The UAE’s Bloom Holdings, has received the approvals to build a 2.2km² mixed-use master development near Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Bloom's CEO Sameh Muhtadi confirmed the name of the new master development and details that it will be composed of apartments, townhouses and villas to be built over 15 years. He also revealed it would eventually include two schools, a hospital, and a community retail centre.
“Bloom District could become our biggest development since the company was created in 2007. This is a very long-term project for us, which will be built over six phases.”
The initial infrastructure phase for Bloom District will begin in early 2019.
The real estate developer also owns Bloom Education, which earlier this year signed an agreement for possible school locations in Saudi Arabia.
The Bloom Education portfolio currently includes Brighton College Abu Dhabi and Brighton College Al Ain. The two schools will be joined by the highly anticipated Brighton College Dubai and Dwight School Dubai in September 2018.
The company also recently launched the Singaporean nursery brand Mind Champs into Abu Dhabi.
