Khalifa City, situated on the mainland to the east of Abu Dhabi Island, is a residential area featuring a range of large and mid-scale villas, townhouses, villa compounds, as well as mixed-use facilities such as schools, medical facilities, retail spaces, and leisure amenities.

ICON provided design and construction landscape sub-consultancy services, specifically focusing on softscape, irrigation, and furniture layout for the streetscapes of Khalifa City. The streetscapes encompass a total length of 69km, including boulevards, avenues, and roundabouts.

The overall design and master layout of Khalifa City’s streetscapes were created by De Leuw Cather International (DCI) on behalf of the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT).
