TDIC’s Mamsha Al Saadiyat wins best mixed use architecture design at international property awards for Africa and Arabia region

Mamsha Al Saadiyat – one of the many projects under the portfolio of the Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC), master developer of major tourism, cultural and residential destinations in Abu Dhabi, was recently recognised for its design by the global property industry. The International Property Awards organisation has awarded Mamsha Al Saadiyat for Best Mixed Use Architectural Design for Africa and Arabia 2016. Mamsha Al Saadiyat is one of the first residential projects situated within Saadiyat Island’s buzzing Cultural District – which is soon to be home to iconic structures such as the Zayed National Museum, Louvre Abu Dhabi, and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi.

Design consultant RTKL designed the award-winning project and aimed to apply clean architecture to compliment the beauty of the surrounding waterfront location. Its use of floor-to-ceiling glass façade resulted in a striking design to allow for a contemporary, luxury, beachfront living, and to maximise the number of sea view apartments available to investors and homeowners.

Amna Alalkeem Al Zaabi, Mamsha Al Saadiyat Project Manager at TDIC said: “Being recognised by industry peers and winning this award is a reflection of the tenacity, dedication, and perseverance TDIC and all its partners invest in contributing to the Abu Dhabi sky line, and further cements TDIC’s role as a key player in the real estate market.”

Mamsha Al Saadiyat is a 1.4 kilometre beachfront mixed-use development and is one of the first residential projects to go on sale in the Cultural District.

The project development is divided into two phases, with phase one comprising of 461 units, ranging from 1 to 4 bedrooms apartments, including lofts and townhouses. The project will host 11,000 sqm of vibrant beachfront retail and dining outlets, including the 1km promenade which offers direct access to the beach with dedicated walking and cycle paths. Its prime location means it will be within walking distance to the world-class museums and the major retail destination, “The District”.

Phase two of the project will see the development of serviced-apartment buildings and a beach retail destination, along a 0.4 km beach promenade, offering approximately 7,000 square metres of leasable area, for both retail and dining outlets.

Al Zaabi added: “As a result of the project’s unique sea-facing architectural design, and its location in the Cultural District, residents will enjoy all the perks of cultured, coastal living. The urban design has ensured it be a pedestrian, family friendly area, while its active retail waterfront offers prime retail and dining solutions.”

The International Property Awards are open to residential and commercial property professionals from around the globe, and celebrate the highest levels of achievement by companies operating in all sectors of the real estate industry. Having been awarded this award, Mamsha Al Saadiyat is now automatically entered into the overall International Property Awards competition taking place in 2017, which will determine the world’s finest property companies and projects to be recognised by the industry.
