Aldar Properties will also play an active role in this urban regeneration project, where it will develop prime land plots in Mina Zayed, spanning a gross floor area (GFA) of approximately 1.5 million sqm, as a sea front destination. This strategically-located project, adjacent to a vibrant cultural hub and a logistics centre, forms an integral part of Aldar’s future development plans and is in line with its ongoing commitment to develop key destinations that contribute to Abu Dhabi’s long-term growth.
The redevelopment works will begin with the demolition of Meena Plaza Towers on Friday, 27th November, 2020, in collaboration with a leading demolition company, and adopting the highest safety and security standards. A pilot test was carried out earlier this year by DMT, Modon and the demolition company to ensure the highest levels of safety, assess the amount of explosive material required, prepare the necessary protection specifications for volatile substances, measure the noise level caused by the demolition, analyse and measure vibrations caused by the demolition, and secure the site.
The demolition of the four towers, which comprise 144 floors, is estimated to last 10 seconds.
Increased precautionary measures and procedures have been enforced, in collaboration with key strategic partners, to ensure the safety of all residents and visitors.
