The project is masterplanned by Aecom, while HOK are on board as sub-consultants  to create a city “designed and tailored to benefit primarily residential and commercial users”, Albilad said.

The project, located in Seef District, has two main water bodies integrated within the development – a marina and beach.

It also includes residential units and a commercial district which will provide offices for businesses that embrace new ways of working and understand how a good working environment leads to increased productivity.

The three precincts of Water Garden City are further divided, creating a total of nine neighbourhoods, each with their own distinct features, the company added.

The first phase, which will include the Marina Promenade dining strip, comprising family orientated restaurants, is nearing construction completion, with tenants moving in later in the year.
