The Investment Authority site lies directly opposite a series of broad gardens and is very prominent in its visibility. As such the project was to be a significant contributor to the urban design of the city, and the building's proportions and its relationship to the street were important criteria. The design for the new headquarters for the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority was prepared in 1978 in response to an International Invited Design Competition. The site for this project was on the Abu Dhabi "Corniche" albeit at that time in its infancy. The Corniche today is a splendid 10 km Avenue of high quality development and lush tropical gardens with lovely promenades along the sea front.
