Abu Dhabi-listed developer Aldar Properties has issued a progress update on its entire portfolio of projects, all of which, according to the builder, are progressing in line with expectation.

On Yas Island, Aldar said that there is strong momentum in the construction of Ansam, an Andalusian-style apartment development. Internal block work is now complete across all buildings, with external block work progressing steadily. Interior work is progressing well, and nearing completion in certain areas, with MEP installations also ongoing.

At West Yas, infrastructure work is nearing completion, with villa construction underway. Amenities within the community such as the mosque, retail centre, and recreation club are due for completion by the end of 2016. West Yas Academy, operated by Aldar Academies, has been operational since August.

Following the launch of Yas Acres, tendering for the early works package is underway, with award and mobilisation expected to take place by the end of the year. The main contractor is expected to be appointed by mid-2017.

Also situated on Yas Island, enabling works for Mayan, Aldar’s luxury golf and waterfront apartment development, will soon commence.

At Al Hadeel, the residential community on Al Raha Beach, headway made in construction is evident, with the full 10-storey building structure now clearly visible.

Following the award of main contract packages over the course of the summer, construction teams are now mobilised on both Nareel Island and at Al Merief.

Planning for community amenities and facilities on Nareel Island, including a mosque and marina, has commenced, with all work expected to be completed during Q4 2017. Meanwhile at Al Merief, all project plans have been submitted for approval for the infrastructure construction that will support the development, all of which is expected to be completed in Q4 2017.

Within Aldar’s Shams Abu Dhabi development on Reem Island, Shams Meera is showing strong signs of progress. All enabling works have been completed and handed over, and construction teams for the main contract package have commenced activity.

Elsewhere within Shams, work on the closed canal is advancing on schedule, with work on the streetscape nearing its conclusion.

In Al Ain, work continues on the expansion of Al Jimi Mall, which attracts eight million visitors annually, is expected to be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2018.
