Master Development Plan of Abu Dhabi Corniche.

ABU DHABI- The Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities, DUPM, has endorsed the Master Development Plan of Abu Dhabi Corniche aimed at enhancing the tourist attractions on the corniche, rendering it a superb recreational facility befitting the profile of Abu Dhabi.

Upgrading the corniche will also offer visitors a unique opportunity to practice a variety of recreational and sports activities in a venue boasting world-class standards.

Renovating Abu Dhabi Corniche reflects the commitment of the department to address the concerns of the government for enhancing the infrastructure needed to ensure premium living while maintaining the values of sustainability.

The department tasked Miral Asset Management to undertake the project as the main contractor as part of its vision aimed to boost cooperation between the public and private sectors.

The department expects to complete Phase I of the project in March 2018. Phase I spans an area of 78 thousand square meters with a host of recreational, service and commercial facilities. They include a water park with lots of activities and aqua sports, outdoor cinema, theatre, outdoor sports hall, open adventures and playgrounds, kiosks and restaurants, and retail outlets selling F&B, beach attire and swimming kits.

The Abu Dhabi City Municipality confirms that the rest of the corniche areas will not be affected by the improvement project and will remain open to welcome visitors.
