Abu Dhabi-based Aldar Properties PJSC has announced the successful leasing of 90% of the residential units in Burj Mohammed Bin Rashid – named after His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai – since its launch in November 2014. Standing at 382 metres, the Burj Mohammed Bin Rashid is the tallest tower in Abu Dhabi, now home to 426 families and a total of 852 residents.
“We are extremely pleased by the market’s response to the launch of Burj Mohammed Bin Rashid, demonstrating that customers in Abu Dhabi are demanding premium quality living spaces with enviable views and world-class amenities. Tenants are finding the unique access to the rest of the World Trade Centre Abu Dhabi (WTCAD) mixed-used development, boasting 360 degree retail, commercial and hospitality offering. Burj Mohammed Bin Rashid is testament to Aldar’s commitment to building flourishing communities, enhancing the lives of those who live, work and visit Abu Dhabi,” says Talal Al Dhiyebi, chief development officer at Aldar.
Residents have a direct access to World Trade Centre Mall, a modern shopping destination catering to a diverse range of fashion and food-centric customers. Since launch in 2013, the mall has served and represented the residents of Abu Dhabi with a host of events and shopping experiences. Recently, new additions have enhanced an already vibrant dining portfolio, with the opening of Esfahan restaurant, the Mexican restaurant El Chico and Oriental eatery Zaitoun Akhdar, offering alfresco outdoor dining under Khalifa Bridge.
Linked to the WTC offices, the tower also has an easy passage to the recently launched Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, which promises to serve as the preferred destination for business visitors and tourists looking for a new place to stay in Abu Dhabi’s downtown area.
