Modon Properties, a master developer mandated by the Abu Dhabi government to develop vibrant housing projects and communities in the Emirate, announced today the appointment of Arabtec Construction, a wholly owned subsidiary of Arabtec Holding, a leading contractor for social and economic infrastructure, to build the Show Village. The announcement came during the groundbreaking ceremony of the Show Village. The event was attended by Abdulla Al Sahi, Chief Executive Officer of Modon Properties, Hamish Tyrwhitt, Group Chief Executive Officer of Arabtec Holding, Boyd Merrett, Chief Executive Officer of Arabtec Construction, and other executives from both companies.
The Show Village, located in Khalifa City, will feature a collection of nine show villas designed with the Emirati family in mind and will be ready by the fourth quarter this year. The villa designs were developed based on the findings of the “Build Your Happiness” survey conducted by Modon Properties earlier this year to identify the needs and aspirations of Emiratis when building their dream homes.
Commenting on the announcement, Abdulla Al Sahi, said, “When we embarked on developing the masterplan for Riyadh City, we had two objectives. The first is to give Emiratis a hassle-free process to tailor-make their dream homes and the second is to build state-of-the-art properties of the highest standards possible. Breaking ground on the Show Village is a significant milestone for Modon Properties and the Riyadh City project. Customers visiting the Show Village will be able to see and experience the quality they can expect from us, before they sign their contracts. We believe in building communities that matter and we are committed to doing so.”
Arabtec’s Boyd Merrett said: “We are pleased to have been appointed by Modon Properties to deliver the Show Village for Abu Dhabi’s largest residential development and look forward to building our partnership in the future. Modon’s commitment to quality aligns with our commitment to delivering premium representations of what the future residents of Riyadh City can expect.”
Arabtec Holding Group Chief Executive Officer, Hamish Tyrwhitt added: “We are delighted to be celebrating the ground breaking of the Show Village with Modon Properties today. Riyadh City represents an innovative offering to Emirati’s and we look forward to playing a key role in showcasing that in the coming months. This project award represents our competency in residential contracting and our innovative delivery methodologies, supporting our commitment to delivering projects in our core competencies and key geographies.”
Modon Properties aims to provide iconic housing options and build vibrant and sustainable residential communities that meet the needs and expectations of the Emirati family.
