Aldar Properties has announced steady progress across all its real estate projects, with Yas Island’s Ansam and Al Raha Beach’s Al Hadeel moving closer towards completion and handover in 2017.

The developer said 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, Aldar said in a statement that 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, Aldar said.  

The community's 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, Aldar added.

The developer said that 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.

At Yas Acres, enabling works have commenced in order to ready the site for the award of the main contract by the end of June.

At Shams Abu Dhabi on Al Reem Island, Aldar said the Shams Closed Canal is now nearing completion along with the public realm streetscape. Also on Al Reem Island, at Shams Meera, Aldar’s first mid-market project, construction activity is on-going with the focus currently on steel reinforcements and foundation work, as well as columns and walls for the basement levels.

In Al Ain, work continues on the expansion of Al Jimi Mall, which is expected to be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2018, Aldar added.
