AMMAN | Saraya Abdali and W Hotel | 36 fl | App







Quote:
Sited in the new development district of Al-Abdali in Amman, Jordan, this mixed-use development includes a 6-story podium of office space that serves as a new headquarters for the developer and also includes a 30-story tower housing a 5-star hotel and branded luxury residences.

The inspiration for the building form comes from the sandstone canyon lands of Southern Jordan, carved by Wadi (rivers) over tens of thousands of years. On the property, major entrance canyons and vertical circulation paths are revealed to the exterior as fissures in the buildings' locally-sourced rock faces. Daylight enters through these fissures deep into the buildings’ public spaces. At night, the light emanates through the dramatic cracks to broadcast these thresholds to the surrounding buildings and establish an iconic presence on the skyline.

The property's common amenities include two restaurants, a bar, a business center, a swimming pool, a spa and fitness club. These amentities are located atop the podium roof to take full advantage of sun and the outdoors.

Dubai Construction wins $220m Amman tower contract

on Dec 6, 2012


Quote:
Dubai Construction Company has won the contract to build a $200m mixed-use tower in Amman.

The 78,000m2, 36-storey tower will contain the first five-star W Hotel in Jordan, which will have 280 rooms and 42 serviced apartments. The tower will sit on top of an eight-level podium containing high-end retail units, office space and hotel facilities.

Civil works for the project are expected to start in the first half of 2015 and the project has an expected completion date of end-2015, with the hotel due to open in 2016.

The tower is being developed by Seraya Abdali and has been designed by architectural practice Perkins & Will.

DCC's CEO Abdallah H. Yabroudi said: “We are very happy to draw on our experience and rich expertise for the implementation of this prestigious project on behalf of Saraya, which will be a positive contribution to boosting world-class infrastructure for Jordan's tourism industry.

"DCC is committed to the achievement of the aspired goals of both companies, which will contribute significantly to the Jordanian economy at large.”

Saraya Abdali Real Estate Investment Company general manager Khalil S. Saket added: “The signing of this contract is a major milestone that ushers in an exciting stage in our business plans.

"We are pleased to entrust our development project to Dubai Construction Company, a Jordanian firm that enjoys the full support of its parent company, DCC, who have a proven track record to their credit in the UAE and are expanding further into the region. We look forward to starting construction in a few months' time."
