Buildings will be strategically oriented to maximise shade and reduce heat, with additional cooling from water features, and significant emphasis will be on landscaping and planting selection. It will also have a direct access to Yas Island’s 10km canal front promenade.

Through the integration of nature within the infrastructure and a master plan that has been carefully designed to maximise walkability, Gardenia Bay aims to improve overall well-being and promote a healthy lifestyle along almost one kilometre of canal frontage.

Community activations and amenities will be seen across the development through ‘The Bay View’, a social clubhouse with co-working spaces and outdoor working pods, community farming, zen gardens, barbecue areas, kids’ play areas, an amphitheatre, and an urban beach club. Secondary amenities include a gymnasium, cycling and jogging tracks, a café, and a multi-purpose area.

A mosque will also be built to accommodate over 2,000 worshippers.

Gardenia Bay’s design will adopt a modular construction approach to increase efficiency and focus on high quality with minimum impact on the environment.

Additional sustainable practices will be integrated, including the utilisation of recycled materials. Buildings will target a Pearl 3 Estidama rating and incorporate monitoring meters to reduce energy, water, and waste consumption. The open spaces will be complemented by smart irrigation and composting systems, while the gardens will have edible produce and encourage the growth of native and adaptive plant species.
