The project comprises six residential village estates located between Yas Island and Saadiyat Island
Lead Development has said that it has achieved a major milestone at its $2.7bn Jubail Island Development in Abu Dhabi. The firm said that the energisation of electrical substations is an important step towards completing the infrastructure works and handing over of the land plots.
With the planned substations powered up, Abu Dhabi Construction Company can now move ahead with key test and commissioning work for the villa’s and townhouses. The project, which is owned by JIIC and being developed and managed by Lead, will be home to an idyllic collection of six residential village estates located between Yas Island and Saadiyat Island, the statement said.
“We are pleased to announce the energization of the substations in Jubail Island, which represents a significant milestone in the infrastructure development of Jubail Island. By carefully planning the project’s development, stage by stage, we have been able to achieve this important facet of our overall delivery schedule and with the completion of the infrastructure works, we can continue in earnest across the entire project,” stated Engineer Abdulla Saeed Al Shamsi, Corporate Director of Jubail Island Investment Company.
In early June 2022, JIIC awarded $11mn in contracts to APCC for a new 66-berth marina in Marfa Al Jubail and later in the month, the firm awarded CSCEC ME a $60mn contract to build the Souk Al Jubail townhouses.
A vital step in the project’s ongoing development, the energisation secures power for any future construction work across the island, and provides electricity for the vacant land plots, and allows for the hand over of the plots this month, said the statement from Lead Development.
With this move, buyers who have received their plots can begin independently developing their private mansions. It means that delivery of plots, villas and townhouses on the Island is proceeding as per schedule, the statement concluded.
In early January 2023, Lead Development introduced ‘The Souk’ on Jubail Island.
