Saadiyat Lagoons: New Abu Dhabi district set to home 29,000 residents
The Saadiyat Lagoons, the largest district on Abu Dhabi’s luxury Saadiyat Island, has been launched by The Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC).
“The Lagoons District is a premium residential community which is expected to become home to 29,000 residents across more than 4,000 residential units,” TDIC said in a statement following the unveiling at Cityscape Abu Dhabi 2016.
It said the 6 million square-metre, mixed-use development will feature contemporary townhouses, villas and apartments that offer access to neighbourhood shops, F&B outlets, children’s play areas, mosques and leisure facilities such as a state-of-the-art equestrian centre.
The Lagoons District will be developed in phases with the first phase including 820 townhouses set in a gated community. The townhouses will make up 236 two-bedroom units and 584 three-bedroom units featuring a contemporary style. Out of the 820 townhouses, only 246 units will be made available for sale after Cityscape Abu Dhabi.
TDIC said the district has been designed “to encourage active lifestyles”, with walking and cycling paths located throughout.
