Ansam and Al Hadeel move closer towards completion
Aldar Properties PJSC ('Aldar'), Abu Dhabi's leading listed property development, investment and management company, provides an update across its development portfolio. Steady progress is being made across all projects, with Yas Island's Ansam and Al Raha Beach's Al Hadeel moving closer towards completion and handover in 2017.
The sold out Al Hadeel which sits on the seafront of Al Raha Beach, complements Al Bandar's suite of existing luxury residences. Featuring 233 units, the façade glazing is entering its final stages with internal fixtures and fit-out progressing accordingly.
Ansam, an Andalusian-style apartment development on the West side of Yas Island, is also close to completing façade glazing, with MEP installations progressing well. The community offers premier living and leisure facilities and its first phase consists of 547 units overlooking the Yas Links golf course and the Yas Island waterfront.
Elsewhere on Yas Island, construction activity continues. At West Yas, two of the mock-up villas are now complete, and will be opened to the public in the coming weeks, with all villas at various stages of completion. Early works are ongoing at Mayan, Aldar's luxury golf and waterfront apartment development, with the main contract package expected to be awarded by the second quarter this year.
