Abdali Economic Zone

Driving economic development in Kuwait

90km from Kuwait metro area
5.02sq km area
20.46sq km development district
5km from Iraqi Border

Pace were commissioned to develop the master plan for Abdali Kuwait Economic Zone (KEZ), a new development located 90km from Kuwait Metropolitan area and international airport. The project aims to establish Kuwait’s first smart sustainable city development on a site located inland and close to the Iraq border.

Al Abdali is optimally positioned to provide a gateway function for export-focused trade between Kuwait, Iraq and the wider GCC with one of its major assets being access to planned GC Rail line and major highways. The site benefits from proximity to oil fields, making it a potentially attractive proposition for oilfield services companies. The development will provide a strategic platform for businesses and investors in petro-chemicals, manufacturing, waste management, logistics and retail to expand into Iraq and Iran through its exceptional connectivity to local markets, labour pools and ports.

Our scope of work includes environmental studies, topographical survey, geotechnical investigation, masterplan, transportation & infrastructure strategy, infrastructure design, roads design, traffic impact study and tendering services.
