Work in full swing at $1.2bn Abu Dhabi shopping mall


Work is in full swing at Abu Dhabi’s $1.2 billion Reem Mall, the emirate's leading retail, dining and leisure destination, with the substructure nearly finished and several sections of floor already completed, said a top official.

Unveiling the construction progress, Al Farwaniya Property Developments, the developer behind Reem Mall, said that infrastructure works have begun with geotechnical investigations required for the project's elevated roads which will provide unparalleled access to the mall for visitors.

The construction of the mall began in late 2017, and within the first few months, 13 tower cranes had been erected and raft foundation works were well advanced with over 55,000 cu m – more than 9,000 truckloads – of concrete set in place, and over 5,500 tonnes of reinforcement installed.

Reem Mall site is located in the Najmat District on Reem Island, the residential and commercial master-development by Reem Developers which, on completion, will boast a population of 200,000.

Commenting on the construction update, Al Farwaniya Property Developments CEO Shane Eldstrom said work on the superstructure of the project was now under way with the first suspended slabs recently poured and vertical works progressing across the whole site.

"We are very excited about the pace at which Reem Mall construction is progressing. The cranes are on site, we have nearly completed the substructure and have already completed several sections of floor in the superstructure," stated Eldstrom.

Once ready, Reem Mall will bring 2 million sq ft of leasable area which will comprise more than 450 retail brands, dining options as well as a range of entertainment concepts, including the much-anticipated Snow Park Abu Dhabi, a destination snow park attraction.

"We look forward to delivering this world-class destination, to the people of Abu Dhabi and the wider UAE," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
