I know it couldve been worse, but these less than average boring buildings are increasingly outnumbering the top-notch attractive buildings (if there are any?). Thats why i said its a waste, because these plots will one day, suddenly, run out and you'll end up with, yes, a high, dense skyline but a really crappy-looking one too. I thought Nakheel had some sort of design guidelines which developers had to follow, is that true? From the looks of this tower, it doesnt seem so. Oh well...
Al Fara'a Group seeks to be an active player in UAE construction market
Abu Dhabi: Buoyed by the booming construction activity, the Al Fara'a Group has doubled growth in the last two years but expansion will be within the UAE only, a top company official said.
The company has won the Dh195 million contract to build the Al Waleed Paradise tower in Dubai.
"The last two years have seen unprecedented construction activity in the UAE, particularly in Dubai and all this has helped our group to post an overall 150 per cent growth," said Cfhairman J.R. Gangaramani.
"Due to the huge opportunities in Dubai, we have diverted our attention there with some big projects on hand.
"We recently won a Dh195 million contract to build the 34-storey Al Waleed Paradise tower in the Jumeirah Lakes project. We have also signed up for building three hotels in Dubai."
The Al Ain headquartered group currently has 30 projects underway, with 11 in Abu Dhabi and the rest in Dubai and Al Ain.
"Our focus is clearly to be an active player in the UAE market although prospects look very good in some neighbouring Gulf markets, such as Qatar where some contracts came our way. We will take up projects in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain."
Al Fara'a has set up two ready-mix plants on Palm Island in Dubai to cater to the growing construction work in progress, taking the total to six such plants in Dubai.
