Abu Dhabi, UAE - December 22, 2019: Modon Properties (Modon), a master developer of real estate, destination and residential projects in Abu Dhabi and a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Developmental Holding Company PJSC, announced the commencement of construction for five permanent mosques in the northern part of Riyadh City with a total capacity of 2,500 worshipers.
Mosque sites have been chosen in collaboration with the General Authority for Islamic Affairs and Endowments, alongside the Department of Municipal Affairs and Transport, in each of the following basins: 15RD, 24RD, 28RD, 30RD and 32RD. These decisions were made based on the population percentage, with future expansion plans. The construction is expected to be complete by the second quarter of 2020, in time to receive worshipers during the holy month of Ramadan, with each mosque having a capacity between 400 and 500.
Each of the five mosques have been designed using a distinctive and traditional architectural style, in line with the standards set by the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments. Two of the mosques will be 487 square meters in size, another two will be 609 square meters in size, and the fifth will cover 593 square meters.
Each mosque will include a women's prayer room, a muezzin room, and an imam room, as well as two internal and external ablution areas, providing the highest quality facilities for worshipers. Upon their completion, the five mosques will be managed by the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments. 
CEO of Modon, Abdulla Al Sahi, commented: “The construction of these mosques reflects Modon's commitment to building integrated residential communities in Abu Dhabi. We are keen to ensure that future communities enjoy a wide variety of high-quality facilities.
“I wish to thank the General Authority for Islamic Affairs and Endowments, alongside the Department of Municipalities and Transport, for their continued support which they provided to Modon during the study of how best to distribute the mosques, alongside their co-ordination to ensure mosques are provided with sufficient human resources and supplies upon their completion,” he concluded. 
In addition to the permanent mosques, five temporary mosques were developed in 2018 by Modon in basins 7, 12, 14, 23 and 25, with a total capacity of over 1,600 worshipers. They are currently supervised by the General Authority for Islamic Affairs and Endowments.
The mosques will enhance life in Abu Dhabi by providing residents with multiple choices and locations. Modon aims to create culturally-minded developments where the sense of community and family remains at the core of the project.
Riyadh City is one of Abu Dhabi's and the UAE's most prominent housing projects, and will accommodate over 200,000 people on its completion, making it the largest residential development community in Abu Dhabi. The completed project will feature a wide range of high quality community facilities, including parks, schools, shops, mosques, medical centers, and community centers, which will meet the highest of sustainability standards. In addition, Riyadh City will contain vast open spaces, and will be home to the largest park in Abu Dhabi.
