• Total contract value: AED 3 Billion 
• Innovo Build LLC Secures Elysian Contract, Unec Leads Alaya Project

Dubai, UAE, 22 January 2024: Majid Al Futtaim Development, part of Majid Al Futtaim, has today announced the breaking of ground across two upcoming residential features in its flagship lifestyle destination, Tilal Al Ghaf.  The contracts, totaling AED 3 Billion, have been awarded for Alaya and Elysian Mansions, with both neighbourhoods anticipated to be completed by mid-2026.

Majid Al Futtaim Development has named Innovo Build LLC, a part of the ASGC group, as the primary contractor for the development of Elysian Mansions. Elysian Mansions boasts a distinctive collection of customisable five-to-six-bedroom waterfront villas inspired by the Elysian Fields of Greek mythology. Designed by globally renowned architects and interior designers, Elysian stands as a bespoke community featuring 94 exclusive mansions that epitomize luxury. The essence of Elysian Mansions lies in the harmonious convergence of Art, Culture, Architecture, and Nature, all contributing to an enriched living experience. This unique development serves as a testament to the belief that these elements not only elevate the aesthetic appeal of homes but also profoundly enhance the quality of life for its residents. With living areas starting at 11,000 square feet, the technology-enabled homes are marked by luxurious design and sophisticated architecture, setting the community apart as a hallmark development with some of the most distinctive and thoughtful residences to date. Groundworks for the project have already concluded, and the contractor is actively working towards the targeted completion date of mid-2026.

The contract for Alaya, has been successfully awarded to Unec, a leading construction entity in the region. The project will span 26 months for a handover date of early 2026. Comprising 407 grand villas, the neighbourhood is surrounded by spacious landscaped grounds, allowing for additional privacy while still remaining connected to the community and its facilities. With customisable façade selections – including the Modernist or the bright Mediterranean – and extended Zen Suites, which can be tailored to accommodate for residents’ preferences, Alaya is set to further enhance Tilal Al Ghaf’s appeal as an exclusive resort-style community.

Hawazen Esber, Chief Executive Officer, Majid Al Futtaim Development, said: “Tilal Al Ghaf is a representation of our commitment to deliver human-centric lifestyle destinations that redefine the standards of residential living, and the construction of Elysian Mansions, Alaya, and Lagoon Al Ghaf will continue to pave the way towards delivering a holistic and high-end neighbourhood experience. 

The two contractors have been uniquely awarded to suit the requirements of the individual projects, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with Innovo Build LLC and Unec, who share the capacity, expertise, and reputation to bring our vision to life, maintaining our rigorous sustainability standards and operational processes throughout every construction phase,” he added.

With over three million square metres of walkable neighbourhoods connected by a network of pathways, cycling tracks, jogging trails, and green spaces, Tilal Al Ghaf is Majid Al Futtaim Developments’ flagship mixed-use community, providing a contemporary resort-like living experience in the heart of new Dubai. Each neighbourhood features exceptional amenities to bring residents a healthy and exciting environment inspired by nature. With a dedicated customer-centric approach, Majid Al Futtaim Developments continues to deliver destinations that foster a sense of belonging, which, when paired with robust sustainability targets – such as being Dubai’s first BREEAM interim certified project – continues to set Tilal Al Ghaf apart as a leading lifestyle hub in the city.
