Abu Dhabi-based developer Modon Properties has awarded the first phase infrastructure contracts for the southern side of its AED 1.53 billion (SAR 1.56 billion) Riyadh City project.
The contract was awarded to three companies, namely Nael & Bin Harmal Hydroexport Establishment, National Projects & Construction, and Al Jimi & Partners Contracting Company.
The project, which is being built in co-operation with Abu Dhabi Housing Authority, covers a range of facilities, including parks, schools, shops, mosques, health care and community centers.
“Through providing a comprehensive set of service facilities, the community infrastructure will meet the needs of the UAE citizens,” Basheer Khalfan Al Mehairbi, acting director-general of Abu Dhabi Housing Authority, said in a statement.
The infrastructure works will begin next month, and will cover 8.4 million square meters. The first phase of the project comprises more than 3,300 residential plots, seven schools, two kindergartens, two health care centers, 18 mosques, 14 commercial plots, a civil defense center, a number of petrol stations and five plots designated for government buildings.
“The government of Abu Dhabi is developing residential communities which provide a good quality of life. Part of developing a community is the construction of the high quality infrastructure for the future residents of Riyadh City,” Al Mehairbi added.
Infrastructure work in the southern part of Riyadh City will span five phases, with the remaining portion expected to start next year, serving a total of 13,000 plots, the statement said.
