The Tadawul-listed Emaar - The Economic City is developing King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), the region’s largest-of-its-kind real estate project in Saudi Arabia. The 181 km 2 development on the Red Sea coast, energises the economy through diverse components including a port, industrial zone, and residential projects. The focal point of the coastal strip is called the Coastal Towers. Emaar - The Economic City appointed EDGE to design five towers ranging from G+25 to G+60 in height.
The 70-Storey tower is integrated with Dubai Canal’s promenade on the ground plane. Great care has been taken to ensure continuity of pedestrian flows and activate the waterfront with activities, dining, and focal features
The design has been developed in conjunction with ADNEC to serve and support the growing exhibition community and businesses. The creation of pedestrian friendly areas, inspired by the spaces found in New York, together with a desire to create a true visitor destination can be best exemplified by the creation of a 35,000m2 outdoor exhibition plaza area.
