Yas Island is 25 square kilometres, approximately 7.5 km long by 6.5 km wide, and is located on the North East side of Abu Dhabi’s mainland. It is strategically located between the city of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The Island will feature a range of world-class hotels, theme parks, golf courses, mega malls and residential developments, as well as the Yas Marina Circuit, new home of the Formula One Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the world’s first Ferrari theme park, is currently under construction. Tony Gee was appointed by Aldar-Besix for the temporary access works design to enable construction of the central funnel structure, and by Taiyo Middle East LLC for construction engineering of the Welcome Pavillion.
The park is destined to become the world’s largest indoor attraction of its kind when it opens in 2010.
