Arabtec Holding, a leading engineering and construction group of companies specialising in complex projects in the Middle East and North Africa region, announced that the projects showcased at Cityscape Abu Dhabi by its newly launched subsidiary, Arabtec Properties, hold a total value of Dhs14bn.
Arabtec Properties will make its debut at the 8th annual edition of the exhibition at stand 6D10, with a series of high quality, world-class residential and mixed use developments in the design and planning phases. These projects include five local developments, three in Abu Dhabi and two in Dubai.
Hasan Ismaik, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Arabtec Holding, commented, “The projects we aim to showcase at Cityscape Abu Dhabi will, without a doubt, be a distinguished and remarkable addition to Arabtec’s portfolio in the real estate development sector. The Company is building on Arabtec’s solid foundations and long-standing track record of delivering high quality developments in the UAE and across the region.” “Since its launch nearly four months ago, Arabtec Properties made a strong entry into the real estate market, as it has already secured a series of high-level, major projects. We look forward to announcing our upcoming plans for the Company’s activity in the UAE and across the region,” added Ismaik.
Taking centre stage at Arabtec’s stand in Cityscape will be a model of one of the Company’s largest projects, which will see Arabtec Properties construct one million homes in Egypt for lower income Egyptian families. The project will be developed in 13 locations in a number of governorates across the country, at a total value of Dhs140bn.
“With a core focus on low to middle income housing, the Company will soon announce a series of projects similar to the one in Egypt, which will take place across several countries in the UAE and across the Arab world,” noted Ismaik.
In the UAE, Arabtec Properties will also be developing three projects in Abu Dhabi and two in Dubai. The Abu Dhabi-based projects include the Saraya development, two high-quality luxury towers on the Abu Dhabi Corniche, which will stand at 40 and 46 stories high. The towers will include a total of 122 apartments, comprising three and four bedroom apartments, as well as duplex apartments, three townhouses and seven penthouses. The project is due for delivery towards the end of the current year.
Abu Dhabi will also house the C13 development on Reem Island.This remarkable piece of architecture, adjacent to Shams Abu Dhabi, will boast a 5-star hotel, branded serviced apartments, premium residential apartments and high-end retail outlets. The development will include 630 residential apartments including two and three bedroom apartments, as well as 184 serviced apartments and 4600 sqm of retail space. Arabtec is also currently in discussions with international companies to manage the development’s luxury hotel, which will contain 398 rooms.
The C17 development will provide 809 parking spaces, as well as other recreational facilities such as swimming pools, gym and spa. This project is currently in the design phase, and is expected to be completed by 2018.
