  • Expansive new community complements Saadiyat Island’s growing attractiveness as a world-class destination
  • Designed in response to growing demand for sustainable and spacious living, lifestyle amenities and customisable design 
  • First phase launch includes 207 four-, five-, and six-bedroom homes available exclusively for UAE nationals 

Abu Dhabi, UAE – 24 October 2022: Aldar Properties (‘Aldar’) announced today the launch of Saadiyat Lagoons, a nature-inspired residential community surrounded by stunning mangroves and overlooking the Arabian Gulf. The new development is located on the east side of Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island, and available exclusively for UAE national buyers. 

The first phase of the integrated development will see 207 villas released on 3 November, with prices starting from AED 6.1 million. Properties are available in four-, five- and six-bedroom layouts, offering buyers a wide choice of villa living in a unique setting. The community has been designed with a series of residential clusters in three zones and each zone will feature homes with distinct architectural styles catering to the tastes of Aldar’s local customer base. 

Internally, all villas will have a cool or warm colour scheme and a choice of standard or premium finishes. Customers will also have the choice to further customise their homes with the option to add a private pod in their garden that can be used as a majlis or home office. 

The community will feature a range of exciting amenities including an eco-corniche, amphitheatre, dry deck water play area, skate park, paddle, basketball, and volleyball courts, climbing wall, playgrounds and ample green spaces and parks. Within the community, residents will also have access to schools and early learning centres, retail and F&B outlets, a health clinic, petrol stations, a multi-purpose event venue, barbeque and picnic areas, mosques and three Majalises. 

The development forms part of Aldar’s broader master plan for Saadiyat Island and will be located in close proximity to immersive cultural destination, Saadiyat Grove, as well as the idyllic Soul Beach at Mamsha Al Saadiyat. The community will be situated within the 6.2 million sqm land plot acquired by Aldar earlier in 2022. 

Commenting on the launch, Rashed Al Omaira, Chief Commercial Officer at Aldar Development, said: “Saadiyat Lagoons is located on one of the most desirable pieces of land in Abu Dhabi, which makes it an incredibly exciting proposition. Each aspect of the development has been carefully planned in response to the changing needs of our customers, including the amenities, sustainable design, and options for home customisation. Once completed, the community will boost Saadiyat Island’s position as a fully developed residential, cultural, and leisure destination and we expect to see strong demand amongst UAE nationals.”

With a full suite of cultural, recreational, and leisure amenities on Saadiyat Island and the adjacent Yas Island, customers will be able to enjoy all the islands have to offer, including luxury beach resorts, cultural destinations, and top educational institutes such as Cranleigh School and New York University. 

Reflecting the natural beauty of the surrounding mangroves, and as part of Aldar’s long-standing commitment to sustainability, Saadiyat Lagoons will feature a range of sustainable design and building measures. Solar panels will be installed across the community to power the water heaters, and efficient water features will reduce water usage by approximately 50%, among a range of other sustainability initiatives. The entire community is targeted to achieve an Estidama pearl rating, with many elements set to exceed two pearls. 

Construction of Saadiyat Lagoons is due to begin in Q2 2023, with handovers expected to commence in early Q2 2026.
