Land reclamation complete for shaping Coconut Island in Abu Dhabi

One of the prominent realty developers of Abu Dhabi, ALDAR Properties PJSC, has announced completion of its land reclamation and dredging for the major island resort and gated residential development at the Abu Dhabi West Coast.

This project is a combined effort through partnership with National Corporation for Tourism and Hotels (NCT &H) and is due for completion by 2010.

At present, the approval of master plan of Coconut Island, and the appointment of architects for the projects have been done. The new lagoon of the island, which would form the center-piece of the project, has taken shape. The next step to be done is soil investigation, soil improvement and shoreline protection works, prior to commencing the buildings and other infrastructure works.

Coconut Island is expected to be a five star luxury resort, comprising 160 guest rooms, a spa, restaurants and marina. The island has a sand bar encompassed by clear turquoise waters thereby providing idyllic setting for relaxation. Apart from the resort, the island will have three and four bedroom apartment buildings, and six, five and four bedroom villas, and other spectacular views of the Arabian Gulf.

Senior Project Leader, ALDAR Properties, Rami Hreiki, said that both ALDAR and NCT&H, together, will continue to strive to bring this exciting project to fruition.
