Now known as Etihad Plaza the Abraj development is located minutes from the Abu Dhabi Airport, to the south of the freeway from Dubai to Abu Dhabi with connections into the Khalifa Residential District. It is now fully occupied by Etihad staff and ancillary services. It consists of 900 highly attractive mid-market residential and mixed-use complexes. It offers an exceptional quality of life, through outstanding design, use of simple and robust materials and optimum ESD principles.

There is a residential complex of ten 4 to 6 storey residential towers to the north and a series of residential high-rise towers to the south, with ancillary retail and leisure facilities to complement the development. It is intended to provide an interesting human and urban scale using different heights and densities across the site to allow maximum views to the sea, creating a benchmark through contemporary design and living experiences.
