Aldar awards $8m contract for Mayan project in Abu Dhabi

Dutch Foundations begins early works on five-month contract

Aldar Properties, the Abu Dhabi-listed property development, investment and management company, has awarded the early works contract for Phase 1 of Mayan to Dutch Foundations, it has announced.

A luxury residential development located on Yas Island, Mayan consists of 512 apartments spread across five buildings. The $8.16 million contract provides for the shoring, piling and earthworks on the project, Aldar said.

Dutch Foundations is an Abu Dhabi-based full-service engineering foundation company. It has been appointed to carry out the work over a five-month period, with commencement effective immediately.

“The enthusiasm for Mayan since its launch last year has been extremely encouraging,” said Talal Al Dhiyebi, chief development officer at Aldar Properties.

“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.”

The development offers studios, one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments, as well as a limited number of golf course homes and beach-front villas. In addition, the community will offer residents multiple swimming pools, children’s play areas, gymnasiums and retail outlets.

Mayan is also centrally located, with Yas Island’s many leisure and entertainment destinations – such as Yas Mall, Yas Marina, Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Waterworld and Ferrari World Abu Dhabi – just minutes away.
