- PRESS RELEASE
Sowwah Square, the heart of Abu Dhabi's new Central Business District (CBD) on Al Maryah Island (formerly Sowwah Island) last night hosted Iftar for 300 Abu Dhabi's taxi drivers as part of their Spirit of Ramadan campaign.
The event provided a great opportunity to help familiarize the Capitals' taxi drivers with the vast infrastructure surrounding Abu Dhabi's new business hub.
Located at the midpoint between Abu Dhabi's existing downtown district, and new growth areas, opposite Abu Dhabi Mall, Sowwah Square is now open and home to an ever growing business community working on Al Maryah Island.
After the event, Ali Eid AlMheiri, Executive Director of MREI said "Al Sila [Tower 1], on Sowwah Square, is 82% leased and already home to a dynamic mix of blue-chip global companies including Deloitte, Clifford Chance, Al Tamimi & Company, Latham & Watkins, Baker Botts, Norton Rose, Mubadala GE Capital and the Regulation and Supervision Bureau. The current working population of the CBD is over 800 however this will quickly grow to over 2000 as new companies continue to move into Sowwah Square. With the rapid on-island population growth we want to ensure that a high-standard of services and amenities, including public transport are easily accessible for our tenants. We hope that this event will provide greater clarity of access points, new roads and bridges, to ensure, our tenants, their clients and guests are being serviced well by those who operate Abu Dhabi's most valued public transport service."
Modeled on the world's leading mixed-use CBDs, Sowwah Square is comprised of four architecturally distinguished Grade 'A', 30-36 storey commercial towers that together provide 180,000 sqm of column-free, flexible and highly efficient office space. These towers encircle the new headquarters of the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX), and sit above the 33,000 sqm premium retail and dining precinct, 'The Galleria at Sowwah Square', which connects the square with the ultra-luxury business hotel Rosewood Abu Dhabi at the waterside and mezzanine levels.
