Kizad’s master plan ensures a dynamic and comprehensive design for socio-economic sustainability thereby ensuring successful longevity.
In keeping with Abu Dhabi’s 2030 vision to harness industrial diversification Kizad is located on a 417 sq km greenfield site selected as a prominent gateway to capture regional industrial development. Kizad benefits from adjacency to the state-of-the- art Khalifa Port, being located almost equidistant between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, as well as from extended frontage along the E11 Highway connecting the two cities. An additional arterial roadway is planned, linking Kizad to Al Ain, the UAE’s largest inland city.
DIVIDED INTO DISTINCT AREAS
Area A: Industrial and Commercial Activities
Kizad consists of Areas A and B, on either side of the E11 Highway. These areas are dedicated for industrial and commercial activities supported with ancillary uses such as community services and retail. Because of its vast expanse, Kizad Area A is purposely divided into specific area plans to afford a myriad of industrial activities ranging from aluminum production, trading and logistics operations to healthcare equipment manufacturing.
Area B: Support Services and Amenities
Area B, although dedicated for industrial and commercial uses, further supports the industrial developments by providing support services and amenities such as workforce residential communities and retail uses. Kizad is dynamic and comprehensively designed for socio-economic sustainability thereby ensuring successful longevity.
Kizad will provide the necessary infrastructure and services required to support industrial and business activities within a number of distinct areas structured to meet the needs of different industry types. The layout of the Industrial Zone ensures land use compatibility by taking into account transportation impact and a range of other conditions to ensure the environment in each area is appropriate for the businesses to be located within it.
High Impact Industry Areas
This area will be tailored to the needs of industries, such as smelters, heavy machinery manufacturers, chemical and petrochemical plants, glass and pulp and paper mills.
Light Industry Areas
Light impact manufacturers such as food packagers and processors and pharmaceutical manufacturers will be located between residential areas and high-impact industry areas.
These two areas will be further subdivided into the industry clusters previously mentioned.
The main focus within these areas is on technological sectors, encompassing alternative energy, incubator and research facilities and electrical components.
Helping to create sustainable communities for residents, staff and visitors, the commercial areas will boast showrooms, shopping, leisure and recreation facilities, service centres, a hotel and office park.
Kizad will offer workers residential communities offering comfortable accommodation in convenient locations as near to the workplace as UAE Regulations allow. Recreational and entertainment facilities, mosques, shops, medical and emergency services are planned.
