ABU DHABI, -- The Tourism Development and Investment Company, TDIC, announced today that the construction of Jawaher Saadiyat, the gated residential community facing Saadiyat Beach Golf Course within the Saadiyat Beach District, is more than 22 percent complete, with ongoing works progressing within schedule.

The achievement of this milestone is a result of TDIC's close collaboration with its main contractor, Al Jaber Building. The project was awarded in July of last year following a competitive tendering process. Scheduled for delivery in the latter half of 2018, prospective buyers can secure their units through an initial 2.5 percent deposit, with villa and townhouse prices ranging from AED5.1 million to AED17.8 million.

Sufian Hasan Al Marzooqi, CEO of TDIC, said, "We are proud to witness the construction of Jawaher Saadiyat, one of the most distinctive residential projects at the Saadiyat Beach District, currently progressing ahead of schedule. With its prime location overlooking the Saadiyat Beach golf course and the sense of exclusivity and lifestyle options it offers residents, Jawaher Saadiyat continues to receive interest from investors and will undoubtedly drive demand for our real estate offerings on Saadiyat even further."

Since the contractor's mobilisation in August 2016, construction on the project has proceeded in earnest.

Hadeel Al Qadi, Jawaher Saadiyat Senior Project Manager at TDIC, said, "We are working closely with our contractor and consultants to monitor the project's development and ensure upholding the highest standards across all phases of construction. The completion of the foundations for all 83 units is a milestone achievement, and we look forward to meeting or exceeding all our future development targets while maintaining the design and quality of the project."
