Work has started on phase one of the AED3.5 billion Al Ain Convention Center, the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) announced Sunday.

The development, designed by Shankland Cox architects, will include a convention center, hotels, offices and serviced apartments in a micro-city connected by walkways and open spaces. Developers will also develop an existing waterway that will run through the site as part of their drive to create a sustainable environment in the heart of the city.

“ADNEC is very pleased to commence development on this landmark project which aims to create a vibrant business and lifestyle destination in Al Ain which will further boost the allure of the city,” said HE Ali Bin Harmal Al Dhaheri, managing director of ADNEC.

Al Fara’a General Contracting have been appointed contractor for the first phase of the development, which involves the extension of an existing conference hall onsite. Contractors for the rest of the project are expected to be appointed in the coming months.
