Katara in collaboration with Aspire Katara Investment (AKI) announced the partnership with EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider. Katara will use the unique ICube mobile solution at the world’s leading property market event at MIPIM in Cannes, 12-15 March 2013 to reveal the next phase of Katara.
AKI and Katara will be using the 3D interactive EON ICube mobile system to offer event visitors an unprecedented way of virtually walking through and experience the existing Katara site and to reveal new aspects of the development. The complete development site will include both commercial and private properties, and a large area of cultural facilities such as theatres, concert halls, and exhibition galleries.
This marks the first time that the unique EON ICube mobile system is used for a large property market event. The system will offer visitors the ability to virtually visit the area, interactively in a 3D platform, and walk through existing and new developments including both exteriors and interiors. This offers a unique way of experiencing property development projects months and years before completion, enabling crucial planning and investment decisions to be made in a more informed way.
In 2008, Katara opened phase one of the development in 2008, which consists of an Opera House, Drama Theatre, open air Amphitheatre, several Art Galleries, restaurants and cafes. The next phases will include a commercial complex, residential villas, hotels, and several other retail and hospitality facilities. The development is expected to be fully operational and complete by 2018.
MIPIM, the world’s property market, brings together the most influential players from all international property sectors – office, residential, retail, healthcare, sport, logistics and industrial – offering unrivalled access to the greatest number of development projects and sources of capital worldwide.
