Mamsha Al Saadiyat, a 1.4km beachfront mixed-use project, will offer residents a luxurious beach-inspired lifestyle as well as easy access to retail, dining and entertainment features; minutes from the heart of Abu Dhabi’s future cultural hub, featuring three museums: Louvre Abu Dhabi, Zayed National Museum, and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi.
The development will feature nine low-rise residential buildings with a total number of 461 units, of which 414 are apartments ranging from one to four-bedroom apartments as well as five-bedroom duplex penthouses and 47 townhouses.
Each penthouse features a private swimming pool and terrace as well as a modern kitchen, two living rooms and a dining room. In addition, there are a maid’s room and a driver’s room.
The gross floor area of the apartments will range from approximately 106 to 454 sqm, while the townhouses will range from approximately 227 to 315 sqm.
The complete project, which will be developed in phases, will also encompass a serviced-apartment building and a retail destination offering approximately 5,000 sqm of leasable area, for both retail and dining outlets.
Moreover, the townhouses at Mamsha Al Saadiyat available for prospective residents are located on the ground floor of each building. Ranging in size from two to three-bedrooms, the townhouses also feature a modern kitchen, living and dining rooms as well as a maid’s room. Some townhouses will also have a roof garden that offers direct access to the podium.
Future residents of Mamsha Al Saadiyat, who will be the first residents of the Saadiyat Cultural District, will benefit from access to a wide range of hospitality, leisure and retail offerings currently available on the island.
These include access to a 1.4 km promenade with specified walking and cycling paths, direct access to the beach, children’s playgrounds, dedicated parking for both residents and visitors, and a range of retail and dining outlets.
