Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC), master developer of Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi, announced the start of handover of Saadiyat Beach Villas.
Residents have started moving into the high-end villas on the residential community, which is located in the Saadiyat Beach district of the island.
The first phase of the development, which consists of 254 villas, was launched in 2009 and completely sold out.
A second batch of 90 villas was released in November 2011 to meet demand, and handover of both phases is set to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2012.
The villas come in three styles – Arabian, Mediterranean and Contemporary – and contain three to six bedrooms.
Community services include a purpose-built nursery for up to 120 children, a retail centre, mosque, ladies beach club and international school. The developments will be completed by 2013.
In November 2011, TDIC opened the 377-room St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi, as well as Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas, developed by Abu Dhabi National Hotels company.
