ABU DHABI 17 July 2017: Aldar Properties is on track to hand over its Ansam project on Yas Island during the fourth quarter of 2017, while making strong progress across a number of other developments in key destinations.
Situated on the west side of Yas Island, construction of the Andalusian-style apartment development, Ansam, is entering its final stages. Building facade works are complete and community roadworks and landscaping will follow this quarter. The residences are on track for a phased handover to conclude by year-end, said Wam.
The infrastructure and non-residential works are now substantially complete at West Yas, Aldar’s first villa community on the island, with landscaping now in progress. In addition to the opening of show-villas, the West Yas school, a mosque, and retail space have been handed over and the majority of villas are structurally complete.
In Al Raha Beach, the Al Hadeel development, which includes apartments, townhouses and duplexes, is entering its final stages of completion. Elevator works have been concluded, while the development’s internal fit-out, facade, and swimming pools are close to completion.
Aldar’s first mid-market focused development, Meera, situated on Reem Island, continues to make headway, with casting having progressed up to the 20th floor. This follows Aldar’s recent announcement that it has finished the 2.4 km closed canal and street-scaping, while coastal-scape work on Reem Central Park nears completion.
Early works at Mayan, Aldar’s luxury golf and waterfront apartment development set alongside the Yas Links Golf Club and the exclusive Yas Beach on Yas Island, are now complete, and the main contractor, Ghantoot Group, has commenced construction. At Yas Acres, the main contractor has mobilised on site to commence construction on the infrastructure, as well as the villas and townhouses, golf course and clubhouse, mosque, retail and community clubs.
Located on the coast adjacent to Al Bateen, near the top western corner of Abu Dhabi island, and targeting UAE Nationals, Nareel Island is on track for completion in Q4. Similarly, Al Merief in Khalifa City is moving steadily towards its expected handover in Q1 2018, with deep services having commenced, and earthworks substantially completed.
Finally, in Al Ain, Al Jimi Mall expansion work continues to make headway, with ceiling works in the food court and main atrium now nearing completion. Progress has been made on the eastern facade and southern car park landscaping. Refurbishment of the public areas is underway and work continues to progress well in the West Extension and the North side retail park. Due for completion during 2018, the expansion will add another 33,000 sq.m. of retail, leisure and F&B spaces, bringing total gross leasable area to 76,000 sq.m.
