Abstract: We show that the Drinfel'd double associated to the standard quantum deformation slη(2,R) is isomorphic to the (2+1) -dimensional AdS algebra with the initial deformation parameter η related to the cosmological constant Λ=η2 . This gives rise to a generalisation of a non-commutative Minkowski spacetime that arises as a consequence of the quantum double symmetry of (2+1) gravity to non-vanishing cosmological constant. The properties of the AdS quantum double that generalises this symmetry to the case Λ0 are sketched, and it is shown that the new non-commutative AdS spacetime is a nonlinear Λ -deformation of the Minkowskian one.
