Abu Dhabi-based Aldar Properties has announced the launch of its second building at The Source, a residential community that redefines wellness-inspired living in the heart of Saadiyat Island.
The Source II follows on from the sell-out of the first building at ‘The Source’, a community specifically designed with residents’ holistic health and wellbeing at its core. The initial offering experienced huge interest from overseas buyers with all 204 units sold within days of launch, stated the developer.
The latest development comprises 148 modern residential units, designed to complement Saadiyat Island’s cultural and natural surroundings.
Residents will also have the opportunity to explore some of the UAE's most thrilling cultural landmarks, including the Louvre Abu Dhabi, the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, the Abrahamic Family House, and the Natural History Museum, it stated.
According to Aldar, The Source II blends luxury, sustainability, and comfort, in line with its commitment towards Net Zero and supporting the environmental sustainability and well-being of its communities.
Targeting a 2 Pearl Estidama rating and LEED certification, the development incorporates sustainable design principles and green building technology to save water and reduce carbon emissions.
It also offers residents a haven for wellbeing, with a range of facilities and services focused on enhancing mental and physical health and strengthening social connections, it said.
The development is designed on low carbon guidelines and will be built with smart infrastructure ensuring improved energy efficiency, cleaner and healthier air, and enabling residents to enjoy a clean and holistic way of living, with sophisticated space planning, spa-inspired bathrooms, and avant-garde appliances and amenities throughout, it added.
Chief Commercial Officer Rashed Al Omaira said: "The tremendous response we received following the launch of ‘The Source’ earlier this year further underlines growing demand for homes that present a haven for residents to focus on physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing."
"Aldar continues to invest in the creation of wellness-centric communities, and with the second building, we aim to offer our customers spaces that inspire holistic health and make wellness an integral part of everyday life," noted Al Omaira.
"Abu Dhabi continues to be a prime investment destination and The Source II at Saadiyat Grove offers the perfect blend of culture, seaside tranquillity, and community living that will attract owners and investors alike," he added.
Aldar said the building is designed to enhance energy efficiency, targeting at least an 18% reduction in energy use against Ashrae 2010, an international benchmark that establishes minimum requirements for energy efficiency in buildings.
