Contracts awarded for Akoya by Damac
Dubai, October 30, 2013
Main construction contracts to build 677 luxury villas and 480 apartment units and over 100 other work orders and packages have been awarded at the Akoya by Damac project.
The 28 million sq ft golf community is being developed by the UAE-based Damac Properties.
The project includes a variety of luxury villas and condominiums, each with panoramic views of the Trump International Golf Club – the first Trump course to be operated and managed by the Trump Organisation in the Middle East/Asia.
Work orders already placed include the bulk earthworks with Al Naboodah Contracting, a 132KV substation construction with ETA and the construction, completion and maintenance of the golf driving range with the Desert Group.
World renowned architect Gil Hanse – who is also designing the course for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games – has been appointed to shape the Trump International Golf Club Dubai, and the concept design for the Akoya by Damac retail centre has been awarded.
“Work is well underway on the site. More than 100 pieces of heavy machinery are shaping the land and you can see the golf course already starting to take shape and green shoots of grass coming through. It is very exciting to see Akoya by Damac rise from the sand,” said Ziad El Chaar, managing director, Damac Properties.
Damac Properties has also completed construction of the sales centre on the site, where prospective owners can review the project and learn more about the investment opportunities available throughout the development.
DAMAC Properties is working with some of the most famous luxury brands in the world to bring a unique high-end living concept to Akoya by Damac. Projects in the development include the first Trump Estates in the Middle East region which will offer the kind of exemplary service and quality standards expected only from a Trump Property. – TradeArabia News Service
