Abu Dhabi - UAE, October 24, 2018: Abu Dhabi, UAE: Aldar Properties PJSC ('Aldar') today provides its latest quarterly update on its projects under development across key destinations in Abu Dhabi. Meera, Aldar's master-planned community on Reem Island, is almost complete ahead of the start of customer handovers this quarter with final approvals and certificates being obtained from relevant authorities. Also on Reem Island, subcontractors have now been appointed for all necessary works at The Bridges, Aldar's six building development launched in April 2017. Slab work and blockwork is progressing well on the three buildings in phase one while excavation work is almost complete on the remaining three buildings. Show villas are now complete and open for viewing at Yas Acres, Aldar's flagship golf and waterfront development on Yas Island.
