The natural beauty of the Al Bateen Bay and its location within the urban framework of Abu Dhabi enhances this site as one of the premier marinas in the Middle East which will set a benchmark in terms of standard and approach.
The Al Bateen precinct is developing into a historic and strategic mixed use development site that has a considerable role to play in the future development of Abu Dhabi as a destination for commerce and tourism.
The Al Bateen precinct will showcase a diverse range of architectural design styles and scales. Al Bateen will be a mixed-use development consisting of a 2 marinas with wet berths (West bay marina for small fisherman’s vessels and the East Bay Marina for bigger yachts), dry stack for storage of boats, speciality F&B and retail components, as well as a fisherman’s community facility and a state of the art international yacht club. Other facilities include coffee shops, landscaped open-air exhibition areas and maintenance facilities for repair to fisherman’s vessels.
The proposed Al Bateen Waterfront will utilize the historic strength of the location to create a destination that is attractive to residents and tourists but also enables the fishermen to continue as they have done for generations.
