We are pleased to send out this 3rd update to our community members locally and abroad on the progress of the construction of “AL QA’EEM” Building.
The AFED Building named after our 12th Imam Al Hujjah (ATFS) – “AL QA’EEM” is located on our Plot 9 Jacaranda Road, Arusha – Tanzania. The official Ground-Breaking of this Building took place in March 2012.
The eight (8) floors building will consist of 24 flats (each floor will have two flats of 2 bedrooms and one of 3 bedrooms). The “AL QA’EEM” Housing Project is for the deserving members of our community in Arusha.
The construction of the Building is undertaken by a prominent construction company from Dar es Salaam, M/s. Super Construction Company Ltd. The construction works started in August, 2012 after completing the formalities of the Government and City Council of seeking approvals, permits etc. and the delivery of the building is expected by March 2014, Insha’Allah.
Following the last report issued by the AFED Secretariat in December 2012, progress of the construction of the Building since then has been remarkable, we are optimistic that the completion of this project will be in line with the timeframe agreed upon with the Contractor.
