He elaborated: “These directives are aligned with the goals of Abu Dhabi Plan, which seeks to provide members of the community with housing that guarantees a high quality of life. The development of Riyadh City is one of the most significant residential projects in Abu Dhabi today, helping to develop the Emirate’s housing sector to meet citizens’ current aspirations. Through selecting the services of Modon, the Abu Dhabi Government is working with international specialists in the housing sector, ensuring an excellent quality of public infrastructure and providing residents with sustainable housing, in line with the future vision of Abu Dhabi.”
Sulaiman Al Siksek, Deputy CEO of Modon, commented: “By implementing this project in Riyadh City South, Modon is enhancing its participation in the development of Abu Dhabi’s housing sector. It will provide integrated housing communities for our citizens, offering modernity, which confirms to global best practices. Through this, we are able to provide high quality and stable lives to those who chose to reside within our communities. Modon’s housing projects will transform the housing sector and ensure that it keeps pace with the future vision of Abu Dhabi.”
“The awarding of these contracts move us another step closer to the completion of Riyadh City South, and our vision of welcoming new home-owners into unique and vibrant communities. This is the second round of infrastructure contracts to have been awarded by Modon, with the first phase of contracts awarded in September 2019. These are in line with the Abu Dhabi Government’s plan to build integrated and sustainable residential communities,” added Al Siksek.
