Abu Dhabi-based place-maker and developer IMKAN says that the simultaneous construction of its seven Pixel Towers on Reem Island, with three towers launched to date, represents its promise of offering only the very best dwelling environments for its customers.
The completion of the concrete substructure for the seven-storey buildings that are gradually turning into a landmark on the Reem Island skyline, is an essential milestone for the development, which is taking shape at IMKAN’s Makers District - the UAE’s most modern mixed-use hub that is anticipated to show a magnet for creatives, entrepreneurs, innovators, and those with a robust feel of individualism.
IMKAN highlights its dedication to placemaking and community engagement as the driving force at the back of its decision to construct all seven Pixel Towers at once, while passed over in a staged phase. The organization says that rather than making the first set of homebuyers live in a constructing site, they are instead devoted to finishing the community and its spaces in between to motivate vibrancy as soon as proprietors take possession of their new homes. It adds that due to the organization attaining key development milestones at an unprecedented rate, it has witnessed an increase in sales and is consequently gearing up to launch a fourth tower on the market.
“Pixel has been designed as a first-choice destination amid a vibrant neighborhood – home to a community of entrepreneurs and those with a millennial mindset. At IMKAN, we are dedicated to making sure that as soon as our residents’ keys turn in their doors, they have the whole thing they want - both in their houses and in their outdoor community. We are delighted with the development being made with Pixel and with this vital development milestone,” stated Walid El Hindi, CEO of IMKAN Properties.
Once complete, the Pixel improvement will be home to 525 modern flats ranging from studios to three-bedroom options. Alongside the residential offering will be 94 boutique workplace units and 14 retail outlets, with the whole seven-tower community designed in partnership with the award-winning Dutch architectural company MVRDV. A central focal factor of the development is its pedestrianized plaza, which has been designed by Copenhagen-based architectural company BIG. The scheme encompasses the idea of ‘walkability’ and the serendipitous results that are frequently the outcome of chance encounters.
Located on a top stretch of Reem Island’s picturesque waterfront, Makers District is a short distance from some of the city’s much-loved creative landmarks, such as the Louvre Abu Dhabi and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, the latter of which is decided to open in 2022
Pixel is the first phase of Makers District, which is due for completion in 2021. The masterplan also consists of a boutique hotel, further residential choices (totaling 3,700 units throughout the development), F&B outlets and co-working spaces within the thriving innovative community. IMKAN’s special approach, prioritizing negative spaces (such as communal parks, paths and parking) before positive areas allows for an ergonomic community-based design which interlinks the various elements of their projects. Through in-depth research, IMKAN puts human experience - both for visitors and residents - at the core of all their developments.
