Developer Aldar Properties has launched ‘The Cedars’ within its Yas Acres golf and waterfront development in Abu Dhabi. According to a statement from the firm, the project ‘puts nature at its heart’ and is part of its strategy to create unique communities within the Yas Acres’ master plan.
Once the new community is complete, it will add 1,315 townhouses and villas to the northern shores of Yas Island. Construction is said to already be underway, with the handovers of the first 652 homes scheduled for 2019.
Speaking about the project, Aldar says that residents will be able to take advantage of landscaped parks, running and cycling tracks, shade ways, indoor and outdoor gyms, and community pool areas along with playgrounds, swimming pools, sports facilities and BBQ areas located in each villa cluster.
The development will also have a Golf and Country Club, and the developer says that a waterfront apartment district with shops and food and beverage outlets is also planned for the future. The project will also boast two school plots, both of which are said to have already been acquired by a local investment firm.
The community is in close proximity to two international schools, ideal for growing families. It will also feature a cycling and jogging track, beautifully landscaped parks perfect for picnics, barbecues, and outdoor yoga, as well as retail and community centers dotted with cafes, restaurants, and shops. Essential to any community, mosques are conveniently located along the avenues.
