Commenting on the tie-up, Talal Al Dhiyebi, Chief Development Officer, Aldar, said, “Aldar Properties was the first company to be granted a Master Developer licence under the Abu Dhabi Real Estate Law, and this agreement marks our third ESCROW account project. This demonstrates our continued commitment to compliance with the real estate law, and to providing our customers with the greatest possible transparency. As a waterfront, mid-market apartment development, we are pleased with the strong demand for Water’s Edge, and are confident that the ESCROW accounts with UNB will further support this.”
