Abu Dhabi, April 18, 2010
Capitala, an Abu Dhabi-based developer, highlighted the progress of Rihan Heights, the first residential phase of its maiden project – Arzanah, located in the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque district on Abu Dhabi Island.
Rihan Heights is situated on the north eastern corner of Arzanah, Capitala’s flagship project, and includes five luxurious residential towers with a total of 854 apartments and 14 villas on the site’s perimeter.
Construction on Rihan Heights, which is being developed on 38,000 sq m of prime land, began in late 2008, and is well underway, said a top company official on the sidelines of 'Cityscape Abu Dhabi 2010.'
'The 20th storey of the tallest tower, which when complete will consist of 32 storeys, is expected to be ready by the end of this month and the facades for all five towers to be in place by late Q4 this year,' explained Carlos Obeid, chairman of Capitala.
“Today there are 2000 construction workers on Rihan Heights site and this number will increase to 2500 in the next quarter, a fivefold increase within a single year. We are pleased with the construction progress so far and we are now focussing all our efforts to complete and deliver these premium finished residences,” Obeid stated.
Arzanah, he said, was a 1.4 million sq m development encompassing residential, retail, commercial, sports and leisure components that will offer a unique active urban lifestyle for both residents and the community at large.
The buildings are surrounded by luxuriant gardens and offer a range of recreational features including swimming pool, children’s playground, gym and fitness suite, clubhouse and state of the art security and management systems.
“We have also recently completed Rihan Heights show homes on the 1st floor of tower B and invite all our existing investors and potential customers to visit them.'
The show homes, which include the two and three-bedroom apartments, showcase the layout, finishes and expected quality for this premium residential development. They also highlight the unobstructed views onto the pristine beachfront and the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
