[2] [3] [4] PLANS ANNOUNCED FOR AL MARYAH CENTRAL IN ABU DHABI B OSTON-BASED Elkus Manfredi Architects has released plans and renderings for Al Maryah Central, a 3.1-million-sq.-ft. mixed-use development set for construction in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. Located next door to The Galleria on Al Maryah Island, Al Maryah Central is designed symmetrically, with tower bookends (each at 558 ft. tall) framing north and south retail galleries that meet in a central atrium. The concept is focused on connectivity, according to the company, offering an inside-outside environment emulating great urban shopping experiences such as New York's Fifth Avenue and London's Oxford Street. JULY 2016 DESIGNRETAILONLINE.COM GLOBALSHOP.ORG Glass façades will be integrated into the structure and signal entry points into the property, allowing natural light to filter in. "[Filtered light] is strategically used at project entries, transitional spaces and areas of congregation in order to reinforce a sense of cultural identity," says Howard Elkus, founding principal of Elkus Manfredi. Anchor retail stores include a Bloomingdale's with a rooftop garden restaurant, and the first Macy's to open in the region. Construction has already begun, with completion anticipated for 2018. - Michelle M. Havich Rendering courtesy of GULF RELATED http://www.DESIGNRETAILONLINE.COM http://www.GLOBALSHOP.ORG
