JLL was appointed as an advisor for the development of the latest cultural attraction in Abu Dhabi, Qasr Al Watan, a unique cultural landmark housed within the presidential compound.

Qasr Al Watan offer visitors the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the UAE’s governing tradi-tions and values, as well as the role that the UAE continues to play in shaping the future of the nation. The new landmark will also attract visitors to explore the well-preserved intellectual legacy of the Arab world, and its contributions to various fields of knowledge.

“JLL is committed to supporting the UAE’s vision and strategic plan in promoting cross-cultural dialogue and intellectual empowerment across the Middle East. Abu Dhabi is a vibrant, fast developing city of the future – one that is set to significantly enhance the UAE’s position as a global tourist destination.
