Abu Dhabi-based property developer Aldar has appointed RW Armstrong & Associates as 'architect of record' for its Coconut Island project in Abu Dhabi.

The island resort project, which will be a gated residential development, is located off the west coast of Abu Dhabi and will be a joint venture with National Corporation for Tourism and Hotels (NCT&H).

The contract will see RW Armstrong & Associates prepare detailed architectural and engineering designs as well as supervise construction, ensuring design objectives are met. The project is expected to be completed in early 2011.

"Both ALDAR and NCT&H are equally committed to upholding high quality standards in all aspects of their work; to deliver on the spectacular promise that Coconut Island holds," said Rami Hreiki, senior development manager of Aldar Properties.

"We welcome RW Armstrong on board the project and look forward to working with them in raising the bar for Abu Dhabi's real estate developments."

Coconut Island will have Abu Dhabi's first Ritz Carlton resort, and a number of four- and three-bedroom apartment buildings.
