Abu Dhabi-based real estate developer Al Farwaniya Property Developments has revealed that infrastructure piling works on Reem Mall are just a “matter of weeks” from completion following the structure topping out.
The topping out of Reem Mall marks the latest milestone for the development within the last 18 months and will be the region’s first fully digitally enabled smart shopping centre.
The structure will also be aligned with a 23,000m2 logistics hub and connected warehouses to the world’s largest snow park, Snow Abu Dhabi — designed by UK practice Pascall + Watson.
In a statement the developer said that 14 tower cranes were deployed at the site, with 70,000 m2 of concrete slabs have been installed for the project already.
The property developer said more than 6,300 tonnes of steel structural frame has been included in the structure to date and fabrication is progressing in areas such as Snow Park plant rooms, link bridges, and the cinema which has reached 98% completion.
They added that more than 50% of vertical transportation equipment, such as elevators and lifts, has now been installed on site and fit-out works have commenced.
Speaking about the project, chief executive officer of Al Farwaniya Property Developments, Shane Eldstrom said: “This is a massive milestone we have achieved here. Infrastructure piling works are just a matter of weeks from completion, with pile caps and bridge piers for the flythrough that will give seamless access to the mall."
“We look forward to delivering this world class destination, to the people of Abu Dhabi and the wider UAE.”
