Chapman Taylor showcases masterplan for community on Al Reem Island

A mix of leisure, dining, retail and cultural facilities and experiences are interspersed throughout the Al Reem Residential Community

Chapman Taylor has unveiled the masterplan concept for the Al Reem Residential Community on Abu Dhabi’s Al Reem Island. The development features multi-tower housing and hospitality, and will be fully integrated within the natural environment, with beautiful views and extensive green landscaping.

According to a statement, the ambitious urban design creates a new city district which combines respect for the region’s history and heritage with a bold embrace of the future within a landscape of rivers, mangroves, beaches and desert.

The design for the site integrates three parcels of land, which are currently separated by roads via an elevated parkscape and living bridges, providing the sense of being one community with a shared identity. The concept seeks to actively connect the new city district via a series of landscaped podiums that serve as both an asset for the residences and as a visual signature for the masterplan, the firm said.

According to Chapman Taylor, the eight towers which will stand on the sites feature expressive, futuristic façades, the designs for which are inspired by the mangroves which make the island famous, each appearing to “grow out of” the elevated landscaped podiums. The curves of the organically flowing architecture draw to mind the flowing riverscapes around the mangroves and the undulating dunes of the desert, it added.

“All these towers step in height, with the highest being over 200m tall, with a combined GFA of 258,000sqm,” said a company spokesman. The residences are provided in a mix of one, two and three-bed and penthouse formats. One tower includes a luxury, 600-key hotel for tourists and business travelers, he stated.

He concluded, the masterplan envisages the fully integrated urban community as an engine for the future growth of the residential masterplan and the wider Central Reem Island urban district.
