17.07.08 - ALEC awarded DIFC contract

The design and construct contract for a mixed use development in the Dubai International Finance Centre has been awarded to ALEC by our partner Al Jaber on the 17th of July.

#1 Park Avenue is a 400m+ mixed use high rise development comprising commercial, residential and a 5+ Star hotel with retail/F&B throughout. The operator of the 5 Star hotel is yet to be announced and will be located in the upper portion of the building. The lower podium areas will contain numerous retail and F&B outlets which will be accessible via bridge connections from the surrounding area.

Bulk earth works will begin in November 2008 and structure is planned to start by January 2010. Total site area is 18,381m2 and project GFA is approximately 285,000m2. Project completion is being targeted for mid 2013.

This building will be 850 meters tall, a birdie told me.

I wonder how many of these proposals and "visions" will actually be built as depicted. In any case, Dubai appears to be the new world center for building skyscrapers.

sometime i am confuse, who are build so many supertallers building in Dubai ?
is UEA goverment or foreign conglomerate ?

And Dubai really need so many supertaller today ?
we know the Dubai population only 1 million people, then for whom they build ? for Dubai image only or for their need today ?

I think Dubai really dont need so many supertaller building. Dubai is not like New york, Tokyo or Shanghai that really need so many building.

Let Dubai go for it!
It will either end in tears or as the success story of a generation.

Either way, none can say Dubai did not reach for the stars.
