Infrastructure work at the Hidd Al Saadiyat luxury beachfront resort in Abu Dhabi is “nearly finished”.
The development will feature 461 villas on a land area covering nearly 1.5 million square metres of natural waterfront land within Saadiyat Island. Initial construction on Hidd Al Saadiyat began in January 2013, and the project handover will begin at the end of 2016.
“We are proud to announce that Hidd Al Saadiyat’s key infrastructure work is nearly finished,” said Greg Slingerland, project director. “We are happy to be one step closer to welcoming our residents to enjoying their luxury homes before end of the year, which offer a unique balance between nature and modern living.”
Among the activities that have concluded are all of the underground services including water, sewerage and electrical cables, which have been installed with final testing and commissioning of these services complete. Additionally, all electrical substations and lifting stations have also been completed and are scheduled to be tested and commissioned.
The project’s main roads have all been paved allowing vehicular and foot traffic at the development to be sustained. Furthermore, work on the footpaths and villa driveways are to commence in the upcoming months.
