Abu Dhabi’s Imkan is to build seven towers at its Makers District cluster on Reem Island. These mixed-use high-rises, branded as “Pixel” will have a built-up area of 83,000 square metres and offer 480 residential units.
The towers will be close to ‘The-Artery’, Imkan’s hybrid parking garage and cultural hub and the first building in Makers District, which will encompass 18-hectares and on the waterfront. The spread will also have 3,500 square metres for an “artisanal mix” of F&B, retail and offices, as well as a signature water feature.
”Pixel is a vibrant human scale destination, designed to offer its occupants a unique and soulful place to enrich their lives, collaborate in work and engage with their community,” said Walid El Hindi, CEO. “It is also a key milestone in Imkan’s journey to establish Makers District as the new beating heart of Abu Dhabi and a place that reflects the best standards in building and design that will benefit end users, and the wider community.”
Phase 1 construction is expected to start in Q1-18 and with a scheduled completion in Q4-20.
Imkan has assigned Rotterdam-based MVRDV to design the community. Its 15,000 square metre landscaped public spaces have been designed by Copenhagen based BIG, recent winner of the Agha Khan Award for Architecture.
