Aldar Properties has awarded the project management (PM) consulting contract for its Water's Edge project.

Canada-headquartered EllisDon has been named to deliver PM consultancy for the project, which has a gross floor area of 25ha. 

Construction has begun on the project, for which Trojan General Contracting was named main contractor earlier this month. 

The $653.4m (AED2.4bn) Water’s Edge development on Yas Island comprises studios, and one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments across 13 apartment buildings.

Its amenities include a waterfront promenade with a number of dining and retail facilities. It also features private courtyards with landscaped areas, pools, multipurpose courts, and a mosque.

EllisDon has previously worked with Aldar to deliver the Ansam project on Yas Island.

Commenting on the contract, Wissam Ayoub, vice president for EllisDon's Middle East operation, said: "[We are] thrilled with the award for the PM services for the Water's Edge Development, and honoured by Aldar's trust in EllisDon.

"We are confident this will be another great success for Aldar and the whole team."
