Modon Properties has announced the appointment of Arabtec Holding subsidiary Arabtec Construction as the main contractor for its Show Village project in Khalifa City.

Making the announcement during the ground-breaking ceremony of the project, the master developer revealed that the Show Village will feature a collection of nine show villas and is expected to be completed in Q4 2018. 

Part of what will be Abu Dhabi’s largest housing development, Riyadh City, the project features villa designs developed based on the findings of a survey that Modon Properties conducted earlier this year.

According to the master developer, the survey was designed “to identify the needs and aspirations of Emiratis when building their dream homes”.

Abdulla Al Sahi, chief executive officer of Modon Properties, commented: “When we embarked on developing the masterplan for Riyadh City, we had two objectives. The first is to give Emiratis a hassle-free process to tailor-make their dream homes, and the second is to build […] properties of the highest standards possible.

“Breaking ground on the Show Village is a significant milestone for Modon Properties and the Riyadh City project. Customers visiting the Show Village will be able to see and experience the quality they can expect from us, before they sign their contracts.”

Meanwhile, Arabtec Holding group chief executive officer, Hamish Tyrwhitt, added: “Riyadh City represents an innovative offering to Emiratis and we look forward to playing a key role in showcasing that in the coming months.

Launched in November 2017 by the Abu Dhabi government, Riyadh City will reportedly accommodate 200,000 UAE citizens once completed, in addition to increasing available residential plots in the emirate by 45%.
