Dutch Foundations bags $8m deal for Aldar’s Mayan

Abu Dhabi-based developer Aldar Properties has awarded the early works contract for the first phase of Mayan, a luxury residential development located on Yas Island, to Dutch Foundation & Concrete Rehabilitation Company WLL.

The $8m (AED30m) contract provides for shoring, piling, and earthworks for Mayan’s 512 luxury apartments, spread across five buildings.

The Abu Dhabi-based full-service engineering foundation contractor has been appointed to carry out the work over a five month period with commencement effective immediately.

Talal Al Dhiyebi, chief development officer at Aldar, commented: “The enthusiasm for Mayan since its launch last year has been extremely encouraging. We have witnessed strong demand for luxury residences in prime locations, and Mayan caters to this demand with high quality homes in Abu Dhabi’s most exciting destination, Yas Island which is home to a number of world class amenities and attractions.”

Situated on Yas Island, Mayan offers studios, one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments, as well as a select number of golf course homes and beach-front villas.

Mayan residents will benefit from the community’s multiple swimming pools, children play areas, gymnasiums, and retail outlets. Mayan is also minutes away from Yas Island’s leisure and entertainment destinations, including Yas Mall, Yas Marina, Yas Marina Circuit, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, and Yas Waterworld, as well as the dining and entertainment options at Yas Plaza hotels.
