Work for the new leisure destination for residents at the Abu Dhabi’s historic port area at Mina Zayed has already begun.

Abu Dhabi Ports’s officials witnessed the unloading of the first container to be used for the project.

According to the report of Emirates News Agency (WAM), the dynamic new waterfront space named “Marsa Mona” is scheduled to be completed and opened go the public in the first quarter of 2020.

Once operational, it will offer a unique sight for residents as luxury cruise liners are expected to dock there.

Likewise, tourists on board the ships will also experience a diverse mix of food trucks and unique retail concepts, family entertainment, playgrounds and open seating areas.

Located next to the Abu Dhabi Cruise Terminal, the retail units there will be constructed from recycled shipping containers.

Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, group CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, said the introduction of such a project will widen the exposure of Abu Dhabi’s cruise culture to the global market.

The official added that there’s also space in the Marsa Mina for entrepreneurs and start-ups.

“Businesses who are keen on establishing themselves in the port can expect a streamlined registration process,” he said.

The new waterfront area will also showcase artworks created from reused maritime equipment by young UAE creative artists. This will give Marsa Mina “the feeling of a maritime museum”.
