Arabian Construction Company (ACC) has been awarded the construction contract for the first phase of 300 villas of Jubail Island in Abu Dhabi by Jubail Island Investment Company (JIIC).
The AED5-billion ($1.36 billion) Jubail Island sprawls across 4,000 hectares of mangrove forests and coastal estuaries with more than 30 km of waterfront. It will be home to six distinct village communities located between Yas Island and Saadiyat Island, with bespoke, picturesque residential areas and community facilities. It will also become Abu Dhabi’s leading sanctuary designed to appeal to wellness and nature enthusiasts, positioned amid the rich biodiversity of the mangroves.
More than 60 per cent of infrastructure has already been completed, thus paving away for the ground-breaking work to begin on the Mediterranean-inspired villas within Phase One of Jubail Island. It is due for completion in the fourth quarter of 2023, according to the developer.
With each of its villages boasting its own identity and elegant design, Jubail Island will offer residents a choice of luxurious, elegantly designed villas, apartments and townhouses, all meticulously constructed ample distances apart, to allow for optimum privacy and comfort.
The first 300 villas to be created in Phase One are the first move towards creating a low-density project offering three- to six-bedroom villas on vast land plots from 1,300 sq m to 6,000 sq m.
JIIC Managing Director Mounir Haidar says: “We are delighted to partner with Arabian Construction Company to build the first phase of this iconic and unique development, which is located right in the heart of Abu Dhabi. Their reputation and expertise, allied with a proven track record of delivering to the highest quality standards on time, are a perfect fit with our own meticulous approach to excellence.”
“We have assembled a world-class design, consultancy and construction team including Ramon Esteve Estudio, EHAF, SHH and WSA, that will deliver unrivalled luxury and premium community living, with a low-impact and low-density settlement footprint that was created to cater for Emirati lifestyle preferences,” he states.
On the contract win, ACC Group Chairman Ghassan Merehbi says: “We are delighted that JIIC has selected us to deliver the first phase within the Jubail Island community. This marks another quality residential project, demonstrating ACC’s strength and core competency in the building sector.”
ACC is a premier construction contractor that had been operating in the regional marketplace for more than 50 years.
