TDIC inks Saadiyat Lagoons enabling works deal

Western Bainoona Group will take on six-month contract for ground improvements and site clearance for phase one of project


The Abu Dhabi master developer Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC) has announced it has awarded the enabling works contract for phase one of the Saadiyat Lagoons District to Western Bainoona Group for General Contracting.

According to a statement released by the developer, the six-month contract will cover ground improvements and site clearance. Saadiyat Lagoons is the largest district on the island and will be a premium residential community which will house 29,000 residents across more than 4,300 units.

“We are pleased to announce today awarding the contract for the enabling works for Saadiyat Lagoons District. We launched this project back in April of this year and works are on track in preparation for the main construction of the project,” said Sufain Hasan Al Marzooqi, chief executive officer at TDIC.

“Saadiyat Lagoons District will offer investors and residents a unique lifestyle experience along with proximity to the island’s other districts and their rich leisure, education and cultural offerings. The interest we have received so far has been very promising and we look forward to seeing this project come to life.”

Phase one of the project will include 820 townhouses within a gated community. These will include two and three bedroom units. Residents will also have access to a range of community facilities such as swimming pools and playgrounds, a convenience store and access to a neighbourhood lagoon.

Developed on a six million square metre plot of land, the Lagoons will feature villas and townhouses that offer access to neighbourhood shops, F&B outlets, community pools, children’s play areas, mosques, schools, nurseries and leisure facilities such as a state-of-the-art equestrian centre.

The project has been designed to encourage active lifestyles, with walking and cycling paths located throughout the district and horse-riding trails in the mangroves area.

Future residents and visitors will enjoy the rich gardens and parks, as well as open spaces and a central lagoon located across 2.4 million square metres of open space.

Along with diverse leisure elements, the district will also include two lifestyle and retail destinations: a town centre, which overlooks the central plaza, the central lagoon, a park and a waterfront village.
