This 20,621 m2 mixed-use development houses a commercial center on the basement, ground and mezzanine levels and apartments on the upper floors. The 90 apartment units occupy 16 residential floors and include two and three bedroom apartments of 190 to 220 m2, respectively.

The design philosophy was to imbue the project with a well-balanced mix of materials and details in order to achieve a calm and subdued character. During the design phase, a marketing firm was introduced and changed the nature of the property by proposing to convert the entire commercial functions of the lower floors into a unique shopping center.

The She-Zone Center became the first project to cater solely to female consumers in Abu Dhabi.
