Abu Dhabi Sports Hub
As part of the urban development of Abu Dhabi a new stadium complex was planned within the city quarter “Khalifa City” in the north of the main business centre of Abu Dhabi. Besides a football stadium with a capacity of more than 60,000, the so-called “Khalifa Sports Hub” includes additional multi-functional arenas, a swimming hall and a velodrome. Beyond, a substantial peripheral commercial use with hotels, retail and offices are planned.
Together with AS+P and abold, PROPROJEKT was commissioned with the critical analysis of the existing plans for the Khalifa Sports Hub. In order to evaluate the planned infrastructure of the Khalifa Sports Hub and to be able to give further advice for the planning ahead, a broad benchmark analysis of existing sports hubs was completed as a first step. Based on the “criteria of excellence” derived through the benchmark analysis as well as technical requirements of international sports federations, new recommendations for the planning were developed. Additionally, a first cost estimation for the planned investments was completed.
