Majid Al Futtaim completes earthwork at key UAE project

DUBAI, July 18, 2018

Majid Al Futtaim, the leading shopping mall, communities, retail and leisure pioneer across the Middle East, Africa and Asia, said it has completed major earthmoving work for Phase One of its new flagship project, Tilal Al Ghaf coming up over a 3-million-sq-m area in Dubai, UAE.

A mixed-use community, Tilal Al Ghaf will feature four neighbourhoods, each having its own unique character, with the Serenity and Harmony areas the first two offered as part of the launch phase.

Serenity is a collection of 40 five- and six-bedroom upper luxury villas, offering striking waterfront views across Lagoon Al Ghaf as well as from the elevated ridge towards south-west Dubai.

Harmony has a diversity of living options, from single-storey bungalows to expansive three-storey family villas, all with the principle of connecting indoor and outdoor spaces and linked by parkways and trails, said the developer.

The grading works, which cover around 1.1 million sq m, include excavation for Lagoon Al Ghaf, the community’s landmark swimmable crystal lagoon, and The Hive retail and leisure area that will form the heart of Tilal Al Ghaf, and site preparation for around 550 villas.

In addition, earthworks included formation of temporary access roads to the site, comprising the sales centre and show village, said a statement from Majid Al Futtaim.

In total, earthworks have excavated around 1.6 million cu m of rock and soil from the site and of this nearly one million cu m has been reused as fill, creating level ground to enable speedy construction. Nearly 37 per cent of the site work has been competed ahead of schedule, it added.

Hawazen Esber, CEO of Communities at Majid Al Futtaim - Properties, said: "As a developer, Majid Al Futtaim has established a proven track record of creating landmark destinations with the highest quality standards. The completion of Tilal Ghaf’s first phase earthworks ahead of schedule is a key milestone towards welcoming our first visitors and, ultimately, our first residents onsite to experience our mixed-use lifestyle offering."

According to Esber, the community sales centre, show village and parts of Lagoon Al Ghaf and The Hive are expected to be active onsite by the fourth quarter.

Majid Al Futtaim, which launched the project in April this year, is set to invest around Dh14 billion ($3.8 billion) into this flagship community development over the next 10 years.

When complete, the phased project will include more than 6,500 freehold homes, ranging from apartments, townhouses and bungalows, through to substantial luxury villas. The first villas are scheduled to be delivered in 2020, while the scheme is set for completion in 2027, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
