Maryah Plaza East Walk, FarGlory Sowwah Development Co. Ltd.

Pascall+Watson worked in collaboration with Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to design the prestigious East Walk residential project on Al Maryah Island, Abu Dhabi. The island is being promoted as the future financial hub of the Middle East and the destination for all things luxury.

The design for the 153,000m² scheme consists of four glass and steel towers housing 30,000 residents, a luxury hotel and serviced apartments, together with office space and car parking facilities. The ground level provides a waterfront retail promenade, cultural, leisure and sports facilities.

The elegant towers have been designed to reflect Abu Dhabi’s nautical heritage, with sloping planes suggesting sails, and balconies and terraces that reference elements of a ship’s deck. The diamond-shaped buildings maximise the flow of natural light and optimise views over the Gulf.

Our local knowledge and expertise, and our understanding of the UAE region were all key factors to realising the project efficiently.
