Saadiyat Lagoons

Lead Consultant:

Saadiyat Lagoons is one of the five districts that make up Saadiyat Island, the others being the Promenade, Marina, the Cultural District, and Saadiyat Beach.

The Saadiyat Lagoons district is envisaged as a premier mixed-use national housing scheme at the gateway to the Saadiyat Island coastal mangroves. Residents, visitors, and workers are provided with high-quality physical infrastructure and access to community facilities. The Lagoon’s coastal identity reinforces the community’s connection to the natural landscape and will celebrate the waterfront mangroves through public waterfront parks and view corridors.

The high-quality public realm serves to encourage pedestrian and cycle movement throughout the district and provide safe and convenient linkages to community facilities, neighborhood centers, and parklands.

After this high level categorization the spaces are then divided into two main typologies as per the Abu Dhabi Public Realm Design Manual (PRDM V2):  Streetscapes and parks.

The public realm of Saadiyat Lagoons is composed of a range of spaces of different typologies and sizes that are well connected. The streets network and arrangement of open space as shown in the adjacent Public Realm Location Plan ensures a permeable and walkable public realm.

Estimated Public Open Space - 915,104m2

Estimated Length of Streetscape - 61.4km
