Marina

Marina build begins on luxury Abu Dhabi island Work has begun on a 110-berth marina at Hidd Al Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The marina is being built by the Ghantoot Group to its own design, and completion is planned for April next year. Saadiyat Island (Happiness Island) is a large, low-lying island of 27km² (10.4 sq miles), off the coast of Abu Dhabi. It is being developed by the Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC), which is allotting land to private investors who will develop sites in accordance with the island’s master plan. When complete, the island is touted to become the city’s cultural centre, home to three museums and a performance and exhibition centre. Initial construction of the island began in January 2013 and is expected to complete in 2020. Split into sections, the marina will be located in Qaryat al Hidd. This section will also contain a café and shops to create a community hub for residents and visitors. The next two sections will contain 461 modern villas, built to harmonise with the on site WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENTS beach landscape. In the final section, prestigious secluded villas will be built with uninterrupted sea views. There will be parks, playgrounds, restaurants, a school, community centre, golf course, 5-star resort and world-class yacht club on the island, all accessible to marina visitors. The island and its marina are being planned and created around an environmentallysensitive philosophy and low-density master plan. Master planning has incorporated designs to reduce impacts on key island habitats, namely mangrove and wetland areas. The TDIC says it is identifying opportunities to create new habitats where possible. The island’s natural beach has been awarded the Blue Flag annually since 2013. The surrounding waters are home to a wide range of wildlife, including Indo-Pacific humpback and bottlenose dolphins, green turtles, stingrays, blacktop sharks and many different birds. Hidd Al Saadiyat project director, Greg Slingerland, said: “We are witnessing the evolution of Hidd Al Saadiyat into a state-of-the-art development, especially now, with the construction of the longanticipated marina.” Esbjerg Denmark 2015 2 pontoons 35 x 5,00 meter We build your breakwater wherever you need it Save up to 30% • Floating breakwaters up to 8 metres wide • Commercial pontoons up to 35 metres long x 200 tonnes • We build ‘on site’ • No transport costs saving you 30% or more YMCA Jetty, UK www.breakwater.eu • Tel. +31(0)416 666 990 www.marinaworld.com - July/August 2016 37
