Envisioned as the new public plaza that would welcome both daily activities and larger programmed events, Etihad Civic Square is a well-conceived design idea. It aims to serve as a transition space which connects city landmarks and the Corniche promenade.
Located in the heart of Abu Dhabi city, Etihad Square could become a major destination through thoughtful design, diverse programming, quality retail options and active management. This public space could also serve as an activity hub, welcoming all of Abu Dhabi natives, residents and visitors, as well as a catalyst, connecting the surrounding neighborhoods. The plaza provides valuable open space and a venue for the city to gather at national celebrations and create additional momentum to the transformation being experienced in the area.
