JEDDAH - Arabtec Saudi Arabia & Alsaad General Contracting joint venture announced on Saturday the achievement of a major milestone with the casting of the two raft foundations for the Lamar Towers, the tallest twin towers in the Western Region, Saudi Arabia.

Lamar project, developed by Cayan International Company, worth approximately SR2 billion, is on schedule.

In parallel, foundation works are also being carried out in the adjoining Podium areas along the tower footprints that will incorporate the residential and commercial units, and a shopping mall.

"We have just poured over 11,100 cubic meters using almost 3,000 tons of steel, covering an area of approximately 4,000 sq m and approximately 3m in depth, and it was all orchestrated smoothly" said Mehriz Abdo, senior project manager for the project.

The Arabtec slip-form system for the Towers' cores is already delivered to site and is being installed.

Major plant and equipment have already been mobilized to site and are now in operation. Lamar Towers incorporates futuristic architectural designs with twin glass towers aligned in a V shape. Tower 1 has 73 floors and Tower 2 has 65 floors and helipad with two basement levels including the mezzanine levels.

The Towers incorporate residential and commercial units which will include shopping malls.

"This is indeed a great accomplishment by the team and a milestone for both Jeddah and Saudi Arabia.

Our teams are very excited about our prospects in this new market" said Riad Kamal, CEO of Arabtec Holding.

As a repeat client, Cayan is confident Arabtec -Al Saad General Contracting, JV will deliver a high-quality and satisfactory finished product on time. "Our alliance with Arabtec Saudi Arabia has created a new perspective in building construction. We are confident of the pace of the work that we have observed which highlights Arabtec's project execution and management skills. Construction work is progressing and Cayan is looking forward to seeing the rest of the project take shape," said Usama Sarraj, Cayan development manager. "Due to Arabtec's strategic project management and integrated systems, they are on schedule as noticed in five months of construction," he said.

cayan is no longer the developer and there is another company took over.
I asked them for the price of 1 bed and it is unbelivably higher (like the price before recession 2007). I doubt the project will generate funds to complete. There have been a new campaign-ads in Saudi on roads for the project.


Cheers

I'm wondering the same. Becouse they almost started with kingdom tower, and its kind of funny that it seems that there is only one supertall U/C in whole city, and current tallest is not even supertal if I remember right.

True. They should build the Kingdom City before building the Kingdom Tower..

My friend youre wrong.
Because I read in some websites that Jeddah municipality is want to build 250 skyscrapers in the south of the city through the next 5 years.

and on the corniche thery are saying that there are more than 78 towers will have been build ( at that time, and it maybe increased through the years ) but not together . at 2010 there are 12 towers will be inagurated.


and I called cayan company and they are sayed that they are retreated from the project and the Zahran company is will build it .
when I was going to shumaicy hospital

I found a panel in street that was draw Lamar towers and the company
number
here it is :

920000400

I called them and the worker sayed
the project isn't stop
we're now working
and the digging is finished
the towers will finish in Mid 2012 .

The project is still under construction. But the contractors are not Arabtec + Al Saad JV.
I think Al Joudah (Subsidiary of Zahran - the new owner) is the main contractor now.

But I am not able to locate any relevant news in the internet. Can anyone help me with more newslinks regarding this please?
