Abu Dhabi developer Aldar completes Repton school on Reem Island

Construction on the school began in May 2016 and was completed in August 2017

Abu Dhabi developer Aldar Properties has completed the Repton School project on Reem Island and has handed it over to operator EKI ahead of the commencement of the 2017/18 academic year, it announced on Sunday.

The project consists of two main buildings – one focused on teaching, and the other on sports.

Occupying a 2.5 hectare plot, the main school building includes a basement, ground floor and three higher floors.

Athletic facilities include tennis courts, a 25m Olympic standard swimming pool and two multi-purpose gyms.

The school also features a dance theatre.

Construction commenced in May 2016 and was completed in August 2017, a statement said.

The school is located within Aldar’s master planned community on Reem Island, close to other projects such as Sun & Sky Towers, The Gate & Arc Towers, Meera – currently under construction, and The Bridges.

Talal Al Dhiyebi, chief development officer at Aldar said: “The school is located in a catchment area that will benefit a great number of people living in Aldar homes on Reem Island.”

Located 600m off the north eastern coast of Abu Dhabi, Reem Island includes residential, commercial and retail developments. A new Vida Hotel and Branded Residences is also set to come up on the island, with construction beginning this year.

The island will also host a $1bn shopping centre – Reem Mall – which is expected to feature 450 stores and an indoor snow park across 2 million sqft of leaseable space.

However, the mall – due to open in 2018 – has now been pushed back by two years.
