UAE-based developer Miral has announced the development of A’L BAHAR, a new beachfront community located on Abu Dhabi’s Corniche.

Recently launched by Abu Dhabi Municipality, Miral has been appointed to undertake the design and development of the project, which will be implemented across 80,000 square metres of mixed-use space.

The beachfront will comprise basketball and beach volleyball courts, soccer pitches, an outdoor gym, kids play area, spaces for concerts and community events as well as an inflatable floating structure for activities.

A promenade, stretching over half a kilometre in length, will also be set aside for walking. The project is scheduled to open by Q1 2018.

Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral, said: "This project reflects our continuous efforts to make Abu Dhabi a top tourism and entertainment destination, even beyond Yas Island by expanding our expertise to create a new leisure experience on Abu Dhabi’s highly popular Corniche.

“With its inclusive atmosphere and authentic experiences, we’re excited and confident that the beachfront project will make a valuable contribution to the capital’s family appeal as from a wellness and entertainment stand point.”

Miral is opening up the opportunity for leasing the food and beverage and retail space at the beachfront project.
