We are moving

9. June 2011

Austrian Embassy is moving their chancery to Sky Tower while the Austrian Embassy- commercial section will soon move to their new office space in Al Wahda Commercial Complex. The move is to keep up with the expansion plans of the embassy and the commercial section. The Austrian Trade commission crosses over the threshold

The Austrian Embassy in Abu Dhabi has signed a 10-year lease for their chancery in Sky Tower, part of Sorouh’s Shams Gate District on Al Reem Island.
“We are absolutely delighted with our new chancery,” said Dr. Julius Lauritsch, the Austrian Ambassador to the UAE. “Shams Abu Dhabi is a fantastic location for our new embassy, due to its proximity to central Abu Dhabi and the up-and-coming central business district. It was very clear to us that Shams Abu Dhabi will be the location of choice in the capital. Sky Tower itself has been completed to an excellent standard and offers a good amount of parking space for our staff and visitors.”
Abubaker Seddiq Al Khouri, Managing Director of Sorouh, commented, “Sun and Sky towers are landmark projects both for Sorouh and for the city, as they are also the first ‘Grade A’ buildings in Abu Dhabi’s new investment zone on Al Reem Island. It is a pleasure and honour for us to have signed such a prestigious tenant as the Austrian Embassy and we are also in discussions with a number of other high-profile potential tenants, including governmental departments as well as other diplomatic missions.”
Meanwhile the Austrian Embassy- Commercial section is also nursing plans to move to a new location soon. The proposed location is the Al Wahda Commercial complex, next to the Al Wahda Mall. Says Dr Wolfgang Penzias, the Austrian Trade Commissioner to the GCC, “We are delighted to move to the Al Wahda Commercial complex. It is a prime location as it is in the heart of the city. The location offers a good amount of parking space for our staff and visitors. Moreover, its proximity to the main Abu Dhabi bus stop and the Al Wahda Mall also gives it a definite advantage, especially to visitors commuting from Dubai.”
