ABU DHABI, UAE: The Mohammed Bin Zayed City Towers designed by KEO as part of Mohammed Bin Zayed City is an example of working sustainability in the region. This is according to Uwe Nienstedt , the Managing Director of KEO International Consultants’ Urban Development Division in Abu Dhabi, who insists that KEO’s masterplan for sustainability can be followed and implemented by developers and end-users will very little effort.
“The completed development will cater to the middie-income tenant market, which is currently highly underserved in Abu Dhabi... the development has been designed taking many of the principles of Estidama into account,” said Nienstedt.
The residential towers will encourage a more pedestrian lifestyle as the development is surrounded by shaded pedestrian walkways and parks. District cooling and double glazing have been employed to maximise energy efficiency, Nienstedt continues. The AED 25 billion Mohammed Bin Zayed City development is at once addressing the significant shortage of residential space in Abu Dhabi while also providing end-users and investors with affordable, sustainable housing.
