THE MAKERS' DISTRICT
ON AL REEM ISLAND
ABOUT MAKERS' DISTRICT
Over the project’s entire lifespan, more than 4,000 homes and 100,000 square metres of office space will be built, alongside food & beverage units, an “art hotel” and a small marina.
The Makers’ District concept is targeted at millennials. The office space will be geared towards smaller, creative companies and apartment units to younger buyers, including families. The Dh100 million structure “The Artery” unveiled at Cityscape Abu Dhabi has been described as “like the seed for creating the project’s soul”.
Abu Dhabi is the first Makers’ District that will be brought to market and Mr El Hindi (the managing director of Imkan) said despite the Emirate’s focus on culture through developments such as the Louvre, he believes there is a gap in terms of spaces for those looking to create art, rather than display it.
