Jumeirah Etihad Towers, developed under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan’s Department of Special Projects will feature several towers including a hotel, an office building and serviced residences as well as commercial and retail space. The project management for this prestigious new development is handled by Hill International, the assigned architects for the project are DBI and ACC is the main contractor.

Scheduled to open late 2010, the 60 storey luxury hotel tower will comprise 400 beautifully appointed guest rooms & suites as well as 200 fully serviced apartments varying from studios to spacious one, two and three bedroom apartments. In addition, the development will include a high end shopping boulevard, extensive conference & banqueting facilities, a spa and sport & recreation facilities, which will be open to the hotel guests, residents and office tower tenants. Located on Abu Dhabi’s world renowned Corniche, the hotel will have a private sandy beach for guests to enjoy.

His Highness Sheikh Suroor bin Mohammed Al Nahyan commented: ‘We are pleased to open the welcome gate of Abu Dhabi to the Jumeirah Group and together we accept the challenge of adding value to the Abu Dhabi Tourism market. We are certain that Jumeirah will be as successful here as they have been in Dubai and elsewhere.’
