Next Great Cultural Destination

The Destination Consulting team has been appointed as the lead market and financial advisers for two major new museum developments in the Middle East - Louvre Abu Dhabi (designed by Jean Nouvel) and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi (by Frank Gehry). This appointment follows nine months of work on the business plan for Norman Foster's landmark Zayed National Museum, also in Abu Dhabi.

All three museums will open over the next five years on Saadiyat Island, a 26,000ha development project just offshore from the Emirate, which will become a world class cultural and tourism destination including hotels, retail malls, golf courses, a marina and a resident population of 145,000.

Saadiyat Island is being developed by the state-owned Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC).
