The development spans a built-up area of 156,800 square metres and consists of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and eight exclusive water villas.

The waterfront Carina Views towers will be designed for middle-income professionals.

Khaleel I Al Abdullah, Chief Executive Officer at NREC, said: "Even with the economic crisis, accommodation requirements still need to be addressed in Abu Dhabi. We decided to enter the market and target mid-income professionals to fill a gap that was very much there. We are confident in Abu Dhabi and the UAE and Carina Views is the first of many UAE projects we are embarking on."
