A major residential project for Saadiyat Island has been unveiled at Cityscape Abu Dhabi which will see 4,000 homes built.
The emirate’s Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC) announced the launch of the Saadiyat Lagoons District which will be home to 29,000 people.
The development will feature contemporary townhouses, villas and apartments that offer access to neighbourhood shops, food and beverage outlets, children’s play areas, mosques and leisure facilities including an equestrian centre.
HE Ali Majed Al Mansoori, TDIC’s chairman, said: “Saadiyat Lagoons District is set to be a vibrant destination for both residents and visitors, which offers a unique lifestyle experience along with proximity to the island’s other districts and their rich leisure, education and cultural offerings.
“We are confident that this development will raise interest in Saadiyat even further while strengthening its position as a leading destination across all sectors.”
The Saadiyat Lagoons District will be developed in phases with the first phase including 820 townhouses set in a gated community.
Walking and cycling paths will be located throughout the district and horse-riding trails will be set alongside the area’s mangrove lagoons.
Future plans include gardens and parks, as well as open spaces and a central lagoon
The district will also include two lifestyle and retail destinations: a town centre, which overlooks a central lagoon and linear park, and a waterfront village, located close to the water’s edge and accessible by various paths.
