Emerald Gateway Chic Tower

Abu Dhabi, UAE

Abu Dhabi’s Emerald Gateway project is a unique 3.5 km long development located along Coast Road, the main highway between Abu Dhabi’s bustling downtown and the Abu Dhabi International Airport. The ambitious project comprises of 88 towers situated in two distinct districts bisected by Coast Road, the Canal Park Neighborhood and the Recreational Park Neighborhood. Featuring generous pedestrian and community-related amenities such as extensive landscaped gardens, restaurants and retail shops, terraces for ground level cafes, a roundabout boardwalk along the adjacent canal, tennis courts, children’s play areas, two large soccer field-size green spaces, reflecting pools, and a large central Sculpture Park, the entire development offers tremendous potential to become Abu Dhabi’s premier high-end residential and hotel destination.

The iconic Chic Tower consists of an 18-storey residential tower on a two-storey podium base. The metal-panel skin on the sides of the building extends to a height of 86 meters in order to form a pair of sleek fins that crown the distinctive tower. Each of the tower’s 60 one, two and three bedroom residential units features modern, open-concept living space and an ample exterior balcony. Strategic placement of the residential balconies provides shading for the main living areas within the units, while maintaining views of the lush surrounding Emerald Gateway community. The two-storey podium provides a retail area for shops, restaurants and cafes, as well as the lobby entrances to the residential units above. Additionally, the top of the podium offers abundant amenity space for the residents, including gym facilities, saunas, change rooms, a large garden terrace & shaded outdoor deck, and a swimming pool. Units located at this level also feature generous private outdoor terraces.
