24 - February - 2015

Dewan Architects & Engineers, one of the most highly ranked MENA Architecture firms, has begun work on the design of Reem Mall, Abu Dhabi’s new up and coming entertainment, dining and shopping destination.  Dewan will offer a range of services including engineering, master planning, architectural design, sustainability design and post contract services.

Reem Mall, developed by the National Real Estate Company (NREC) in partnership with United Projects for Aviation Services Company (UPAC), is a 2 million sq ft retail, leisure, dining and entertainment destination, located on Reem Island, the new master-developed residential and commercial zone adjacent to Abu Dhabi, which will eventually be home to more than 200,000 people. Dewan’s appointment marks another significant step forward for the US$ 1 billion project. 

Since its inception in 1984, Dewan has established itself as a major player on the regional architectural scene.  Dewan has participated in designing a range of retail, residential and mixed use projects in the UAE including Yas Viceroy Hotel, City Walk in Dubai as well as Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai.

Currently at concept design stage, the Reem Mall project is expected to start construction in 2015 and open in 2018.  Once completed, Reem Mall will bring a wide range of family-focused retail, leisure and entertainment offerings to Abu Dhabi including some 450 stores including 85 food and beverage outlets.
