Work starts on 'multi-billion dollar' Warner Bros theme park development in Abu Dhabi
POSTED 16 Jul 2015 . BY Tom Anstey
The project has been touted as a 'multi-billion dollar' deal
Plans are progressing for a new Warner Bros theme park in Abu Dhabi, as the number of attractions in the Middle East continues to climb.

The project, which in 2007 was touted as a ‘multi-billion dollar’ deal, covers the creation of a 19-ride theme park and a hotel, along with multiplex cinemas, jointly owned by Warner Bros, Abu Dhabi-based property developer Aldar Properties PJSC and the Abu Dhabi Media Company. The partnership between the three companies also includes a joint venture fund to finance films and publish video games, and to develop related ventures such as production facilities, digital content distribution and retail opportunities across the Gulf.

“With our partners at Miral Asset Management, we have started initial development of the area on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island and expect the project to be completed in 2018,” said a Warner Bros spokesperson, confirming the development.

According to signage around the construction site in Abu Dhabi, AECOM’s Middle East division are operating as consultants, while Thinkwell are acting as theme consultants. Louis Berger are project management consultants and Farah Leisure Parks Management are owner representatives and master developers for the project. Finally, NSCC International are operating as general contractors.
