United Arab Emirates, October 25, 2018

Aldar Properties on Wednesday said Meera, its master-planned community on Reem Island, is almost complete ahead of the start of customer handovers this quarter.

Also on Reem Island, subcontractors have now been appointed for all necessary works at The Bridges, Aldar’s six building development launched in April 2017, the developer said in a construction update report.

It also said show villas are now complete and open for viewing at Yas Acres, Aldar’s flagship golf and waterfront development on Yas Island.

Structural works on all 652 launched villas are almost complete and main utility networks are finished. Yas Acres will begin handover to customers in 2019, expanding the existing residential population on Yas Island following the handovers of Ansam and West Yas.

Aldar said construction is also progressing well at Yas Island’s two waterfront apartment communities with enabling works complete across the entire 13 building Water’s Edge development, and concrete, casting and vertical works underway across all five buildings within Mayan.

Mamsha Al Saadiyat, the 1.4 km mixed-use project at the Saadiyat Cultural District showcased at October’s Cityscape Global, is on track for handover next year, it added.

Work is also progressing well on Jawaher Saadiyat, the exclusive gated community on Saadiyat Island, overlooking the region’s first championship beachfront golf course, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club.

Interior finishes on the 83 four-to-six bedroom townhouses and villas are under way and the show villa is nearing completion.

Aldar also highlighted progress on the extension of Al Jimi Mall in Al Ain, which will add 45,000 sq m of gross leasable area and is on track for an imminent opening.
