Arabtec picks Viceroy to run two new Dubai hotels

Construction company Arabtec Holding has selected Viceroy Hotel Group to operate two properties it is currently developing in Dubai.

Located on Sheikh Zayed Road and in Dubai Business Bay, they are set to open in late 2016 and 2017 respectively. They join the previously announced Viceroy Dubai Palm Jumeirah, which is set to open in late 2016 on the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah.

Viceroy Hotel Group CEO Bill Walshe said: "Dubai is firmly established as one of the most progressive and dynamic hospitality destinations in the world, and we are excited to partner with Arabtec Holding to expand the Emirate's luxury hotel landscape.”

Located within walking distance of Dubai’s business and financial centres, Viceroy Dubai Sheikh Zayed Road will occupy a tower spanning 76 floors. Both hotels will offer similar qualities and experiential amenities.

Site perimeter shoring work should have been completed cause the machines doing that job have left and the slurry containers and site offices has been moved from the center to the side of the construction site.

The first piling rig has appeared on site, an escavator as well, so piling work is about to start

That means it's just a matter of weeks or only days until it gets moved to the U/C forum

Excellent news! If the cladding is handled well, this could end up being the nicest looking building on SZR, imo.

Still bears a resemblance to the Hard Rock Hotel, a design that I very much liked.

Yesterday was one piling rig on site. I couldn't notice if it was working but it was on different sides of the site the two times I drove by.

Also, on the second pic I posted on Sunday you can se two piling steel caisons on the right side of the site, and a third one inside.

They were pouring concrete today. Maybe that piling rig I have seen for the last couple of days, had actually cast the first pile already
