Construction Progress - Mid June 2015

It has been about three months since project launch and progress is clear on what appears to be the area for the Zahra, Hayat and Safi apartments and townhouses. This forms just one part of the large Town Square project.

The Town Square development is bordered by Al Qudra Road (left side of image above) ending at the cycle track roundabout, where three towers of an earlier residential project can be seen in the background. Emirates Road (formerly referred to as the Bypass Road) forms another border of the development (bottom of image above--highway not pictured).

Close up, the land preparation works can be seen progressing in earnest.

The prepared surface area is quite expansive, as seen in the image above, and a long row of palm trees has been planted along the Al Qudra Road perimeter.

These photos were taken on the morning of 16 June, clearly showing work well underway. Two months earlier the landscape was similarly covered with ground work vehicles just beginning to plow the sand dunes.

In the background is the Remreem development on the opposite side of Emirates Road. Now, has only the landscape been flattened or have some utilities been installed below the surface? As a layperson I can only guess. I presume the utilities works will start later.
