers offer one to four-bedroom apartments and penthouses. The 74-story Sky Tower caters to residential and commercial needs. It has separate lobbies and gates to apartments and offices not only to segregate the building according to its function, but also to offer privacy to its residents. The luxury apartment complexes are equipped with modern lifestyle amenities like a swimming pool, healthcare and recreational facilities, barbecue area, round-the-clock security and centrally air-conditioned rooms. Meanwhile, the 65-story Sun Tower is an entirely residential building. Both towers are linked by a podium that houses the BOUTIK Mall as well as fitness and sports facilities, and dining outlets.

Another development in the area is Meera, which is composed of two towers that provide the residents of its one to three-bedroom apartments with a luxurious lifestyle.

Shams Abu Dhabi aims to create an enticing lifestyle hub that is ideal for working and living. It is looking at attracting Emiratis and expatriates, and is expected to become a thriving residential hub.

Reem Island can be easily accessed from the city centre. Its proximity to the new central business district, Al Maryah Island, makes it an impressive residential as well as business destination for all.
