Turkish contractors to rebuild Sadr City in Baghdad
Hurriyet Daily News - [12/10/2010]


A Turkish consortium wins the bid for construction of Baghdad’s Sadr City, offering to complete the massive project for $11.3 billion. The project involves construction of a modern city of 75,000 housing units to accommodate up to 600,000 people.

The project will be finished in nearly four years. The Turkish consortium competed against four key bidders, although more than 50 groups had applied Turkish contractors won a huge bid to rebuild the Sadr City neighborhood of Iraq’s capital Baghdad. The project will be funded by the Iraq central government and will cost nearly $11.3 billion.

Six Turkish contractors, Koçoًlu Tarma‏, Kur فn‏aat, Kazova, Ulubol-ف‏kaya formed a consortium in which they all have equal shares. The result of the bid was announced Thursday.

The project involves construction of a modern city of 75,000 housing units to accommodate 500,000 or 600,000 people. All units will be opened to their owners at the same time, according to the plans.

The project does not only involve construction of houses, but also requires building of social facilities such as mosques and schools.

It took the Turkish consortium three months to prepare the bid offer.

Some 52 groups applied for the bid, however only 13 were good enough to be granted efficiency. Of the 13, only four companies were selected for the bid, two of which from Iran and the third being a Thailand-Iraqi partnership.

The Turkish consortium offered to build the project for around $11.3 billion, whereas Arkanayd from Iran offered $11.5 billion. The Thailand-Iraqi partnership (MTV-Mivan) offered $14.3 billion and Dasht Shayan Tosee and Kaysun partnership from Iran said it would build the projects for $17.9 billion.

According to the terms of the bid, the Turkish consortium has to finish the project in approximately four years.

A total of $5 billion of the allocation has already been collected for the project and the Turkish consortium is now waiting for the allocation of the land and for the final authorization from Iraqi government, which is reported to declare its final decision as early as next week.

According to the feasibility figures, some 22,000 people will work in the construction, 7,000 of which are construction and technical workers. Some $7 billion or $8 billion is predicted for expenditures like construction materials, cement, machinery and equipment.

The consortium will work with many subcontractors on electric systems, logistics, cement plants, tunnel doors and various construction machines. Therefore, many other companies will do business for the project.

The amount allocated for the construction of Sadr City equals the amount needed for construction of four or five Bosphorus bridges.

A team of 30 architects was gathered for the projects under the guidance of Nejdat K‎ran Yaz‎c‎, the owner of architecture firm NYK

how will the allocate land? where will this be built? will they be adding new blocks to thawra or demolish existing ones? (the existing ones are now private property... so getting that land will take years on its own).

many questions... so few answers. at least the projects in baladiyat / shema3iya is on government land which makes land allocation quick and easy.

When will we see some designs?

What worries me is that 2.5 million people live in Sadr City, so if it will only house 600k people, what will happen to the rest?

^^ sadr city redevelopment is more than just this project, there are 2 other big projects like this one in baghdad alone. but this is the first to reach this stage. Hopefully we'll hear something about the other mega residential projects.

Sadr city will not be fixed by a single project, it's a long term plan.

no, but people who have lived under oppression, who have always been marginalised by government, has contributed many martyres, consistently had bad schools, healthcare, food, electricity etc, should get help. They have always got it worse than any other Iraqi

Maybe a piece of land or or something, maybe some money, or if not, then the government must cut the million sof red tape, change the investment laws, and push for Iraq to be a business friendly country and even bring about mortgages.

You cany just tell them off you go and buld yiurselves a home

come on wasta.

half of thawra was in "jaysh al quds" and mukhabarat and "asdiqa il rais"! if you said basra or amarah, i would have agreed with you! they never even rose up against saddam in 1991 (on the contrary, the sadrists helped out against the "hakim" revolt in najaf and karbala).

providing new free houses for 25% of thawra's residents is very generous. The other 75% can pay their way like the rest of the country.

A lot of people are not good, but not all, in fact Sadr City was bombed by artillery in 1999, and they have sacrificed a lot.

As to their backwardness what can we do, its a place that has been neglected since 1958 when it was created.

Look, these people are poor, and poverty brings about ignorance.
