AThis contemporary revival of a historic district within the heart of the city – the old Central Market, which was the business and trading hub – is now a fully integrated, mixed-use development with a mall, a modern souk, offices and residences.
The Souk at World Trade Centre Abu Dhabi
On the site of the original commercial district and spanning three levels, this contemporary interpretation of a traditional Abu Dhabi market is connected to the WTC Mall by Khalifa Bridge. The souk has everything from traditional artifacts, henna and spices to jewellery, Arabic perfumes, clothing and accessories.
With a fusion of classic Arabian architecture and modern design, WTC Souk also has public squares, a central atrium with a retractable roof and rooftop gardens.
The Mall at World Trade Centre Abu Dhabi
Featuring the region’s first House of Fraser and several Abu Dhabi firsts – including Karen Millen, BCBG and Missoni, the mall has a wide selection of casual dining options – including Shakespeare & Co and the Asian-themed, American casual restaurant P.F. Chang, an eight-screen cinema and more than 3,000m2 of terraces and landscaped rooftop gardens.
Its two central atriums sit under a fully retractable roof.
There’s ample underground parking as a valet parking service.
