Ferrari World to open next year
Development firm Aldar Properties has announced the completion of the external structure of Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi.
Located on Yas Island, Aldar’s new retail, leisure and entertainment destination and host venue for the inaugural Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Ferrari World is set to be the world’s largest indoor theme park and the first ever Ferrari theme park in the world when it opens in 2010.
The sleek red roof, directly inspired by the classic double curve side profile of the Ferrari GT body, covers a surface area of 200,000sq.m and features the largest Scuderia Ferrari ‘prancing horse’ emblem in the world, measuring 66m in diameter.
A joint venture management construction company owned by Aldar and Besix, the largest Belgian construction group, is responsible for the management of the project, while UK firm Benoy is the architect and lead consultant.
Once open, Ferrari World will be operated by Farah Leisure Park Management, a joint venture between Aldar and ProFun Management Group.
