- A sustainable masterplan, Reem Downtown is innovatively designed and will incorporate the first light rail and metro in the Capital
Tamouh Investments, the Abu Dhabi-based real estate developer, unveiled today the masterplan of Reem Downtown, an innovatively designed development, located at the north-western shores of Reem Island, spanning a total area of 104 hectares, and 3.4 million sq. m total built-up area. Reem Downtown is set to become the first mix-used development in Abu Dhabi that seamlessly merges the contemporary with the traditional design, in a unique setting that embraces a fully connected transport infrastructure with the first light rail and metro in the Capital.
Reem Downtown’s topography is scientifically drawn to enable uninterrupted sea-views from across the island and a micro-climate control where the entire city is naturally air conditioned throughout the hottest months of the year. The unique design of the island encourages healthy living and lifestyle of its residents and visitors; the pedestrian and cycling links, coupled with a waterfront promenade, mangroves observation center, public parks and sports fields, Reem Downtown is fully walkable.
Ghanem Mubarak Al Mansoori, the Chief Executive Officer of Tamouh Investments said: “For over a decade, Tamouh has been a contributor to the overall real estate landscape in Abu Dhabi and to the realization of the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.”
“Reem Downtown is yet another testament to Tamouh’s innovative approach to developing strategic mixed-use developments that not only answer to the diversified needs of the capital’s residents and businesses, but also reinforces Abu Dhabi’s position as a residential, touristic and business hub on the global map. We believe that Reem Downtown is an iconic project, and we anticipate strong interest from the local, regional and international investors,” Al Mansoori continued.
Reem Downtown is provisioned to accommodate 12,300 residential units with an estimated population of 27,000. Split into eight zones, each one is branded in different character areas that are distinctive in style and function. With parklands to the north, natural mangrove reserves to the east, high-rise towers to the south, and traditional low-rise buildings to the west, Reem Downtown is suited to all.
