Marsa Zayed, which was named in memory of the Late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, is located in the city centre of Aqaba with a total area of 3.2 million square meters including 2km prime waterfront; a setting that enjoys remarkable visibility due to its strategic location and the advantageous gradual elevation from the waterfront - from zero to about 200 meters from sea level- which allows for building developments of different heights without blocking views of the waterfront for areas that are further behind. Marsa Zayed is a mega mixed-use waterfront project, including high-rise residential towers, retail, recreational, entertainment, business and financial districts, and several branded hotels. Several marinas will add to the current berthing capacity which will transform Aqaba into a premier yachting destination; in addition to a state-of-the-art cruise ship terminal, which will become one of Jordan’s touristic landmarks and a welcoming gateway to Aqaba. With an eye to transforming Aqaba into a bustling centre of commerce and tourism, Marsa Zayed is one of the most significant developments in the region, coupling epic proportions with admirable levels of responsible and ethical development principles that will see the environment retain its place of importance. Designed as a genuine, thriving city, Marsa Zayed will wonderful tourism opportunities. But it’s more than simply a destination or a glorious stopping point. It’s about ‘city-living’ on a human scale. With its majestic mountains behind and the richly teeming waters of the Gulf of Aqaba, Marsa Zayed is fused with the harmony of nature.
