A concept masterplan

The ambitious concept for Yas Island was to transform 25,000m2 of desert into one of the world’s largest and most prestigious mixed-use destinations.

The entire project is surrounded by navigable waterways and features a beachfront shoreline of around 32km.

The concept included a major shopping experience, a motor racing circuit and the unique Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.

A key component of the masterplan was Yas Mall. Incorporating over 500 shops, four department stores, concept stores and boulevards, it was destined to be a catwalk for international brands.

There are also several marinas, resort and lagoon hotels, a water park and the potential for a major equestrian centre.

The Yas Marina Circuit now hosts the F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The island features high-end apartments and villas and a hotel cluster close the race circuit itself. It is also the setting for Yas Links, one of the best known golf courses in the Middle East.
