Abu Dhabi Plaza, Astana 8.4ha mixed use development
HKR has completed the pre concept stage of a 246,000 m2 of mixed use development in the vibrant and fast developing city of Astana in Kazakhstan.
After a successful presentation to our client, HKR was appointed to undertake all the design stages – from concept to completion, including site supervision.
The scheme includes residential buildings, which range from five to 14 stories, a retail centre with two residential towers, commercial spaces and parking.
We designed the masterplan with a central pedestrian boulevard connects the retail centre with the commercial and residential units, creating an environment that reflects a European approach to living, working and socialising.
The residential buildings are designed with family friendly courtyards that bring residents together, creating a sense of community. The restaurants and commercial spaces are located on the first floors of the residential buildings. Vehicle access to car parks and emergency access are routed from surrounding roads. The project is the first step in creating a European style development in Astana.
