Arabtec begins tower work
CONSTRUCTION UAE
27 Apr 2007
The local Arabtec Construction has started work on a twin tower development at Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

The 22-month contract, which is estimated at more than AED 1,000 million ($272 million), involves the construction of a 49-storey office tower and a 51-storey residential tower on a plot next to the Murooj complex that will act as a gateway into DIFC.

The total built-up area is 370,000 square metres. Al-Basti & Muktha and Al-Shafar General Contracting, both local, were the other bidders.

The project is Arabtec’s latest at DIFC. The contractor is working on the 1.2-kilometre-long truck tunnel, and the Sky Gardens and Gate Village developments.

The UK’s Hopkins Architects is the lead consultant for the project. It is being developed by a joint venture of Dubai Properties and Deyaar Development, the real estate subsidiary of Dubai Islamic Bank (MEED 20:10:06).

Thanx for the update... although not much seems to have happened in a week, except for a little bit of cladding on the left tower. Even the cranes are in same position - but the the crane to the right has been raised, so I hope this nice project in the shadow of Burj Dubai will speed up again! :)
