Recreational lifestyle plans for Najmat on Reem Island

Filed on September 11, 2011

ABU DHABI Reem Investments has appointed Gulf Dunes Landscaping and Agricultural Services to construct the Marina Promenade and Beach Park at Najmat, the 165-hectare township development on the southern shore of Reem Island.

The appointment underlines Reem Investments’ commitment to providing innovative green and open spaces within its master developments. The contract awarded to Gulf Dunes will include the construction of a kilometer-long promenade, a green amphitheatre lined with trees and shrubs not usually seen in the UAE and a white sand beach.

Works will commence immediately and are expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2012.

“When completed, Najmat will be a vibrant hub of activity where visitors and residents can stroll along the promenade, dine by the waterside or soak up the sun on the beach any day of the week,” said Paul Ashton, Development Director of Reem Developers, the master developer of Najmat and the real estate arm of Reem Investments.

The Manhattan-like township of Najmat’s phase 1 and the low density, open spaces of phases 2 and 3 were designed to provide a healthy balance of work, life and recreation for more than 50,000 people. Costing Dh1 billion to build, state-of-the-art infrastructure — the first phase of which is already complete — will support more than 51 million square feet gross floor area of commercial, residential, hospitality and communal facilities. “The Marina will be home to 167 berthing spaces for boats, a food-and-beverage island in the middle of the water and a 3km long walkway of street cafés and restaurants that stretch from the Promenade to the Canal Walk.”

“We expect Abu Dhabi’s residents and tourists alike will flock to this area in the heart of Reem Island in search of entertainment”, added Ho Kiam Kheong, Chief Development Officer of Reem Developers.

Matar Al Yabhouni, GM of Gulf Dunes said, “We are excited to be closely involved with the development of the Marina Promenade and Beach Park at Najmat and are confident that it will become a popular destination in Abu Dhabi.
