Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC), a master developer of cultural, residential and tourism destinations in Abu Dhabi, today announced it has commenced work on 'Deyar Al Mafraq' hotel staff accommodation development in the UAE capital.

The new development, which will open in phases starting from 2011, is the first in Abu Dhabi to have been specifically designed to provide accommodation options for all levels of employees working in the hospitality sector - from top management to junior level staff.

It will offer more opportunities within the local hotel industry, as well as ease the pressure on hotel management chains that are dedicated to managing their operations."The site for the development is located in Al Mafraq area of the city. TDIC will remain the master developer for the area and specific plots will be available to various hotel owners to manage the accommodation of their staff, as part of the master plan, which has been finalised and approved by the Urban Planning Council.

While TDIC is developing the first phase which includes two plots, it will also lease out the remaining plots to investors from the private sector who will offer robust investment opportunities within the Deyar Al Mafraq project. The development comprises a total area of 712,000 square metres, with a total gross floor area of 1,670,000 square metres.
