Impact study approved for under-development $1bn project
The transportation impact study for the under-development Reem Mall in Abu Dhabi has been approved by the authorities, it was announced.
The Abu Dhabi Department of Transport approved the impact study submitted for the up-and-coming entertainment, leisure, dining and shopping destination, according to executives from the mall.
Reem Mall is currently under development in partnership with Kuwait-based National Real Estate Company (NREC) and United Projects for Aviation Services (UPAC), and is expected to open in 2018.
“The Department of Transport approval is a key milestone in any project. The transportation infrastructure serving Reem Mall will be in a class of its own, making getting to-and-from Reem Mall convenient, fast, and pain free. There will be 6,800 parking spaces available to visitors,” said Shane Eldstrom, Chief Operating Officer for Reem Mall.
“The Abu Dhabi Department of Transport should be commended for the cooperative and collaborative approach taken with developers. Their team committed countless hours to working with us to ensure that the design meets the needs of the project and the community for the long term.”
