Aldar unveils first homes dedicated to holistic health and wellbeing with the launch of ‘the source’ at saadiyat grove
Aldar Properties (‘Aldar’) has announced the launch of a limited number of apartments at The Source, a new living experience that sits within the company’s landmark cultural destination, Saadiyat Grove. The Source is the first project of its kind in the UAE, representing Aldar’s first ‘Wellness’ development – a community specifically designed with residents’ holistic health and wellbeing at its core.
The low-rise community boasts 204 apartments and penthouses and provides residents with a range of unique offerings that cover all aspects of physical and mental wellbeing, from wearables and sleep apps to meditation rooms and premium fitness facilities. The Source is also proactively designed with carefully selected materials, colours, and bioorganic architecture to offer a premium wellness environment and an elevated living experience. Residents will have access to a full suite of amenities, including yoga, Pilates and meditation rooms, gyms, pools, thermal suites and saunas, outdoor and indoor play areas, squash courts, and an exclusive residents’ lounge.
Located at the heart of Saadiyat Cultural District, residents at The Source will enjoy panoramic views of Saadiyat Grove, particularly Zayed National Museum and the exquisite fountains that will become a statement feature of the destination. They will also have a cultural playground to explore on their doorstep with kilometres of walkways, running and cycle tracks, and beaches set against the backdrop of some of the UAE’s top existing and upcoming cultural landmarks. The Louvre Abu Dhabi, the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, the Abrahamic Family House, the Zayed National Museum, and the Natural History Museum are architectural masterpieces that will soon define the skyline of the island. The Source will also be in walking distance to the bustling Mamsha Al Saadiyat, Soul Beach, teamLab Phenomena and residents will have direct access to Saadiyat Grove’s 55,000 square metres of experiential retail, entertainment, and leisure spaces.
Homes at The Source range from 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, 2-bedroom + maid, and 3-bedroom apartments. Each property also comes with a choice of two themes for interior finishing to cater to individual customer preferences.
Rashed Al Omaira, Chief Commercial Officer at Aldar Development, said: “We have seen growing demand for high-quality homes in communities that are purposefully designed and built to support the holistic health and wellbeing of residents. As such, The Source represents a compelling addition to our Saadiyat Grove development, bringing a totally new living concept to the destination after we launched five buildings at Grove Views last year. As the first development of its kind in the UAE, we anticipate strong demand from both owner occupiers that place a premium on wellbeing, and the international investors that are increasingly turning to Abu Dhabi as a prime investment destination.”
The Source also has social and environmental sustainability measures across all aspects of the project. Targeting a minimum of a 2 Pearl Estidama rating, the project will feature sustainable design elements that reduce carbon emissions and water usage throughout the design, build, and living phases of the development. Construction is set to start in Q4 2023, with handovers estimated for Q3 2026.
