#GROUND WORK: STELLA HOTEL, 31F, HOTEL (Former site of The Lighthouse)

On the plot of the failed Lighthouse tower. Hope this project will go better.




Ground works have started already:

Looking at the signboard again... I believe the number of floors should actually be counted as 31.

There's a heap of massive dump trucks clogging up the roads around here today waiting to get into this site, first sign of activity I've seen in months.

Thanks for the update propsearch_ae . . . . .

Not sure there is any new construction here yet, just excavation revealing the original part completed Lighthouse Tower foundations which were back filled years ago when the project owner Emad Ayoub absconded from Dubai with the investors money.

Yes, this is flying up, they've got a whole army of workers on site early til late.

It's already higher than Marina Park (the building you can see in the background in post no. 5).

Not entirely sure, but I think you are mixing buildings up

You could be right AltinD, from the photo the construction looks quite well back behind the Marina Park, the original Lighthouse foundations were tight up against the road this end of the Marina Park?

In that case, the plot right on the corner is still a big hole in the ground.

The building under construction is right next to Escan Marina, and looks like the same plot as most of the pictures above unless the angle makes it look closer than it is.

Yes, the building portrayed is the one next to Stella Hotel. Although a tower crane is erected on site so they should be preparing the raft now, if not already constructing the basement floors.
