Announcement made as Modon Properties breaks ground on development
Modon Properties says it has appointed Arabtec Construction to build the Show Village development in Khalifa City, a new suburb of the UAE capital Abu Dhabi and the largest residential development in the emirate. The developer said it made the announcement during a groundbreaking ceremony attended by Abdulla Al Sahi, CEO of Modon Properties, Hamish Tyrwhitt, Group CEO, Arabtec Holding, Boyd Merrett, CEO, Arabtec Construction, and other executives from both companies.
The Show Village will feature a collection of nine show villas designed with the Emirati family in mind and will be ready by the fourth quarter this year, said Modon Properties. The villa designs were developed based on the findings of the ‘Build Your Happiness’ survey conducted by Modon Properties earlier this year to identify the needs and aspirations of Emiratis when building their dream homes.
“When we embarked on developing the masterplan for Riyadh City, we had two objectives,” said Abdulla Al Sahi. “The first is to give Emiratis a hassle-free process to tailor-make their dream homes and the second is to build state-of-the-art properties of the highest standards possible. Breaking ground on the Show Village is a significant milestone for Modon Properties and the Riyadh City project. Customers visiting the Show Village will be able to see and experience the quality they can expect from us, before they sign their contracts. We believe in building communities that matter and we are committed to doing so.”
Arabtec’s Boyd Merrett said the contractor was “pleased to have been appointed” by Modon Properties to deliver the Show Village for Abu Dhabi’s largest residential development and that the company looks forward to building their partnership in the future.
“Modon’s commitment to quality aligns with our commitment to delivering premium representations of what the future residents of Riyadh City can expect,” he said.
Arabtec Holding Group’s Hamish Tyrwhitt added: “We are delighted to be celebrating the ground breaking of the Show Village with Modon Properties today. Riyadh City represents an innovative offering to Emirati’s and we look forward to playing a key role in showcasing that in the coming months. This project award represents our competency in residential contracting and our innovative delivery methodologies, supporting our commitment to delivering projects in our core competencies and key geographies.”
