Maryah Plaza East Walk
The mixed-use development sets a new standard of luxury for the Middle East’s growing financial hub
Pascall+Watson’s expertise and knowledge of the United Arab Emirates region were instrumental in our collaboration with Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to design the prestigious East Walk project on Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi. The island is growing in prominence as the areas’ financial hub and as a destination for all things luxury.
The design for the 153,000m² scheme consists of four glass and steel towers capable of housing 30,000 residents, a luxury hotel, serviced apartments, office space and car parking facilities. The ground level provides a waterfront retail promenade as well as cultural, leisure and sports facilities.
Inspiration for the towers was derived from Abu Dhabi’s nautical heritage, with sloping planes suggesting sails; balconies and terraces referencing elements of a ship’s deck. The diamond-shaped buildings maximise the use of natural light and provide spectacular views over the Gulf.
