Safety measures are being put in place by the Abu Dhabi Police for the demolition of Mina Plaza Towers next week.
The old, abandoned blocks will be brought down on Friday, November 27, to make way for a major redevelopment project.
Shops in the area will temporarily close from 7:00 pm on Thursday, November 26 until 4:00 pm the next day.
The redevelopment project in Mina Zayed area will include renovating existing souks, building new fresh food markets as well as dedicated facilities for dates, carpets, plants and wholesale trading.
