#PROJECT: YAS ISLAND

Abu Dhabi says 'Yas' to the world

Leading property developer ALDAR Properties PJSC today announced plans for Yas Island, one of the largest natural islands in Abu Dhabi.


Marina at night.

Yas Island will be a prestigious world-class leisure destination, with mixed-use tourist attractions including beaches, entertainment, shopping, hotels, residences, golfing, equestrian facilities and motor racing. Yas Island will host the world's first 'Ferrari World'.

Outlining the scale of the project, ALDAR's Chairman Ahmed Ali Al Sayegh commented on its size and ambitions: 'Yas Island will combine the many natural attractions of an island with the world's most popular leisure activities. We have taken mankind's passion for the sea, for racing cars, shopping, golfing, and luxurious living, and designed them all into a single unique setting. Yas Island will be the only destination in the world that combines our desert and maritime traditions with the fascinations of Florida and the elegance of Monte Carlo. It will be the world's most complete leisure destination. "

"At ALDAR Properties, our business model is based on strategically integrated residential and leisure developments, with particular emphasis on infrastructure, planning, and environmental protection. With the launch of Yas Island we are inviting the whole world to our land. We are inviting the world to say 'Yas'," he said.

CEO Ronald Barrott elaborated on Yas Island, and its many attractions: "We have been working to create a unique destination that will present Abu Dhabi to the global tourist market. Our intention is to bring together families, friends and individuals seeking options of entertainment, excitement, nature and peace in one location," he said.

Shopping will be one of the key attractions, with retail areas occupying a staggering 300,000 square metres. Ferrari World will be a major highlight, through ALDAR's rights to a Ferrari-themed park, museum and theatre. These attractions are linked to a top quality motor race track on which visitors can experience the thrill of the exclusive Ferrari Driving School (Pilota Ferrari), kart track and dune buggies. They can also test the limits of their own cars under professional instruction.

More peacefully, located on the island will be two major marinas and yachting facilities; resort hotels, lagoon hotels and hotel apartments; a water park, three golf courses, a polo field and equestrian centre, restaurants and cafes, and mixed type residences. Plans are underway to adapt sensitive and beautiful parts of the island into conservation areas. A number of very select individual homes will be made available on the island, at a later stage.

ALDAR said that more details would be announced in due course, but that Yas Island would feature a range of attractions and activities that will appeal to people of all age groups, and retain the interest of every member of a visiting family. The company also expects most people to stay on Yas Island for a minimum of seven days, and all activities - shopping, sports, leisure, recreation and others - are designed around long-stay visitors.

Yas Island, spread over an impressive area of 2,500 hectares, is roughly one third the size of the island of Abu Dhabi, and features a beach front shoreline of approximately 32 kms. Infrastructure will be developed around the Yas Island project in advance and to the operational benefit of the capital city. A new ten-lane highway will connect Yas Island to the new Abu Dhabi International Airport, the Abu Dhabi-Dubai highway, and the city of Abu Dhabi at Mina Port. Yas Island will also connect to ALDAR's signature Al Raha Beach development.

Yas Island is easily accessible by road, air and water. International visitors flying into Abu Dhabi will be able to see the bright glow of the red Ferrari World roof from the air, and can reach Yas Island within minutes of disembarking. Just ten minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport and a similar distance from ALDAR's Al Raha Beach, Yas Island is located at the gateway to Abu Dhabi, and will target the 1.6 billion catchment area located within six hours flying time to the UAE.

Apart from the Ferrari World theme park, the projected development of Al Yas incorporates a number of hotels, resorts, a race track, as well as a 300,000 square metre shopping mall, the biggest in Abu Dhabi.

كما استمع سموه من الشيخ سلطان بن طحنون إلى شرح كامل عن مراحل تشييد مشروع مجمع المعارض الدولي في أبوظبي الذي سيحقق نقلة نوعية في صناعة المعارض والمؤتمرات بدولة الإمارات وأسواق الشرق الأوسط وبالتالي جذب واستقطاب معظم الشركات العالمية المنظمة للمعارض في العالم إلى ابوظبي.

وتبلغ مساحة جزيرة صير بني ياس 87 كيلومترا مربعا وتبعد حوالي 200 كم عن مدينة ابوظبي ويستهدف مشروع الجزيرة السياحي البيئي الجديد استقطاب 170 ألف زائر عام 2016 بنسبة 50 بالمئة من الزوار المحليين و50 بالمئة من دول مجلس التعاون وجميع دول العالم.

وحسب مجسمات وتصاميم مشروع جزيرة صير بني ياس فان الجزيرة سيجري تقسيمها حسب نوعية الحيوانات والبيئة المحيطة بها وذلك إلى ثلاث مناطق رئيسية عربية وآسيوية وافريقية بحيث تتضمن نشاطات سياحية بيئية مثيرة كمراقبة الطيور والحيوانات النادرة وغيرها في محمياتها الطبيعية ورحلات السفاري الإفريقية والغوص وغيرها.

And why would you like a project to be built on a natural island that you say is home to many wild animals? Do you not understand that doing that will destroy their environment which is an extremely delicate balance?
