ACC to build Jordan’s tallest building
Abu Dhabi, August 17, 2010
Arabian Construction Company (ACC) has been awarded Dh342 million ($93.11 million) contract by Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Tourism Investment (ETI) company to build the Rotana Hotel Tower in Abdali, Jordan.
Upon completion in 2013, the tower will be the tallest building in Jordan, standing at 188 meters, a statement said.
“We are very pleased with this latest contract and to now have the opportunity to build a tall tower in Amman, after having built many state-of-the-art, iconic high rises across the Middle East, including the UAE, Lebanon and Qatar,” said Maher Merehbi, ACC's CEO.
The Rotana Hotel will be a 5-star establishment with a total built-up area of 66,800 sq m and will consist of seven basements with the capacity to fit 180 cars; 50 floors featuring 425 rooms; a gym; spa; pool deck and several restaurants.
ACC – who has already started work on the project – is the general contractor, and will oversee the tower’s construction, which includes: structural and façade cladding, architectural and civil works, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP), back of house (BOH), interior finishes and external works.
The hotel will be located in the Abdali Disctrict in downtown Amman and forms part of the Abdali Urban Regeneration Project which aims to modernise downtown Amman through mixed-use development, state-of-the-art infrastructure, technology, security and a well structured network of roads. – TradeArabia News Service
