Capital Centre - Abu Dhabi

0 developer 0 project



Capital Centre, a significant mixed-use development situated near Al Gurm on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi, is in close proximity to Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street. With most of its properties being commercial in nature, particularly hotels, Capital Centre houses the prominent Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) and Capital Gate Tower. The region spans across an area of 8 million square feet and accommodates the well-known Capital Gate building, popularly known as the Leaning Tower of Abu Dhabi.




Previously, the Capital Centre was occupied by the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, and the remaining area consisted of parking bays. Nowadays, it has been transformed into a mixed-use development that includes various hotels, ministries and other commercial properties. This community is renowned among both business travellers and holidaymakers alike. One such popular hotel in this area is Centro Capital Centre which is conveniently located adjacent to Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. Despite being away from the city center, this community isn't crowded as well.
