عقد بقيمة 3.5 مليارات درهم لبناء «ون زعبيل »
ذكرت ميد أن مؤسسة دبي للاستثمارات الحكومية أرست عقداً بقيمة 950 مليون دولار (نحو 3.5 مليارات درهم) على شركة «اليك» للمقاولات لبناء مشروع أبراج «ون زعبيل».

وقالت المجلة الاقتصادية إن ترسية العقد الذي يعد ثاني أكبر عقد بناء تتم ترسيته في دبي هذا العام، يأتي في أعقاب استكمال استحواذ مؤسسة دبي للاستثمارات على «اليك» في شهر مايو.

وقد صمم المشروع الذي سيتم إنجازه في منطقة مركز دبي التجاري العالمي ليكون معلماً جديداً من معالم دبي، متضمناً بناء برجين شاهقين متصلين بجسر معلق.

وعهد بإدارة المشروع إلى شركة «ميس» البريطانية، فيما تولت شركة نيكين سيكي اليابانية الهندسة المعمارية، وتولت هندسة الهيكل دبليو اس بي البريطانية.

ALEC received construction contract for 3.5b, which means ground works done here, construction to start after ramadan.

First crane is being erected over night on the shorter tower plot (Za'abeel side),, I hope they get above ground before year end.

Wait what!!!! this is great if true .. will ask them in Cityscape for sure

Located adjacent to Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), One Za’abeel will feature two towers, one comprising residential apartments and the other, a five-star hotel. Each tower will stand more than 300m in height.

That's excellent news, 330m and 235m does sound too short for 90F and 70F.

exactly I always thought of it to be short especially 70F for 235m .. they are most probably supertalls

EDIT:

I just had a second look at the renders and they are definitely taller than the numbers we have, plus on skybridge levels, floor ceiling is way higher than normal AND it is 70 and 90 floors WITHOUT counting the podium!!

Does anybody know how much elevated the bridge that crosses in between the towers is? we can use that to estimate the height of the towers

I think its more like 320m for shorter and 380 for taller! anyhow Gabe you are right on your comment on the other thread, we need more of these to offset the Disneyland supertalls of the SZR

Very intrigued by how are they going to lift and assemble this massive cantilever with a public road running beneath it!

I still don't understand how they can build the skybridge and keep the road open.

If closing the road is NECESSARY, it think it will be done in the night of Thursday or Friday with road closed by the police.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Maybe we will have more self diving cars available by the time these 2 Towers are finished.
