ABU DHABI 13 April, 2017: Aldar Properties said that it is maintaining steady progress across its seven main projects under development, as Yas Island’s Ansam and Al Raha Beach’s Al Hadeel enter into the final stages ahead of handovers in September.
Ansam, which is located on the west side of Yas Island, is nearing completion with facade glazing and internal fit-out ahead of handover this year. The main contractor package, worth Dh500 million, for Mayan, a luxury golf and waterfront development on the island, has been awarded for the construction of 5 eleven-storey buildings comprising 512 units.
West Yas, Aldar’s first villa community on Yas Island, and Yas Acres, the flagship golf and waterfront villa and townhouse development, continue to make steady headway. At West Yas, the show-villas will be open to the public once landscaping around the villas is complete. Aldar is currently evaluating tender submissions for Yas Acres’ main contractor, which will be awarded in Q2. In total, Aldar currently has over 3,500 units under development on Yas Island.
Construction also continues on Reem Island, as Meera, Aldar’s first mid-market development, makes steady headway with basement blockwork and casting for the second floor slabs now complete. Testing for the closed canal is now largely complete along with landscaping work as it prepares for flooding later this month, said Wam.
Another addition to Al Raha Beach, Al Hadeel development, is in the final stages ahead of its scheduled handover this year, with plaster boarding almost complete and internal fit-out ongoing.
