RAK's Al Marjan Island completes Corniche phase 1
Connecting Al Hamra Village, the project creates a 3.5 km pedestrian and cycling track along the waterfront
Al Marjan Island (AMI) Company has completed the first phase of the Al Marjan Island Corniche project - creating a 3km long pedestrian and cycling track along the waterfront.
The project links Al Marjan with Al Hamra Village through an additional line parrallel to Sheikh Mohammed bin Salem Road.
The Corniche reflects Al Marjan Island's vision of a contemporary waterfront village with innovative modern designs that complement the coastal environment and encourage outdoor living and activities.
It is located on the south-western edge of the Island, and connects the Island's entrance in the south with the proposed Food & Beverage Boardwalk to the North.
Architect Abdullah Rashed Al Abdooli, managing director of AMI Company, said: "This picturesque Corniche is designed to promote family activities and healthy living in a waterside location.
"It was thoughtfully designed with ascalable facilities and public spaces that encourage both outdoor living and recreation activities with family and friends. It also includes unique public art exhibits celebrating the rich history of Ras Al Khaimah and Northern Emirates".
"The Corniche is one of the hottest projects on AMI.
"It will follow highest standards, latest designs and innovative architectural styles, developing a unique destination that will further strengthen the position of RAK as a global tourism hub for coming decades.
"This project has been created based on the findings of a comprehensive study done by AMI to integrate the real estate projects in RAK Emirate and provide a venue for residents to engage in different types of sports activities," Al Abdooli added.
