Construction work has started on the 1.1ha Snow Park within Abu Dhabi’s Reem Mall, a $1.2bn (AED4.4bn) project at Reem Island’s Najmat District that will comprise 450 shops when it opens in late-2020.

UK practice Pascall + Watson, which has delivered architectural design services for Snow Park, said site works have started for the “unusual leisure destination”.

The design firm said in a project update on its website that Snow Park’s design is themed on “a snow-covered enchanted forest, and delivers experiences such as sledging, zorbing, and zip-lining across several distinct zones”.

Reem Mall revealed earlier this year that a 2,140m2 e-commerce logistics hub will be developed within the retail facility to “make it the world’s first fully digitally enabled smart shopping centre”.
