Aldar Properties delivers updates on its developments across Abu Dhabi

UAE-based real estate developer Aldar Properties (Aldar) has delivered the latest update on its projects under construction across Abu Dhabi, including its Yas Acres, Water’s Edge, Lea, Reflection, Saadiyat Reserve, Alreeman, Alghadeer, and Alreeman II developments.

Considerable progress is being made across Aldar’s entire development portfolio on Yas Island. Yas Acres, the flagship waterfront and golf course villa and townhouse development, is nearing full completion, with handovers well underway. Upcoming activities will focus on snagging works and continued handovers to customers.

Meanwhile, the Water’s Edge development near Yas Marina has maintained steady progress to reach over 60% completion. External landscaping and internal road works have commenced throughout the 13 mid-rise residential blocks.

Excavation and deep infrastructure utilities works have also continued at pace for the 238 land plots at Aldar’s latest waterfront development, Lea.

Reflection on Reem Island, Aldar’s 374-apartment development, has crossed the 25% completion milestone, with block work and slab-casting advancing rapidly in both towers. The two towers at Reflection will provide residents with views of the sea, mangroves, nearby parks, or Abu Dhabi’s skyline.

The 422,370m2 community at Saadiyat Reserve has witnessed major milestones including awarding the contract and the mobilisation of the contractor on site in late June. Construction activities are set to commence imminently, focusing on infrastructure progress including sewerage, water, power, irrigation, and gas works, as well as road works and street lighting.

The Alreeman community in Al Shamkha nears the 50% completion milestone. The mixed-use development has seen shallow utilities such as gas networks and irrigation in Q3 2020, with upcoming work focusing on substation foundations and the construction of irrigation-pumping stations.

Aldar’s Alreeman II community, dedicated to UAE Nationals, has seen preparation works for sewer network excavation and dewatering drilling activity commence, with sewerage excavations and installations set to take place in the coming months.

The spacious Alghadeer development has reached the final quarter of development, with all waterproofing works complete. Majority of the internal painting works have also been completed for all residences. The finishing works will continue through the next quarter, with significant progress being made on landscaping throughout the community.
