New 7-tower ‘Pixel’ project to be built in ‘Makers District’

Dec 05 2017

The 18-hectare waterfront ‘Makers District’ on Reem Island will soon be buzzing with a new mixed-use project ‘Pixel’. Pixel’s seven towers incorporate residential apartments, co-working office space, F&B and retail to form an integral part of an exciting new neighbourhood and a unique urban living destination being built in the UAE capital.

Sprawling across a built-up area of approximately 83,000 sqm, ‘Pixel’ will offer 480 residential units within 7 mixed-use residential towers. The towers will be surrounded by quiet pocket gardens and a centralized pedestrianised plaza, that will house to over 3,500 sqm of an artisanal mix of F&B, retail and offices, as well as a signature water feature. The community is located just steps away from ‘The-Artery’, IMKAN’s unique hybrid parking garage, the cultural hub and the first unveiled building at Makers District.

Walid El Hindi, CEO of IMKAN, said: “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. 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.”

IMKAN has also appointed global engineering, design and environmental consultancy firm ‘Ramboll’ as lead consultant for the entire phase 1 of Makers District. Construction is anticipated to start in Q1 of 2018, and is scheduled for completion in Q4 2020.
