Abu Dhabi-based IMKAN has awarded contracts for a number of projects across its portfolio of domestic and international developments.
Works have begun on its Makers District, Nudra, and Sheikha Fatima Park projects in Abu Dhabi as well as the Alburouj development in Cairo, Egypt.
Walid El-Hindi, CEO of IMKAN, said: “We are truly proud of the headway we are making across our projects at home and abroad. Our projects bring a unique design sensibility, quality and way of life to the cities they are part of.”
National Marine Dredging Company has nearly completed the reclamation of six hectares of land for public use at Makers District, the 18-hectare master-planned development on Reem Island.
Enabling works for Pixel, the residential component of the district will commence in Q2 2018, the developer said in a statement.
IMKAN also started excavation on its Nudra development, laying the foundations for the community that is taking shape in the Cultural District on Saadiyat Island.
Set to comprise 37 beachside villas, the developer has awarded a construction contract for Nudra to the joint-venture of Wates and Eastern.
Wates is a renowned UK company that has executed restoration works on Buckingham Palace and St. Paul’s Cathedral, while Sharjah-based construction and civil engineering firm Eastern brings four decades of local experience to the table.
IMKAN has also awarded the contract for the construction of Abu Dhabi’s first open-air leisure and entertainment green, Sheikha Fatima Park, to local contractor Al Fara’a.
Construction is also well underway on Alburouj – a fully integrated community, situated in the rapidly developing residential area of East Cairo and set to include more than 1,200 units over an area of 5 million sq m.
The project includes the Sheikh Zayed Mosque that pays homage to the founding father of the UAE, late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. The first residential communities of Alburouj are slated for handover in Q2 2019.
